Tyler Childers – Honky Tonk Flame (Purgatory Album) letras

I was out of my mind the first night we met
I was feeling lonely and blue
I just moved to the country to get me some rest
The city put a hurtin’ on you
Especially a fella from eastern Kentucky
Without a penny or a worth to his name
Wasting his life on a burning desire and chasing that honky tonk flame

You were soft on the eyes and a hymn on the hearin’
Leaving me helpless of lines
To get you to listen to the way I was feeling
And the plans I had made for our night

Hold on now buddy won’t you wait up a minute
You’re mistaken if you think I’m the same
As them skirts you’ve been chasing all over town
Along with that honky tonk flame
I’m a woman with a love so true
Truth of the matter, I’d give it to you
You just got to slow down and quit acting that way
Burning your barn in this honky tonk flame

You were sweet to the touch and a touch for the takin’
The minute I learned how to breed
Finally found out that the love of a woman
Who love me was all that I need
Still on the road cuz I ain’t good for nothin’
Except writin’ the songs that I sing
Beating them strings like they’re owin’ me money
And chasing that honky tonk flame

But I’ve got me a woman with a love so true
That’s darlin’ to me, but that’s misses to you
All I did was slow down
Quit acting that way
Burning my barn in this honky tonk flame
