Randy Travis – 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

Keep shining on my baby and me

Chorus:

Through the blue smoky haze

All through the day

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

Keep shining on my baby and me

Chorus:

Outside the dark has fallen

Stars are winking bright

An old hoot owl is calling

Everything’s all right

Honky tonk moon

Keep shining on my baby and me.i
