Ashley Monroe – Hank's Cadillac lyrics

Chorus: I'd have kept him up all night
I wouldn't let him close his eyes
Made him sing "I Saw the Light"
'Til he sobered up again
I'd have kept his coffee strong
Oh I could have kept him hangin' on
If I'd have been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

Gotta be in Ohio by tomorrow night
Hank you gotta get up on that stage
You can't let all those good people down
It just ain't right
To book a show
And not show up to play


When his hands started tremblin' and his body turnin' cold
And death started tuggin' at his soul
I'd of found one of his songs playin' on that am radio
Held him tight and begged him not to go
I'd have held him tight and begged him not to go


He'd have lived to play more songs
Oh, I could have kept him hangin' on
If I'd have been in the back of Hank's Cadillac
