Country music singers are a really close family
but lately some of my kin folks have disowned a few otha's and me
i guess its because i kinda changed my direction
Lord, i guess i went and broke their family tradition

they get on me wanna know Hank why do you drink?
(Hank) why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
over and over everybody made my prediction
so if i get stoned I'm just carryin' on an old family tradition

I am very proud of my daddy's name
although his kinda music and mine ain't exactly the same
stop and think it over, put yourself in my position
