Close Up The Honky Tonks
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics

She's in some honky tonk tonight I know
She's dancing where the music's loud and lights are low
In a crowed bar she likes to hang around
And as long as there's a honky tonk, she'll never settle down
So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors
Don't let the one I love go there any more
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key
Then maybe the one I love will come back to me
I wish I had the power to turn back the time
And live again the hours when she was all mine
But it hurts to see her running with that crowd down
And as long as there's a honky tonk, she'll never settle down

At 2:13 kills me when he drops his hand from the guitar and again at 3:54 when he shakes the tambourine against his hip. Love this song and this version.

I love the video, Dwight is a powerful musician, and I cannot believe Fred Durst directed this amazing video.
