“Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn Me Loose” Lyrics

Well I’m back again for another night
Of trying to break free from the sadness I can’t lay to rest
This old honky-tonk sure does feel like home
And the music and the laughter seem to soothe my loneliness

Chorus:
So turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose
From the memory that’s driving me lonely, crazy and blue
It helps me forget her so the louder the better
Hey mister, turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose

Now if a tear should fall, if I should whisper her name
To some stranger I’m holdin’ while we’re dancing’ to an old Buck Owens’ song
I know she won’t mind, she won’t even know
‘Cause she’ll be dancing with a memory crying teardrops of her own

Chorus:
So turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose
From the memory that’s driving me lonely, crazy and blue
It helps me forget her so the louder the better
Hey mister, turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose

Chorus:
So turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose
From the memory that’s driving me lonely, crazy and blue
It helps me forget her so the louder the better
Hey mister, turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose
Yeah mister, turn it on, turn it up, turn me loose
