[D] From Oak Hill, West Virginia, [G] New Year's morning
Came a [D] report that caused millions to bow their [A7] heads
Noone [D] wanted to believe it, [G] many wept with sadness
For the [D] news told the [A7] world, Hank Williams was [D] dead.
[D] Hank left love songs for lovers, [G] blues for the weary ones
Beautiful [D] hymns, that make the teardrops [A7] start
[D] Gone, but not forgotten, [G] time won't dim his memory
Hank [D] Williams Will Live For-[A7] ever, in people's [D] hearts.
Friends and loved ones by the thousands, passed his casket in sorrow
Many paid their last respect, with tear-stained face
The world lost a great composer, the world lost a great singer
When hank williams, went to his resting place.
