There's a Honkey Tonk on the edge of town I used to call my second home It's a place to go just to get away When I wanted to be alone
Well, early one morning had a fight with my darling That went from bad to worse It ended when she said "Your second home, just became your first"
[Chorus] Now the jukebox is my alarm clock, I wake up in a corner booth I don't have a tab, don't need no cab Cause the dance floor is my living room Well, I might die of a broken heart But I'll never die of thirst Now that my second home has become my first
Well I don't have to pay no mortgage I don't have to mow no lawn a lot of friends come to see me Some stay until the break of dawn
I can paint the town without leaving the house I can feel good until it hurts Now that my home sweet second home Just became my first
