Well, it won’t be long now
Til that ‘ol sun goes down
And darkness helps me hide my shameful tears
My wife works all night long
For a man who’s halfway gone
She’s the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs

It’s a shame she wears the name
Of a man who’s locked and chained
To a bottle that’s destroyin’ all hopes and cares
To the men with hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
She’s the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs

It’s a shame she wears the name
Of a man who’s locked and chained
To a bottle that’s destroyin’ all hopes and cares
To the men with hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
She’s the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs
