Honky Tonk Women

Lyrics: Jagger, Richard
Music: Jagger, Richard

A Rolling Stones song covered by the New Riders of the Purple Sage

I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis
She tried to take me upstairs for a ride
She had to heave me right across her shoulder
'Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind

Chorus
It's the honky tonk women
They gimme, they gimme, they gimme the honky tonk blues
Honky tonk women
They gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues

I laid a divorcee in New York City
I had to put up some kind of a fight
The lady then she covered me with roses
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

[chorus]
[chorus]

I laid a divorcee back home in Frisco
I had to put up some kind of a fight
The lady then she covered me with roses
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind

[chorus]
[chorus]
