Lyrics
Honky Tonk Moon Dirt road in the twilight Woods so cool and dark Up ahead pale neon Somewhere a dog barks Honky tonk moon keeps shining on my baby and me Breaking up the pool balls Chalking up the cues Jukebox pumping softly Lazy summer blues Honky tonk moon keeps shining on my baby and me Through the blue smoky haze All through the days Troubles seem to melt away My heart's on a roll I'm easy in my soul There's no hurry, no worry Things are going my way My arms around my baby Shuffling on the floor Cigarettes and sawdust Squeaky old screen door Honky tonk moon keeps shining on my baby and me Through the blue smoky haze All through the days Troubles seem to melt away My heart's on a roll I'm easy in my soul There's no hurry, no worry Things are going my way Outside the dark has fallen Stars are winking bright An old hoot owl is calling Everything's all right Honky tonk moon keeps shining on my baby and me Honky tonk moon keeps shining on my baby and me
