Hank Williams Iii – If You Can't Help Your Own lyrics

I was raised by myself down in Arkansas
My family had some rich folks' but they'd never call
If they wanna be that way, well that's fine with me
'Cause I ain't got a thing to say to a man filled with greed

Well, if you can't even help your own
Well, my friend one day you're gonna be all alone

Well, I'm real down to earth and I know just how it hurts
To be in a bind, just tryin' to stay alive
Well, I can drink and I can cuss and I can be pretty doggone tough
I like to stay up all night just to see that big sun rise and light up my life

You better keep your eyes on what's goin' on
With the government today 'cause there doin' us wrong
They took the farm away from my poor grand dad
And I never will forgive them for doin' that

Well, if you can't even help your own
Well, my friend one day you're gonna be all alone
Well, if you can't even help your own
Well, my friend one day you're gonna be all alone
