The Bluesman
Hank Williams Jr.
He?s just a singer, a natural born guitar ringer,
Kind of a clinger to sad old songs,
he?s not a walk behinder, he?s a new note finder.
But his names a reminder of a blues man that?s already gone.
So he started drinkin?, took some things that messed up his thinkin?,
he was sure sinkin? when she came along.
He was alone in the spot light, not too much left in sight,
She changed all that one night when she sang him this song?

Hey baby I love you, Hey baby I need you,
Hey baby you ain?t got to prove to me you?re some kind of macho man
You?ve wasted so much of your life, runnin? through the dark nights
Let me shine a little love light, down on that blues man.

He got so sick from speedin?, all the things they said he was needin?
If he was to keep on pleasin? all of his fans
He got cuffed on dirt roads, he got sued over no shows
She came an took all that old load down off that old blues man And he sang?

Hey baby I love you too, Hey baby I need you
Hey baby I do get tired of this travelin? band
Am I?m over forty years old now, nights would be cold now
If you hadn?t stuck it out with this blues man.
He?s over forty years old now, nights would be so cold now,
If she hadn?t hung around with that blues man.
