Brooks & Dunn – You Can’t Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl

Nog een straf nummer van Brooks & Dunn die er weer stevig invliegen. Het nummer ‘You Can’t Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl’ was de derde single van hun album ‘Red Dirt Road’ (2003) en heeft een sterk  ‘Rolling Stones-tintje’. in 2006 traden ze zelfs met de Rolling Stones op in Omaha.

Songtekst :

Yeah Connie came back for her second cousin’s wedding
First time she’d been home in a year or two
Just in time for the rehearsal dinner
That crazy Connie wasn’t wearing any shoes

Yeah She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman’s been around the world
You can take the girl out of the honky tonk
But you can’t take the honky tonk, take the honky tonk
Out of the girl.

Well that dinner broke up at around 11:30
Them boys went off to do what boys do
Connie said “hey girls let’s huddle up”
Around something about a hundred proof

She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman’s been around the world
You can take the girl out of the honky tonk
But you can’t take the honky tonk, take the honky tonk
Out of the girl.

Well at nine a.m. out in front of the church
People going nuts looking for the groom
Somebody says “Hey by the way where’s Connie”
She’s run off with that boy to Cancun

Yeah She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman’s been around the world
You can take the girl out of the honky tonk
But you can’t take the honky tonk, take the honky tonk
Out of the girl.
