Waylon Jennings & Hank WIlliams Jr
The Conversation (1983)
Hank let's talk about your daddy tell me how your momma loved that man?
Well just break out a bottle Hoss I'll tell you bout the drifting cowboy band
We won't talk about the habits just the music and the man
Now Hank, you just gotta tell me did your daddy really write all them songs?
That don't deserve no answer Hoss let's light up and just move along
Do you think he wrote em about your momma or about the man who done her wrong?
Yeah back then they called him crazy, now a days they call him a saint
Now the ones that called him crazy, lord, are still writing on his name
Well if he was here right now Bocephus, would he think that we were right?
Don't you know he would Waltalja be right here by our sides
If we left for a show at Provo he'd be the first one on the bus and ready to ride
Where ever he is I hope he's happy, you know I hope he's doing well
He is cause he's got one arm around my mama now
And he sure did love Miss Audrey and raising hell
I won't ask you no more questions cause the stories only hank can tell
Well back 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
Let me tell you about lovesick, how Miss Audrey loved that man
You know I've always loved to listen to the stories about that Drifting Cowboy Band
Know when we get right down to it still the most wanted outlaw in the land
