I just came in here to have some whiskey and beer
And say howdy to you all
You all know me, it's Hank Williams, Jr, you see
Hat and shades, beard and all
Now I have heard, mmm hmm, I've gotten the word
About all these silly imposters runnin around
Let me tell you somethin now they ain't real
They got no scars, they got no feel
Why they don't know nothin about whiskey bent and hellbound
Now I'm looking for a lover and I'm looking for some fun
My name is Bocephus
I'm a son of a gun

Some of us are born with it, some of us don't ever, ever get it
Thank God I'm a guitar man, and it's true I love the money
And it's true I love all the honeys
But the thing I really love is to get down with the band

Not everybody loves me
But those that do will fight
Right to the end they're guitar friends
From legendary Saturday Nights
I learned something from Lynyrd Skynyrd
From my Daddy and Ernest Tubb too
I do country rock, I do blues
Now I'm looking for a lover
And I'm going to have some fun
Oh, my name is Bocephus
And I'm a son of a gun

Some of us are born with it
Some of em don't ever, ever get it
Thank God I'm a guitar man
Oh, it's true I love the money
And I really, really love the honeys
But the thing I really love is to get down with the band
