but lately some of my kin folks have disowned a few otha's and me
Lord, i guess i went and broke their family tradition
they get on me wanna know Hank why do you drink?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
so if i get stoned I'm just carryin' on an old family tradition
I am very proud of my daddy's name
stop and think it over, put yourself in my position

(Hank) why do you roll smoke?
If I'm down in a Honky-Tonk, some ol' slicks tryin to give me friction

and they both tried to kill me in 1973
I said hey sawbones I'm just carryin on an old family tradition
So don't ask me Hank why do you drink?
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
If I get stoned and sing all night long It's just a family tradition!
