Close Up The Honky Tonks(Chords)

Dwight Yoakam

Key: A
 
Intro:  A 
A                                   D 
She's in some honky tonk tonight, I know 
E                                                    A 
She's dancing where the music's loud and lights are low 
A                              D 
In a crowded bar she likes to hang around 
E                                                         A 
And as long as there's a honky tonk she'll never settle down 

A                             D 
So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors 
E                                  A 
Don't let the one I love go there anymore 
A                           D 
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key 
E                                          A 
And maybe the one I love will come back to me 

(The following verse is played with a tambourine - no guitar except for electric and pedal steel is played.  
You can still play it if you want to) 

A                           D 
If I had the power Iā??d turn back time 
E                                      A 
And live again the hours when she was all mine 
A                                             D 
It hurts to see her running with that crowd in town 
E                                                        A 
But as long as there's a honky tonk she'll never settle down 

A                             D 
So close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors 
E                                  A 
Don't let the one I love go there anymore 
A                           D 
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key 
E                                          A 
And maybe the one I love will come back to me 
E                                            A 
Yeah, maybe the one I love will come back to me 


(The following is just played with acoustic guitar with electric guitar stums) 

A                          D 
Close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors 
E                                  A 
Don't let the one I love go there anymore 
A                           D 
Close up the honky tonks, throw away the key 
E                                          A 
And maybe the one I love will come back to me 

A                          D 
Close up the honky tonks, lock all the doors 
E                                  A 
Don't let the one I love go there anymore
