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

Repeat #3

C G E7 A7 D7 G
Heaven ain't a honky tonk and them pearly gates don't swing
