    Lyrics

    She was a honky tonker and he was a family man
    And she showed him her gold teeth when he'd hold her little hand
    And they met out on the highway at the Paradise Motel lounge
    On Saturday nights, when things weren't right
    Between him and his wife in town

    They're just another couple on a high plains jamboree
    Playing out them sad songs, they understand
    Just another couple making juke box memories
    Walking into troubles hand in hand

    She weren't no maid of cotton and he weren't no hell of a man
    So they must have loved each other like only the lonely can
    'Cause they slow-danced through the neon like a sorrow through a song
    Then they carried the tune to the motel room
    And they played it all night long

    They're just another couple on a high plains jamboree
    Playing out them sad songs, they understand
    Yeah, just another couple making juke box memories
    Walking into troubles hand in hand
    I said, they walking into troubles hand in hand
