She moved up to the city
 Became a big time fashion designer
All them big shots wined and dined her
In those fancy restaurants 
She cam back to our hometown  Pulled up in a brand new Lexus  Looks like our little girl from Texas 
Had joined the upper echelon

And she walked through the door
In her jeans and her boots  Stepped right back
Into her tonkin' roots 
'Neath the neon lights 
We raised the roof
Way into the night 
Now you can take the girl out of the honky tonk
Into that uptown world
But she's still my little good timin', beer drinkin', pool shootin'
Honk tonk girl

Once upon another time
 Before she moved to the Big Apple  Wedding bells were gonna ring in a country chapel
For me and my down-home debutante 
Said she missed what we had
And though she made a darn good livin'
 Money couldn't buy what she'd been missin'
Yeah, that girl knows what she wants 

And she walked through the door
In her jeans and her boots  Stepped right back
Into her tonkin' roots 
'Neath the neon lights 
We raised the roof
Way into the night 
Now you can take the girl out of the honky tonk
Into that uptown world
But she's still my little good timin', beer drinkin', pool shootin'
Honk tonk girl

Well, you can take the girl out of the honky tonk
Into that uptown world
But she's still my little good timin', beer drinkin', pool shootin'
Honk tonk girl
Honk tonk girl
