I'm sittin' in Knoxville courthouse ain't got a thing to do
I don't wanna go to the movies couldn't if I wanted to I'm on trial for lovin' you
Now this all started in a honky tonk just the other side of town
A girl come in took a stool by me ordered gin and drank it down
She lit up a cigarette and turned around
Well she said my name is Jeannie and asked me what was mine
I answered Hank and I walked to the jukebox droppin' a dime
I looked at her short dress low neck line
Well we danced for five or ten minutes and I held her close to me
Kissed her lips and squeezed her hips and judged about twenty three
Whispered in my ears I said yes siree
Now the scene is a little motel out on the state highway
And there's a room for two love is about to take place
And a state trooper breaks down the door shines a flash light in my face
I said what the hell is this and another man and woman come in
