Honky Tonk Woman Lyrics

Sugar

I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis
I tried to take her upstairs for a ride
I had to heave her right across my shoulder
I just don't seem to drink you off my mind

Honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Strollin' on the boulevards of Paris
As naked as the day that I will die
The sailors, they're so charming there in Paris
They just don't seem to sail you off my mind

It's a honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

Honky tonk, honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

There are 2 versions of the song. DUH. One with the lyrics about Paris and the other about the Divorcee. One is called Honky Tonk Women, one is called Country Honk.

These are the right lyrics for Live in SF (bootleg) except they also sing the divorcee lyric (with I 'laid' a divorcee, not 'saw')

I met a divorcee in new york city, I had to put up some kind of a fight. The lady then she covered me with roses, She blew my nose and then she blew my mind. ... Sound about right?

I've heard these lyrics used on plenty of earlier stuff. Get Yer Ya-Ya's out, comes to mind. Either way, great, great song...one of their best.
