HANK WILLIAMS, JR.
"The Conversation"

[Waylon Jennings:]
Hank let's talk about your daddy tell me how your mama loved that man

[Hank Williams Jr.:]
Well just break out a bottle hoss I'll tell you 'bout the driftin' cowboy band

[Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams, Jr:]
We won't talk about the habits just the music and the man

[Waylon Jennings:]
Now Hank you just got to tell me
Did your daddy really write all them songs?
Did he?

[Hank Williams Jr.:]
That don't deserve no answer hoss,
Let's light up and just move along

[Waylon Jennings:]
Do you think he wrote 'em about your mama
Or about the man who done her wrong

[Hank Williams Jr.:]
You know that.

[Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr.:]
Well back then they called him crazy
Now days they call him a saint
Now the ones that called him crazy
Are still ridin' on his name

[Waylon Jennings:]
Well if he was here right now Bocephus,
Would he think that we were right do you think he might

[Hank Williams Jr.:]
Don't you know he would Watasha be right by our side

[Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr.:]
If we left for a show in Provo
He'd be the first one on the bus and ready to ride

[Waylon Jennings:]
Wherever he is I hope he's happy
You know I hope he's doin' well yes I do

[Hank Williams Jr.:]
He is 'cause he's got one arm around my mama now
And he sure did love Miss Audrey and raisin' hell

[Waylon Jennings:]
I wont ask you no more questions to the stories only Hank could tell

[Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr.:]
Nack then they called him crazy now a days they call him a saint
Most folks don't know that they fired him from the Opry
And that caused his greatest pain

[Hank Williams Jr.:]
I loved to tell you about lovesick how Miss Audrey loved that man

[Waylon Jennings:]
You know I've always loved to listen
To the stories about that driftin' cowboy band and the man

[Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr.:]
You know when we get right down to it
He's still the most wanted outlaw in the land
