Lyrics

Don’t let me stand in the way

Of you all having fun

Everybody looks the same

Can’t tell you from any one

You can clap hands in rhythm

And dance in one straight line

Me, I’m stumbling with the boys

Beneath the neon sign

 

If Hank ain’t on the bandstand

Buck Owens ain’t on the box

Close Up the Honky Tonks      

Tighten down the locks

 

Bartender, pour another

Because tonight I’m getting totaled

Hey, what good is country music

Without the yodel

 

Yodel

 

No you don’t want to change at all

Not even just a little

You bury that old steel guitar

Forget about the fiddle

And that high lonesome sound

It what you don’t want to hear

You want all the bubbles

But me, I’ll take the beer

 

If Hank ain’t on the bandstand

And the Hag ain’t on the box

Lord, I got the Workin’ Man Blues   

On the Big City streets I walk

 

Bartender, pour another

Because tonight I’m getting totaled

Hey, what good is country music

Without the yodel

 

Yodel
