Lyrics

I’ve honky tonked most all my life
My day begins at the end of night
I stay up late it don’t bother me
The darker the night the darker the night
The better I see.

The lights I love are the lights of town
I thank the Lord above when the sun goes down
I find a shady spot and that’s where I’ll be
The darker the night the darker the night
The better I see.
(Last time ending)
You heard me right the darker the night
The better I see.

My hit parade has about three chords
but I guarantee that ya won’t get bored
It starts getting’ good about a quarter til 3
The darker the night the darker the night
The better I see.

I rest my case at the break of day
What some call work brother I call play
Cause I once was blind but now I’m free
The darker the night the darker the night
The better I see.
