Heaven Ain't A Honky Tonk Recorded by Mickey Gilley Written by Mack Vickery
G C G Well I was just a boy the first time that I saw Birmingham A7 D7 Walking down the streets holding on to Momma's hand G C G When I bumped into a wino with a bottle in his hand C G E7 A7 D7 G He staggered up to listen to the preacher and the band
C G He had a parking meter for the alter of his sidewalk church A7 D7 The old base drum that was his band the worst I'd ever heard G C G And I can still see that old wino down on his knees C G E7 A7 D7 G As he gave his soul to God when he heard him preach
C G He said heaven ain't a honky tonk and them pearly gates don't swing A7 D7 The clouds ain't made of alcohol but angels have wings G C G When the roll is called up yonder all you sinners are gonna see C G E7 A7 D7 G That heaven ain't a honky tonk and them pearly gates don't swing
C G Well all alone in Birmingham I'm down on my knees A7 D7 Wishing I had momma's hand a holding on to me G C G Well I been drinking all my life and I haven't quenched the thirst C E7 A7 D7 G For the kind of peace I saw him find at the little sidewalk church
C G E7 A7 D7 G Heaven ain't a honky tonk and them pearly gates don't swing
