Kinky Friedman – Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way ? lyrics

Lord it's the same old tune
Fiddle and guitar.
Where do we take it from here?
Rhinestone suits and new shiny cars;
It's been the same way for years.
We need a change.

Somebody told me when I came to Nashville,
"Son you finally got it made."
Old Hank made it here, and we're all sure that you will.
But I don't think Hank done it this a'way.
(Naw) I don't think Hank done it this a'way.

Ten years on the road
Makin' one night stands
Speedin' my young life away
Tell me one more time
Just so's I'll understand
Are you sure Hank done it this a'way?
Did Old Hank really do it this a'way?

Lord I've seen the world with a five piece band
Lookin' at the back side of me.
Singin' my songs and one of his now and then,
But I don't think Hank done 'em this a'way.
(Naw) I don't think Hank done 'em this a'way.
[Take it home]
