Jim Reeves – Mother Of A Honky Tonk Girl Lyrics

They’d bring her in the tavern
And set her on a stool
And give her a drink of their beer and laugh. (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 remember this girl
They’re whispering about
Just like it was yesterday
When she was small. I thought, oh, you crazy fools. And I just cry
When I hear a mother say. 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. 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. 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. (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. 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.
