Dirt road in the twilight, woods so cool and dark.
Up ahead pale neon, somewhere a dog barks,
Honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me

Breaking up the pool balls, chalking up the cues
Jukebox pumping softly, lazy summer blues
Honky tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me

Through the blue smoky haze, all through the haze
Trouble seems to melt away,
My heart's on a roll, I'm easy in my soul
There's no hurry, no worry, things are goin' my way

My arms around my baby, shufflin' on the floor
Cigarettes and saw-dust, squeaky old screen door.
Honky tonk moon, keeps shinin' on my baby and me.

Outside the dark is falling, stars are twinkling bright
That old hoot owl is calling, every-things all right

Honky tonk moon, keeps shinin' on my baby and me.
Honky tonk moon, keeps shinin' on my baby and me.
