"You Can't Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl" lyrics - BROOKS & DUNN

"You Can't Take The Honky Tonk Out Of The Girl"

Connie came back for her second cousin's wedding
First time she'd been home in a year or two
Just in time for the rehearsal dinner
That crazy Connie wasn't wearing any shoes

She lives in L.A. she flies to New York City
That woman's been around the world
You can take the girl out of the honky tonk
But you can't take the honky tonk, take the honky tonk, out of the girl
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

That dinner broke up at around 11:30
The boys went out to do what boys do
Connie said hey girls let's huddle up
Around something 'bout a hundred proof


Well at nine a.m. out in front of that church
People goin' nuts looking for the groom
Somebody says hey by the way where's Connie
She's run off with that boy to Cancun
