American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

Album: In Pieces (1993)
  • If your paycheck depends on
    The weather and the clock
    If your conversation calls for
    A little more than a coffee pot
    If you need to pour your heart out
    And try to rectify some situation
    That you're facing
    Contact your American Honky Tonk Bar Association

    When Uncle Sam dips in your pocket
    Now for most things you don't mind
    But when your dollar goes to all of those
    Standing in a welfare line
    Rejoice you have a voice
    If you're concerned about the destination
    Of this great nation
    Contact your American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

    We're talkin' about your
    Hard hat, gunrack, achin'-back
    Over taxed, flag-wavin', fun-lovin' crowd
    They're heart is in the music
    And they love to play it loud
    There's no forms or applications
    There's no red tape administrations
    It's the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

    We're all one big family
    Throughout the cities and the towns
    We don't reach for handouts
    we reach for those who are down
    And every local chapter has a seven day a week
    Available consultation
    For your frustration
    It's called the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association

    We're talkin' about your
    Mud flaps, six pack, beer crack
    Over-taxed, flag-wavin', fun-lovin' crowd
    They're heart is in the music
    And they love to play it loud
    There's no forms or no applications
    There's no red tape administrations
    It's the American Honky-Tonk Bar Association
