Where I grew up; Texas Country music is king Three songs for a quarter And the Juke Box would sing When it’s Saturday night It’s Grand Old Opry time Turn the radio on Grab a chair and recline Hank was the top singer His songs came from the heart So much great music lost Because his life was short No other then or since Composed song after song Could sing and record them Each a hit before long His music inspired Learned a Uke; then Guitar To play and sing like Hank His music took me far Now I have my own band Bluegrass most of the time Still play one of Hanks songs They always sound so fine I still love his music Play and sing all his hits Thank you Hank Williams You’re as good as it gets
