Honky Tonk in Heaven

Well its Friday night and Im heading out for a Texas honky tonk.
Where that steel guitar and fiddle keep folks on the floor all night long.
Now til closing time well kick it up and have a laugh or two.
Good times enough to last the whole night through.

As time rolls on the by and by gets closer by the day.
I fear not the circumstance when I pack it in and I ride away.
To a better place where happy hour occurs most all the time.
And a barstool waits for me in paradise.

Well there better be a honky tonk, in heaven.
You know eternity, lasts so long.
Ill be there dancing across the floor, through the peanut shells galore.
With St. Peter checking IDs at the door.

When I walk into that honky tonk, in heaven.
You can bet Im gonna saddle up and tie one on.
And sit and toast my passed on redneck friends, and joke about the bitter end.
When we checked out and we bought that train ride in.

Inside those swinging doors therell be some folks Id like to meet.
Like Hank and Buc to name a few, John R., Waylon and #3.
In a smoke filled room Id shake their hands and shed a happy tear.
Then Id sit right down and buy those boys a beer.

You can disregard the clock youll never hear the words last call.
Mind the cowboy code and belly up for all the tales long and tall.
Past the pearly gates a welcome written in a neon sign,
Says open day and night until the end of time.

Well there better be a honky tonk, in heaven.
You know eternity, lasts so long.
Ill be there dancing across the floor, through the peanut shells galore.
With St. Peter checking IDs at the door.

When I walk into that honky tonk, in heaven.
You can bet Im gonna saddle up and tie one on.
And sit and toast my passed on redneck friends, and joke about the bitter end.
When we checked out and we bought that train ride in.

Well there better be a honky tonk.in heaven.
