The fiddles are squeakin' The guitars are speakin' The piano plays a jelly-roll The man on the drum is far from dumb And the bassman, he plays from his soul The tables are shakin' And your nerves are quakin' But you keep on askin' for more You keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor You keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor Well, there's a waitress handy And she don't sell candy And she don't sell soda pop There's a fat bartender Who's there to serve you If you really want to blow your top And if you got no money, there's a little honey She's a girl that you adore You keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor You keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor Your payday's Saturday You're broke on Sunday Come Monday, you're feelin' sore You got big black eyes that you picked up From a little guy the night before So you swear off to drinkin' But when you get to thinkin' On the good times you had, oh Lord So keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor You keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor On a honky tonk hardwood floor You keep a-havin' your fun You lucky son of a gun On a honky tonk hardwood floor Ow!

Walk on By 02:25
If I see you tomorrow on some street in town Pardon me, if I don't say hello I belong to another, it wouldn't look so good To know someone I'm not supposed to know Just walk on by, wait on the corner I love you, but we're strangers when we meet Just walk on by, wait on the corner I love you, but we're strangers when we meet In a dimly lit corner in a spot outside of town Tonight we'll try to say goodbye again But I know it's not over, I'll call tomorrow night I can't let you go, so why pretend? Just walk on by, wait on the corner I love you, but we're strangers when we meet Just walk on by, wait on the corner I love you, but we're strangers when we meet

about

Nick Lowe and His Cowboy Outfit recorded a few classic country covers during their 1984 recording sessions. Two of those covers have never been released digitally before until now: a hootenanny-starting rendition of Johnny Horton's "Honky Tonk Hardwood Floor" and a crooning cover of Leroy Van Dyke's "Walk on By".
