Old Habits

Hank Williams Jr

© Bocephus Music, BMI

I kicked the habit of smoking back sometime ago
And I tried the hard stuff but I had to let all that go
But the toughest thing I ever gave up was today
Cause old habits like you are hard to break

I used Lifesavers to help me get off cigarettes
But you know for your love I ain't found no Lifesavers yet
And I've gone cold turkey cause there's not even one kiss a day
And old habits like you are hard to break

Old habits like you are hard to break
Love with someone new is so hard to make
I had grown so used to you and all of your ways
And old habits like you are hard to break

Dinosaur

Bob Corbin - Hank Williams Jr

© Bocephus Music, BMI

Hey man them ain't high heeled sneakers
And they sure don't look like cowboy boots
And that ain't rock and roll you're playin'
And it sure ain't country or rhythm and blues

Your singing a song about making love to your drummer
Well gay guitar pickers don't turn me on
And we don't all get into Donna Summers
Do you happen to know any old Hank Williams songs

Cause you see I'm a dinosaur
I should have died out a long time before
Have pity on a dinosaur
Hand me my hat excuse me man but where's the door

Used to be I had a lot of fun in this old hangout
We'd get stoned at the jukebox and stay out of fights
Now and then light a little smoke in the truck out back
Ah then a little old Jim Beam and we'd get right

And you know these flashing lights sure make me dizzy
And this disco's very strange to my ears
It looks like they've turned the longhorn into a spaceship
And I'll be leaving just a soon as I finish this beer

Cause you see I'm a dinosaur
Should have died out a long time before
There's a whole lot of dinosaurs
Give us our hats excuse me man but where's the door
Get us our hat excuse me man where's the door

Kaw-Liga

Hank Williams - Fred Rose

© Milene Music, ASCAP

Kaw-Liga was a wooden Indian standin' over by the door
Fell in love with a Choctaw maid over in a Georgia store
Kaw-Liga oooh standin' there and don't never let it show
She don't never answer yes or no

He always wore his Sunday feathers and carried this old black hawk
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped someday he'd talk
Kaw-Liga oooh standin' there and don't never show a sign
Cause his heart is made of knotty pine

Poor ol' Kaw-Liga you ain't never got a kiss
Poor ol' Kaw-Liga you don't know what ya missed
Is it any wonder that your face is red
Kaw-Liga you poor ol' wooden head

Kaw-Liga was a lonely Indian never went nowhere
Heart was set on a Choctaw maiden with long black hair
Kaw-Liga oooh standin' there and don't never show a sign
Cause his heart is made of knotty pine

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid
Took her oh so far away and ol' Kaw-Liga stayed
Kaw-Liga oooh standin' there as lonesome as can be
Oh just wishin' he was still an ol' pine tree

Poor ol' Kaw-Liga you just ain't never had no kissin'...

Here I Am Fallin' Again

Hank Williams - Fred Rose

© Milene Music, ASCAP

Here I am fallin' again
In places I've already been
I sure didn't plan it and I don't understand it
But here I am fallin' again

Here I am lyin' again
Makin' up places that I've never been
I thought I was through with these heartbreaking blues
But here I am lyin' again

Why don't a man ever take
Time to think what is at stake
Is it the danger or the pleasurable stranger
But those are the chances he'll take

I'd hate to come face to face
With her and her at the same place
Cause it will be hell if I have to tell her
Someone has taken her place
[ guitar ]
I had a beautiful wife
She found it all out one night
And the pleasurable stranger Lord I didn't change her
And I lost it all this time

So here I am cryin' again
And callin' for sympathy from my old friend
He once loved her and she once loved him
And here I am cryin' again

Blues Man

Hank Williams Jr

© Bocephus Music, BMI

I'm just a singer a natural born guitar ringer
Kind of an old clinger to sad old songs
I'm not a walk behinder I'm a new note finder
But my names a reminder of a blues man that's already gone

So I started drinkin' took things that messed up my thinkin'
I was sure sinkin' when you came along
I was alone in the hot lights not too much left inside
But she changed all that in one night when she sang me this song

Hey baby I love you hey baby I need you
Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me you're some kind of macho man
You wasted so much of your life runnin' through the dark nights
Let me shine some love light down on the blues man

I got so sick from speedin' all the stuff they said I was needin'
If I was to keep pleasin' all of my fans
I got cuffed on dirt roads I got sued over no-shows
But you came and took all that old load down off this blues man

Hey baby I love you too hey baby I need you
Hey baby I do get tired of this travelin' band
I'm thirty years old now nights would be cold now
If you hadn't have stuck it out with this blues man

