Sittin' on a country post, gravied like a country roast,
Baby's momma left me sweatin' on the hot back roads.
Fell back, back slap, had a little heart attack,
Girl took my money away.

Back up babe, can't be saved, 80 proof, hell's way,
Moon whoops my ass, I'm a livin' low class.
Leather skin, weathered heart, can't fix what I didn't start,
All done doin' time.

chorus
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake. whoo!
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (Back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake.

Woke up on a broken spoke, out of stash, no toke,
Hurtin' from the curtain lettin' in that sun,
Never seen this shade of blue, how'd I get this new tattoo?
At least I spelled the name right.

I like my moonshine valentine, helps me to erase my mind.
At least she's not too young for me.
Chasin' down a midnight train, cheap lovin' in my veins,
Is how I got this way.

repeat chorus
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake. whoo!
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (Back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake.

repeat chorus
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake. whoo!
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (Back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake, whoo.

Won't sing, can't dance, don't expect no romance,
You gets what you see,
Momma said duck tight, poppa said I'm not right,
A no-count fool is what I be.

Livin' on nine lives, drowning in my alibis,
I'm a twister gone wild,
Can't afford to buy a break, can't afford a minute steak,
Good lord, what happened to me?

repeat chorus
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake. whoo!
I'm a honky tonk mistake, (Back up babe),
Honky tonk mistake.
