HERE'S TO HANK
Recorded by Stonewall Jackson
Writer: Stonewall Jackson
[D] Once lived a man that was an inspi-[A7]ration
To country music, to the entire [D] nation
I used his songs to learn upon, there's [D7] many friends to [G] thank
Like [A7] Ernest Tubb, or George D. Hayes, Wes Rose and here's to [D] Hank.
I used to sit around at night, with my old beat-up guitar
And I'd wonder how it felt to be, a country music singing star
I've heard Hank Williams many times, till I learned his songs by heart
They've got me jobs when I was broke, and that helped me to get my start.
As God looks down on me I hope, that He's pleased, I've worked so hard
Yes, it true a man can sleep at night, that has worked until he's tired
Success has smiled down on my head, and to all, my sincere thanks
E.T., Wes Rose, George D. Hayes, has gone, but here's to Hank.
I'M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY.
