It doesn't matter who you are, we're all trying to get on,
Averyone in his own way, from the day that we are borne,
Singles for that ballroom queen that I heard about,
Who gets the best of the clientele and lets them make her out.
Well it's alright baby, you changed your life and how,
You used to be a honky tonk sister, but you're a lady now
It seemed like love at first sight, I was completely mesmerised,
When she turned 'round in that bar, there was fire in her eyes,
Thought my search was over now, found that special girl at last,
So I took her home with me, I like the lady's class
(Chorus & solo)
I had all my tomorrows planned, but how long can it be,
Inside we're all honky tonks as far as I can see,
I woke up but she was gone, too late I realised
That the lady used me as a stepping stone as she reached for the sky.
