Honky Tonk Crazy
Recorded by Gene Watson  [3/4 time]
written by Harland Howard and Ron Peterson

C                             F             D7
Woman you’d better get up and run while you can
      G7                           C
Don’t waste your sweet time loving me
                              F                D7
You’re starting to think that I’m your kind of man
    G7                               C
But there’s a danger in me you can’t see

F                A7         D7
I’ve always been honky tonk crazy
F                  G7        C
I’m someone that’s best left alone
F                A7         D7
Cause when I get honky tonk crazy
F           G7          C
I only feel right doing wrong

                                F         D7
I’ll take you and make you love smoky old bars
      G7                        C
Cheap whiskey and a sad country song
                                 F        D7
Till there’s nothing left of the lady you are
    G7                           C
And then like your pride I’ll be gone

Repeat #2

F              A7         D7
Yes when I get honky tonk crazy
F           G7          C
I only feel right doing wrong
