George Strait — Honky Tonk Downstairs lyrics

Well, it won't be long now
Til that 'ol sun goes down
And darkness helps me hide my shameful tears.
My wife works all night long
For a man who's halfway gone
She's the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs.

Chorus:
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/george-strait-honky-tonk-downstairs-lyrics.html ]
It's a shame she wears the name
Of a man who's locked and chained
To a bottle that's destroyin' all hopes and cares.
To the men with hungry eyes
She works and hides her pride
She's the barmaid in the honky-tonk downstairs.

Repeat Chorus
