Jim Reeves – Mother Of A Honky Tonk Girl Lyrics

I remember this girl
They’re whispering about
Just like it was yesterday
When she was small. Once they’re on the wrong road
With temptation let us turn around
Like the girl they’re all talking about
The one they’re running down. Instead of giving her a drink of beer
Where angels have never trod
They should have given her a taste of love
Yes, and a taste of God. They’d bring her in the tavern
And set her on a stool
And give her a drink of their beer and laugh. (Spoken – Jim)
You probably wonder why
I chose to condemn the stuff I sell
But I’ve seen the hurt it’s caused
And the souls it’s sent to hell. JIM REEVESMother Of A Honky Tonk Girl Lyrics
(Sang – Carol)
I’m the mother of a honky tonk girl
And I die when they speak my babies name
I hope that God will forgive me
For now I know that I’m to blame. (Sang – Carol)
I’m the mother of a honky tonk girl
And I die when they speak my babies name
I hope that God will forgive me
For now I know that I’m to blame. (Sang – Carol)
I hope that God will forgive me
I’m the mother of a honky tonk girl… I thought, oh, you crazy fools. But what could I do
Or what could I say
I’m just a bar tender
And work here for my pay. (Spoken – Jim)
Excuse me friend
For intruding this way
But there’s somethng
I’ve just got to say. And I just cry
When I hear a mother say.
