Hank Williams Jr. – Eyes Of Waylon lyrics

When it comes to real rounders, there's only one
That was better than I was at havin' some fun
Now it's true he shows grey in his beard
Does that mean he's history, or is he a pillar and a peer
This music called country, somethin' we all make
No, it didn't just happen cause of the latest rage
Soon he was the biggest thing to come along in Nashville in those days
He sang his song called "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way"
I don't know if he did or not but I sure know what I saw
The 1st triple platinum in that town was hanging on his wall
Radio will play him until the end of time
Because he's a real legend not the phony kind

And I looked in the eyes of Waylon
And there I saw things that I'd never seen before
I saw a father and a brother and a friend
I saw the nights we spent while out on the road
It's not the money, it's not the fame, it's not the ladies
And the eyes of Waylon just told me so
Yes, I looked in the eyes of Waylon
There I learned things that I better know
And if I doubted there is a hillbilly heaven
The eyes of Waylon just told me so

And if I doubted there is a hillbilly heaven
The eyes of old Waylon just told me so
