Lyrics:

Bye bye baby I’m leavingYou can keep your mansion and your moneyYour boat and your Benz and your uptown friendsAnd your country club that ain’t really countryI need a little down home lovin’And a man ain’t gonna get it up hereYeah I’ll find what I want in a honky tonkI like girls that drink beer
You bought me a black tie suit and I ain’t wearin’ itCan’t be seen in that thing in my LariatAin’t goin’ down to the ball in your chariotThis high rise life just ain’t for me
Bye bye baby I’m leavingNow you can keep your mansion and your moneyYour boat and your Benz and your uptown friendsAnd your country club that ain’t really countryI need a little down home lovin’And a man ain’t gonna get it up hereHey I’ll find what I want in a honky tonkI like girls that drink beer
There’s a two lane black tap road and I’ma hittin’ itSkynard back song, let her fly just a-gettin’ itFind me a little hot spot and just sit in itGive me a mug of that ice cold brewGet me a girl that’s got one too
Bye bye baby I’m leavingYou can keep your mansion and your moneyYour boat and your Benz and your uptown friendsAnd your country club that ain’t really countryI need a little down home lovin’And a man ain’t gonna get it up hereHey I’ll find what I want in a honky tonkI like girls that drink beer
Hey I need a little down home lovin’And a man ain’t gonna get it up hereHey I’ll find what I want in a honky tonkI like girls that drink beerYeah I’ll find what I want in a honky tonkI like girls that drink beer
