Hank Williams Iii – I Don't Know lyrics

I might get drunk and rob a bank,
shoot my car if it don't crank
Try to raise a little Cain,
mess the walls up with some paint
Might even join a rodeo,
ride my horse to Buffalo,
change my name to Bill -
I don't think I ever will
But I can't promise you I won't
Some people do, some people don't
Some people win, some people lose
Some people never get to choose
All you can do is the best you can
and hope things work out like you plan
I plan to stay but I might go
I can't say cause I don't know.
(Instrumental break)
I might become the president
and tell the world I'm heaven sent
Take up drinking cold iced tea,
quit watching women and tv
Might even smoke those cigarettes,
play my guitar like Dickey Betts
Get in miss Shania's pants -
I don't think I've got a chance
But I ain't sayin' I won't try
to do it all before I die
I just might win, but if I lose,
well I'll just blame it on the booze
Cause I'm just doin the best I can,
and I hope ya understand
I plan to stay, but I might go
and if I do, I told you so
