I'm sittin' in Knoxville courthouse ain't got a thing to do
Now this all started in a honky tonk just the other side of town
She lit up a cigarette and turned around
I answered Hank and I walked to the jukebox droppin' a dime
Well we danced for five or ten minutes and I held her close to me
Whispered in my ears I said yes siree
And there's a room for two love is about to take place
I said what the hell is this and another man and woman come in
Said thank God you're here he tried to hurt me mama
So that's why I'm in Knoxville courthouse and the judge passed sentence on me
Lord I can't believe this is happened to me
Just remember under that woman's breast may beat the heart of a child
This story happened a lot that's true
