When I get off of work on Friday, after working like a dog all week
I go to meet the boys for a cold one, at a little joint up the street
They got a jukebox in the corner, full of old country tunes
Feed it five dollars worth of quarters, is the first thing I always do

'Cause I need a little twang
A little hillbilly bending on some guitar strings
Some peddle steel whining like a whistle of an old freight train
To get that foot stompin' honkey tonkin' feeling going through my veins
I need a little twang, twang, twang

Well, I like a lot of kinds of music
I try to keep an open mind
Depending on the mood to strike me
If I'm gonna stay 'till closing time
So when I wanna lift my spirits to get me feeling worth a dang
I know I'm gonna have to hear it
'Cause I gotta have some Hank to hang

'Cause I need a little twang
A little hillbilly bending on some guitar strings
Some peddle steel whining like a whistle of an old freight train
To get that foot stompin' honkey tonkin' feeling going through my veins
I need a little twang

I need a little twang
A little hillbilly bending on some guitar strings
Some peddle steel whining like a whistle of an old freight train
To get that foot stompin' honkey tonkin' feeling going through my veins
I need a little twang, twang, twang
I need a little twang, twang, twang.
