Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American country music singer. Her 1952 hit recording, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels", made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts, and turned her into the first female country star. Her Top 10 hits continued until the mid-1960s, inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s. more »

The lights are low and the jukebox is loud
As we make the rounds among the wild unruly crowd
One honky tonk to another where old friends meet
Got me this name Queen of Honky Tonk Street

Queen of Honky Tonk Street that's next to jukebox lane
You've gave me the name taught me how to play the game
Don't point your finger at me men should understand
That a honky tonk woman's good as a honky tonk man

The slurs at honky tonk angel will they ever end
Most women go honky tonkin' just to please their men
If we had stayed at home away from night life beat
I wouldn't have the name Queen of Honky Tonk Street
Queen of Honky Tonk Street...
