Ricky Skaggs

 

<CHORUS>

C                                                                  G

Honey, honey, honey won't you open that door,

This is your sweet daddy, don't you love me no more,

It's cold outside, let me sleep on the floor,

                                             C

Honey won't you open that door.

1. I honky-tonked around Dallas, I got in a poker game,

2. I went right down to see old Bob, I thought he was my friend,

 

     F                                          C           D7                                G

1. Somebody must-a been a cheatin', I lost everything but my name,

2. The landlord said that Bob's not here, The police done hauled him in,

 

                C                                               C7                       F

1. Well I walked half way to Memphis, I finally got back home,

2. I ran right back to little honey's house, I got me a rockin' chair,

 

     F                                    C                            D                     G                 C

1. But I'd been better off where I was, 'Cause here's where things went wrong.

2. Now Honey if you don't open that door, I'm gonna rock on away from here.
