George Goss — Ain't No Honkytonks In Jail lyrics

Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail
No cigarettes, they read your mail
You can’t hear the jukebox wail
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

Ain’t no dancin’ goin’ on
No guitar pickin’ all night long
Nobody’s here to pay my bail
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

There ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail
Should have walked that straight and narrow trail
My freedom’s gone and I live in Hell
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

Give me three square meals a day
Some commissary and a place to lay
There’s twenty-one men in a ten man cell
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

I read the Good Book, I’ve got time
I’d love to see that neon sign
I’d love to hear that jukebox wail
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

There ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail
Should have walked that straight and narrow trail
My el Camino’s up for sale
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

They turned me loose on work release
I didn’t come back, they sent Police
Said “Boy you’ll be in here a spell”
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

There ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail
Should have walked that straight and narrow trail
The old man thinks that I have failed
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail

There ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail
Should have walked that straight and narrow trail
My car’s impounded and for sale
Ain’t no Honky Tonks in jail
