Dim Lights Thick Smoke
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
It's the only kind of life you'll ever understand
Oh, dim lights, thick smoke and loud, loud music
You'll never make a wife, to a home loving man

At home eight little children, mean nothing to you
A house filled with love and a husband so true
You'd rather have a drink with the first guy you meet
And the only home you know, that ṗub down the street
Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
It's the only kind of life you'll ever understand
Whoa, dim lights, thick smoke and loud, loud music
You'll never make a wife, to a home loving man

Drinking and dancing to a honky tonk band
When you left your loving family life back, right back where you ran
So go on and have your fun, but you won't always look so smart
When some day that lonely bar room break your honky-tonk heart

Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
It's the only kind of life you'll ever understand
Whoa, dim lights, thick smoke and loud, loud music
You'll never look at your wife, to a home loving man
Oh you'll never look at your wife, to a home loving man

Dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music
You'll never look at your wife, to a home loving man

I had a big exam today for Nursing School..... this song was stuck in my head since I woke up....... made studying today very difficult ....... as soon as the exam was over I kept hearing this in my head so I had to give in and play in on youtube in the library ...... thank goodness for headphones!

I grew up listening to him all my life and my grandfather was a huge fan that made me listen to him the first time I have loved his music ever since and my grandpa past away last year and we were going to go to a concert of his a couple weeks latter but we didn't make it and I didn't go I wish I would have now because he hasn't played in utah for a while
