Subject: Honky Tonk Truth  by Brooks & Dunn
Album: The Greatest Hits Collection
Written by: Ronnie Dunn\Kim Williams\Lonnie Wilson
Note:  This song has a few sliding chords but it's hard to show that on paper.  So when you chords like G# G that is a sliding chord sequence.  To be played fast. OPEN is to strum the
strings with no strings held down.  Listen to the record.

    HONKY TONK TRUTH    Brooks & Dunn

B                                                    F#
I'm the life of the party, baby, since you said good-bye
F#                                           B
Just ask old Joe, He knows, I'm here every night
B                                                      F#
And that good old boy in the mirror looking around for you
F#
It ain't me
F#                          B
And that's the honky tonk truth.

CHORUS:
B                 Bb   G#
That's the honky tonk truth cross my broken heart
G          F#                                            B
I put my right hand here on this beer And swear on this bar
Bb OPEN   G#
I ain't thinking, I ain't drinking, I ain't crying
                     C#   C B  n.c.              F#
I ain't moaning the blues      I wouldn't lie to you
                            B
Now that's the honky tonk truth

Lead

B                                                  F#
Don't think I'll come crawling back cause I don't miss you
F#
If you walked up and puckered up, girl
                      B
I wouldn't bother to kiss you
B
And that washed up, broken down fool
                      F#
Hanging out on that stool Well it ain't me
                           B
Now that's the honky tonk truth.


chorus, chorus, instrumental vamp to end.
