Where you see a * with a number by it in this tab, it indicates a riff,
all of which are tabbed at the end of the song.

                      E
Well I'm a honky tonk man, and I can't seem to stop,
                           *3                                  *1 
                           A                                E
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox.
          
                        B 
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone,
                                                 *1
         E
Singin' 'Hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home'.



          E                   B
Well now, I'm livin' wild and dangerously,
    A                  E
But I've got plenty of company.
                               B
When the moon comes up and the sun goes down,
A                       E  
I can't wait to see the lights of town.



                           *1                        *4
                        E
'Cause I'm a honky tonk man, and I can't seem to stop,
                             *3                                *1
                           A                                E 
I love to give the girls a whirl to the music of an old jukebox.

                        B
But when my money's all gone, I'm on the telephone,

         E 
Singin' 'Hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home'.

Singin' 'Hey, hey mama, can your daddy come home'.



  E                        B
A pretty little girl and a jug of wine,
     A                              E
Well that's what it takes to make a honky tonk time.
                               B
With the jukebox moanin' those honky tonk sounds,
A                      E 
I can't wait to lay my money down.
