Here we go

I'm sitting in a bar, tippling a jar in Jackson
And on the street the summer sun it shines
There's many a barroom queen I've had in Jackson
But I just can't seem to drink you off my mind

It's the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

I laid a divorcée in New York City
I had to put up some kind of a fight
The lady she all dressed me up in roses
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

Ah yes
