Honky Tonk Masquerade is the second album by country singer-songwriter Joe Ely, released in 1978. Ely's second album has been highly regarded by critics around the world. It was included in the 2005 book, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Writer Steve Pond places the album at number 40 on Rolling Stone's list of "50 Essential Albums of the 70s", calling it "the decade's most sure-footed country-rock collaboration"

As strong as Joe Ely's self-titled solo debut was, his second album, 1978's Honky Tonk Masquerade, actually managed to top it, and the album remains one of the great creative triumphs of the Texas singer/songwriter community, as well as a high-water mark in Ely's career

Honky Tonk Masquerade Lyrics: You sure look fine tonight, in the beer sign light, Why did you seem surprised when I saw through your disguise, All your friends were there and no one had a care, They all just. You sure look fine tonight, they're turning out the lights Why did you hold my sleeve when I said I had to leave I hoped it never showed, but that's the way it goes As the lights begin to fade on this Honky Tonk Masquerade.

Of the three Flatlanders, Joe Ely was the youngest and the most rock-oriented. His style crystallized on 1978’s Honky Tonk Masquerade. Though it was recorded with producer Chip Young at his studio in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the core band consists of Ely’s longtime Lubbock pals: Steve Keeton on drums, Gregg Wright on bass, Jesse Taylor on guitar and the incomparable Lloyd Maines on pedal steel. It sounds like true country, which is to say, this music couldn’t have come from a city  . The album’s great accomplishment might be Butch Hancock’s Boxcars, to which Ely applies bongos and fuzzy layers of steel guitar. It sounds incongruous, but not even Woody Guthrie alone with his acoustic could conjure a more chilling ghost story.
