Story

My mama really did rock me to sleep with the sound of trains. She also taught me to yodel. Thanks, mom.

Lyrics

I was born to Honky-Tonk

'Cause I like cattin' around

I love to hear a steel guitar

And Hank's high, lonesome sound

 

My mama rocked her baby

By the railroad track

To the rollin' of a late-night train

Oh, how it moaned my lullaby

To the rhythm of the fallin' rain

YODEL

 

I was born to Honky-Tonk

I love those Honky-Tonk gals

I like to drink my liquor

Play my guitar

With some of my worthless pals

 

I can yodel like a cat

On a hot tin roof

Never give me water

Make it 90 proof

I'm having a ball, and that's the truth

'Cause I was born to Honky-Tonk

YODEL

 

I was born to Honky-Tonk

'Cause I like cattin' around

I love to hear a flat-picked guitar

With that Johnny Russell sound

My mama rocked her baby

By the railroad track

To the rollin' of a late-night train

Oh, how it moaned my lullaby

To the rhythm of the fallin' rain

YODEL
