Lyrics I WON'T STAY HOME
AND CRY TONIGHT
LIKE ALL THE TIMES
BEFORE,
I'VE JUST LEARNED
THAT I DON'T REALLY
NEED YOU ANYMORE.
I'VE FOUND A LITTLE PLACE
DOWNTOWN
WHERE GUYS LIKE ME
CAN GO.
AND THEY'VE GOT
BRIGHT LIGHTS AND COUNTRY MUSIC,
A BOTTLE AND A GLASS.
SOON I'LL BE FORGETTING
THAT THERE EVER WAS A PAST.
AND WHEN EV'RYBODY ASKS ME
WHAT MADE ME FORGET SO FAST,
I'LL SAY
BRIGHT LIGHTS AND COUNTRY MUSIC.

A TABLE BY THE BANDSTAND,
A BOTTLE FILLED WITH WINE,
HONKY TONKS WERE MADE
FOR MEN
WITH WOMEN ON THEIR MIND.
NOTHIN' ELSE CAN TAKE AWAY
THIS LONELINESS OF MINE
QUITE LIKE
BRIGHT LIGHTS AND COUNTRY MUSIC,
A BOTTLE AND A GLASS.
SOON I'LL BE FORGETTING
THAT THERE EVER WAS A PAST.
AND WHEN EV'RYBODY ASKS ME
WHAT MADE ME FORGET SO FAST,
I'LL SAY
BRIGHT LIGHTS AND COUNTRY MUSIC.
