Randy Travis Performs "Honky Tonk Moon" For Telethon (LIVE 1988) (WATCH)

Randy travis Songs | Randy Travis Performs

During a Jerry Lewis Telethon in 1988, Randy Travis performed his hit song "Honky Tonk Moon"

The song was written by Dennis O'Rourke and was released in 1988 as the lead single off of Travis' Old 8x10 Album. It hit #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. "Honky Tonk Moon" is a slow and easy song that describes an evening spent between a man and woman at a honky tonk. 

Travis' performance is perfection. His deep, resonating voice is smooth and is like silk to the ears, exactly how this sort of melody and theme should be.


Dirt road in the twilight, woods so cool and dark.
Up ahead pale neon, somewhere a dog barks,
Honky-tonk moon, keeps shining on my baby and me

Breaking up the pool balls, chalking up the cues
Juke box pumping softly, lazy summer blues
Honky-tonk moon, keeps shining on my ba-by and me

Through the blue smoky haze, all through the haze
Trouble seems to melt away...
My heart's on a roll, I'm easy in my soul
There's no hurry, no worry, things are goin' my way

My arms around my baby, shufflin' on the floor
Cigarettes and saw-dust, squeaky old screen door.
Honk- Tonk Moon, keeps shinin on my baby and me.

Outside the dark is falling, stars are twinkling bright
That old Hoot Owl is calling, every-things all right

Honky Tonk Moon, keeps shinin on my baby and me.
Honky Tonk Moon, keeps shinin on my baby and me.