I'm thirty years old now nights sure would be cold now
If you hadn't hung around with this blues man

All In Alabama

Hank Williams Jr

© Bocephus Music, BMI

I just had to show 'em I didn't need 'em
And so I headed out west to see some old friends of mine
I thought if I'd climb up old Ajax Mountain
Maybe that would help me get it all off my mind

I made it up to the top picked out a clear spot
I thought a whole lot about the rest of my life
I had no idea then soon it would nearly end
Up on this mountainside I would nearly die

And they're all in Alabama
And they're all in Dixieland
God I'm dying here in Montana please Lord
Just wanna go back to hold her hand
Just let me get back to my old homeland

They said I'd never sing again I learned a lot about my friends
Cause when you're shot down and out you don't get many calls
But I saw some tears in some eyes soon my poor old mother would die
And I nearly lost it all when I lost my grandpa

But you can find us all in Alabama
Yeah we're all down in dixieland
I didn't die out in Montana no Lord
You let me get back to my own homeland
And I'm gonna hold on to her hand

I've done a whole lot of searching a whole lot of hurtin'
Before I finally found my road in life
You got to say things you wanna say go on and do things your own way
And you can climb any old mountain once you make up your mind

And I made mine in Alabama...

American Way

Hank Williams Jr

© Bocephus Music, BMI

If you fly in from Birmingham you'll get the last gate
If you flew in from Boston no you sure won't have to wait
And I'm learnin' a little more everyday
About the power of the dollar and the people with white collars
And the good old American way

I've noticed I don't get much help when they see my blue jeans
Some slick with a suit walks up oh can I help you please
Yes I'm learnin' as I gain a little age
About the power of the dollar and the people with white collars
And the good old American way
[ guitar ]
Some high society lady says is your horse outside
No ma'am he's between my legs but you're too fat to ride
And you're learnin' a little more about my ways
And what I think about your dollar and your white collar
And your good old American way

If you don't like my Nudie boots I'm sorry about that
Don't make fun of my hat too you might get knocked flat
And you'll learn some more if you ever pass down our way
About the folks without the dollars and without white collars
Hell they are the American way
Sooey

Move It On Over

Hank Williams

© Fred Rose Music, BMI

I came in last night and I don't know when
And that woman of mine she wouldn't let me in
I said move it on over move it on over
Move over little dog cause the big dog's movin' in

She told me once she told me twice
I don't take no gals advice
Pack it on over move it on over
Move over old dog cause the new dog's movin' in

She told me not to mess around
But I done let that deal go down
Slide it on over move it on over
Move over skinny dog cause the fat dog's movin' in

The dog house here's kinda small
But we got some good sounds and they're wall to wall
Get it on over move it on over
Move over little dog cause the new dog's movin' in

She crawled back to me on her knees
But I'm busy cause I got new fleas
Get it on over scoot it on over
Move over old dog cause a new dog's movin' in

Yes I came in last night and I don't know when
And that second wife of mine wouldn't let me in
Said move it on over scoot it on over
Move over old dog cause fat dog's movin' in
Yeah move over old dog cause hot dog's movin' in

Won't It Be Nice

Merle Kilgore - Hank Williams Jr

© Bocephus Music, BMI

Won't it be nice to see you again
Seems I've been gone since I don't know when
I've had lonely nights and bottles for friends
And it'll be nice to see you again

Babe I've been down since you've been gone
It's hard to love over a phone
But it won't be long now till I hold you tight
Cause I'm coming home I'll be there tonight

No I don't always get standing ovations
I don't always knock the ball over the fence
My life is not always a perfect situation
And it'll be so nice just to see you again

I used to hate to go home
It's a bad feeling to be alone
There's been some changes since way back then
It'll be so nice to see you again

If You Don't Like Hank Williams

Kris Kristofferson

© Resaca Music, BMI

I like Charlie Daniels and I love big John Cash
And I think Waylon Watasha Jennings is a table thumpin' smash
Playin' with Marshall Tucker Band was as good as smokin' grass
But anybody that don't like Hank Williams you can kiss our ass

Cause I think what they've done was well worth doin'
And they're doin' it the best way that they can
Oh you're the only one that you are screwin'
When you put down what you don't understand
[ steel - fiddle ]
Yeah I love all them Allman Brothers Merle Haggard and George Jones
Shotgun Willie Nelson and them rockin' Rolling Stones
Everything the Eagles do and I'm in love with Linda Ronstadt
Anybody that don't like Hank Williams they can kiss our ass

Cause I think what they've done is well worth doin'...

I ain't sayin' that he was the first or the last
But if you don't like Hank Williams you can kiss our ass
