OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I'm a honky tonky man and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox

Left allemande and you weave
When my money's all gone I'm on the telephone, singing
Hey, hey, mama
, swing and promenade home
Singing hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru go 4,
Meet your corner do a dosado, swing thru, and then
Spin your top, boys move up, do a right & left thru
Flutter wheel across that ring, sweep 1/4 more,
Swing the corner lady, promenade her back home
Singing hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home?


TAG

Swing her
Singing hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home?

Honky Tonk Man

I'm a honky tonk man, and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollerin' he-ey momma can your daddy come home?

I'm livin' fast and dangerously
But I've got plenty of company
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down
That's when I wanna see the lights of town

Cause I'm a honky tonk man, and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollerin' he-ey momma can your daddy come home?

I'm a honky tonk man, and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollerin' he-ey momma can your daddy come home?

It takes a purdy little gal and a jug of wine
That's what it takes to make a honky tonk mind
With the jukebox a moanin' a honky tonk sound
That's when I wanna lay my money down

Cause I'm a honky tonk man, and I can't seem to stop
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone
Hollerin' he-ey momma can your daddy come home?

Lyrics by Johnny Horton, Tillman Franks and Howard Hausey.
Recorded by Johnny Horton.
