lyrics:  

Well I've been going down to the other side of town
Where there's a gentleman who plays the dobro for free
I asked him to teach me all that he preached to me
He said, "first, you're going to have a drink with me"

With his dobro on his knee, he looked across at me
He said, "there's a rumor about Hank Williams I should tell you
For several years of his life, he had a Mexican wife
She mixed him a very special brew"

(chorus:)
So I'm drinking that honkytonk tequila and I'm beginning to feel
That someday you may be an uncle to my kid (my first born son)
When he wants an explanation for his daddy's reputation
Don't you tell him about all the things we did
Don't you tell him about all the things we did

Well, the man said, "always abide by the melody inside
Some sing it high, some sing it low
No matter where you sing, don't forget one thing
That this ain't no dog and pony show"

(chorus x2)

Though it wasn't part of the plan
I'm now playing in the band
A better life? I really couldn't say
At night I sing the blues
For the girl I had to lose
She couldn't take my honktyonk ways

(chorus x2)
