Emmylou Harris – Hank & Lefty lyrics

Daddy had a 1949 ford
When I was just about ten years old
We would listen to hank and lefty on the radio
Why don't you love like you used to do
And just look what thoughs will do
Old hank and lefty raised my country soul

Now I learned how to sing and shuffle my shoes
Listin to han sing the lovesick blues
We never met ol hank but we was awful close
Cut my teeth on always late
And I love you a thousand ways
Ol hank and lefty raised my country soul


Daddy said the hair on his neck would crawl
When old hank sang about the light he saw
Hank sure put a whole lot of heart in the songs he wrote
Everytime daddy got a little bit tight
Mom & dad's waltz would make him cry
Old hank and lefty raised my country soul

(repeat chours)

Old hank and lefty raised my country soul
Old hank and lefty raised my country soul
