Cue Sheet

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 juke box

Left allemande and you weave
When my money's all gone I am gonna telephone, singing
Swing your mama and promenade home
Singing hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru 4 hands
Dosado, swing thru, boys run
Tag the line all the way, cloverleaf
Girls square thru 3/4, swing your corner lady
Promenade her down
*The moon comes up and that sun goes down
And I can't wait till I see the lights of town


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Hey, pretty girl, and a jug of wine
So that's what it takes to make a honky tonk time

*Hey, a juke box knows only a honky tonk sound
Well I can't wait to lay my money down

*I live wild and dangerously
I've got plenty of company


TAG

Swing your lady singing
Hey, hey mama, hey, hey mama
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.
