Juke Box Blues

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

I walked into a honky tonky just the other day
I dropped a nickel in a juke box just to hear it play
I didn’t have no tune in mind, I didn’t wait to choose
I just dropped a nickel in the slot and I played the juke box blues

There’s a guy in there with an old tin horn and a feller on an old banjo
And the man on the fiddle he wasn’t no slouch
He could really drag that bow

Well, the man on the fiddle, he must have got tired
I didn’t hear him say, cause he cut loose on the steel guitar
And the juke box ran away

Then I heard something going strong
It must have been a drum
It gave that song a solid beat, boy, he was going some

I walked into a honky tonky just the other day
I dropped a nickel in a juke box just to hear it play
I didn’t have no tune in mind I didn’t wait to choose
I just dropped a nickel in the slot and I played the juke box blues

I’ve played a lot of juke boxes, most everyone in town
But that’s the first tune I ever heard
That could make one dance around

Play the jukebox blues
Such a rhythm I’ve never heard
I danced out both of my shoes
