The Rolling Stones - Honky Tonk Women

Αγγλικά

Honky Tonk Women

I met a gin-soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis,
She tried to take me upstairs for a ride.
She had to heave me right across her shoulder
Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind!
 
It's the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues!
 
I laid a divorcée in New York City,
I had to put up some kind of a fight.
The lady then she covered me with roses,
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind!
 
It's the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues!
 
(yeah!) it's the honky tonk women.
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues!
 
(yeah!) it's the honky tonk women.
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues!

There are errors in these lyrics, starting with the title. Unfortunately, the person who "owns" this page has not been on the site in nearly 2 years so I suppose I'll have to rely on a kind Moderator who may happen upon this comment & who will fix this up. So here are the corrected lyrics:

All right!

It's the honky tonk women,
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues!

It's the honky tonk women,
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues!

If you doubt me, here's a video showing the lyrics:

You did pay strict attention to the lyrics in this video, right? If you did, you'll notice that here & there my lyrics do differ from the lyrics shown (yes, there are lyrics shown in this video). But if you also listen to the song, you'll agree that my lyrics match what Mick is actually singing. The audio in this video is, best I can tell, the original studio recording of the song.

Just for variety, here's a live performance version of the song. There's dozens to choose from on YouTube but I rather like this one.
