Lyrics

Ballad Of Hank Williams
 
My heart went to music
My heart went to drink
My soul, straight to music
Kept me here in hard times I think  
 
And I think I speak the gospel
When I tell you this truth:
That if Jesus wore my shoes
He'd reach for the bottle too
 
Long is the night
Proud is the curtain call
In the brightest light
Dark are the shadows that fall  
 
And that Lord's been a knockin'
He's come to grant me my wish
Because there are things worse than dying
When you've been living like this  
 
Long is the night
Proud is the curtain call
In the brightest light
Dark are the shadows that fall  
 
There's a song in everyone
Mama told me when I was young
Why was mine so short?
Hell mama, where are you now?  
 
When that sun takes its bow
Oh Lord, lay my head down
In the back seat of a Caddy
With those wheels still spinnin' round
With those wheels still spinnin' round
