Harry Truman was our president
I was still in love with Mavis Brown

That was one big event we didn't see
It was the night Hank Williams came to town.
Mama ironed my shirt and daddy let me take the truck
We hit that county line for one quick round

Then I heard someone whisper; "Hey, that's him"
It was the night Hank Williams came to town.
On and on he sang into the night
How'd they get Miss Audrey in that gown

She said; "He sure is humble for a Grand Ole Opry Star."
It ain't often that Hank Williams comes to town."
While Hank signed his autograph on Beaulah Rice's fan
The effect on all our lives was quite profound
