Tracklist

Old Habits

length: 3:04

Well I kicked the habit, of smoking back sometime ago. And I tried the hard stuff,but I had to let all that go. But the toughest thing I ever gave up was today.
Cause Old Habits Like You are hard to break.

I chew lifesavers to help me get off ciggarates. But you know for your love I aint found no lifesavers yet. And I've grown cold Turkey cause theres not even on kiss ad day.
And Old habits like you are hard to break.

Old habits like you are hard to break.
Love with someone new is so hard to make.
I had grown so use to your love and all of your ways.

And Old Habits Like You are hard to breakBla

Dinosaur

length: 3:20
Hey man them ain't high heeled sneakers
And they sure don't look like cowboy boots
And that ain't rock and roll your playin
And it sure ain't country or rhythm and blues
Your singing a song about making love to your drummer
Well gay guitar pickers don't turn me on
And we don't all get in to Donna summers
Do you happen to know any old Hank Williams songs!

Cause you see I'm a dinosaur
I should have died out a long time before
Have Pitty on a dinosaur
Hand me my hat excuse me maam
But where's the door!

Used to be I had a lot of fun in the old hangout
We'd get stoned at the jukebox to stay out of fights
Now and then we'd light a little smoke
In the truck out back!
And a little old Jim Beam and we'd get right
And you know these flashing lights sure make me dizzy
And this disco's very strange to my ears
Looks like they turned the longhorn into a spaceship
And I'll be leaving just a soon as I finish this beer

Cause you see I'm a dinosaur
I should have died out a long time before
Have Pitty on a dinosaur
Hand me my hat excuse me mam
But where's the door!

Give us our hats
Excuse Me mam
Where the door!

Kaw-Liga

length: 4:23
Kaw-liga was a wooden Indian standing by the door.
He fell in love with an Indian maiden over in the antique store.
Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show,
So she could never answer "yes" or "no."

Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he never got a kiss.
Poor ol' Kaw-liga, he don't know what he missed.
Is it any wonder that his face is red?
Kaw-liga, that poor ol' wooden head.

He always wore his Sunday feathers and held a tomahawk.
The maiden wore her beads and braids and hoped some day he'd talk.
Kaw-liga, too stubborn to ever show a sign,
Because his heart was made of knotty pine.

Kaw-liga was a lonely Indian, never went nowhere.
His heart was set on the Indian maid with the coal black hair.
Kaw-liga just stood there and never let it show,
So she could never answer "yes" or "no."

And then one day a wealthy customer bought the Indian maid,
And took her, oh, so far away, but ol' Kaw-liga stayed.
Kaw-liga just stands there as lonely as can be,
And wishes he was still an old pine tree.

Here I Am Fallin' Again

length: 3:36
Here I am fallin' again, in places that I've already been.

I sure didn't plan it and I don't understand it but here I am fallin' again.

Here I am lyin' again making up places that I've never been.

I thought I was through with these heart breaking blues but here I am lyin' again.

Why don't a man ever take time to think what is at stake?

Is it the danger or the pleasurable stranger but those are the chances we'll take.

I'd hate to come face to face with her and her at the same place

cause it will be hell If I had to tell her someone has taken her place.

I had a beautiful wife,she found it all out one night

and the pleasurable stranger, lord I didn't change her and I lost it all this time.

So here I am cryin' again and callin' symphothy from my ole friends

he once loved her and she once him and here I am cryin' again.

The Blues Man

length: 4:19
composer: Hank Williams, Jr.
lyricist: Hank Williams, Jr.
I'm just a singer a natural born guitar ringer, kind of a clinger to sad old songs.

I'm not a walk behind'er, I'm a new note finder but my name's a reminder of a bluesman that already gone.

So I started drinking,took things that messed up my thinking I was sure sinking when you came along.

I was alone in the hot lights,not to much left in sight but she changed all that one night when she sang me this song.

Hey baby I love you. Hey baby I need you. Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me that your some kind of macho man.

You've wasted so much of your life running through the dark nights let me shine some love light down on this bluesman

I got so sick from speeding all the stuff they said I wasn't needed if I was to keep pleasing all of my fans.

I got cuffed on dirt roads. I got sued over no shows but she came and took all that ole load down off this bluesman.

Hey baby I love you too. Hey baby I need you. Hey baby I do get tired of this traveling band.

I'm thirty years old now nights would be cold now if you hadn't stuck it out in this bluesman.

I'm thirty years old now, nights sure would be cold now if you hadn't hung around for this bluesman.

All in Alabama

length: 4:01

I THOUGHT IF I'D CLIMB UP OLE AJAX MOUNTAIN MAYBE THAT WOULD HELP ME GET IT ALL OFF MY MIND.

I MADE IT UP TO THE TOP, PICKED OUT OUT A CLEAR SPOT. I THOUGHT A WHOLE LOT ABOUT THE REST OF MY LIFE.

I HAD NO IDEA THEN SOON IT WOULD NEARLY END UP ON THIS MOUNTAINSIDE I WOULD NEARLY DIE. AND THERE ALL IN ALABAMA AND THERE ALL IN DIXIELAND.

THEY SAID I'D NEVER SING AGAIN I LEARNED ALOT ABOUT MY FRIENDS 'CAUSE WHEN YOUR SHOT DOWN AND OUT YOU DON'T GET MANY CALLS.

BUT I SAW SOME TEARS IN SOME EYES AND SOON MY POOR OLD MOTHER WOULD DIE I NEARLY LOST IT ALL WHEN I LOST MY GRANDPA.

BUT YOU COULD FIND US ALL IN ALABAMA YEAH WE'RE ALL DOWN IN DIXIELAND

I DIDN'T DIE OUT IN MONTANA NO LORD YOU LET ME GET BACK TO MY OWN HOMELAND AND I'M GONNA HOLD ON TO HER HAND.

I DONE A LOT WHOLE SEARCHING A WHOLE LOT OF HURTIN' BEFORE I FINALLY FOUND MY ROAD IN LIFE.

YOU GOT TO SAY THINGS YOU WANT TO SAY GO ON AND DO THINGS YOUR OWN WAY YOU CAN CLIMB ANY OLD MOUNTAIN ONCE YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

AND I MADE MINE IN ALABAMA AND I FOUND MINE DOWN IN DIXIELAND.

I DIDN'T DIE OUT IN MONTANA NO LORD YOU LET ME GET BACK TO MY OLE HOMELAND AND I'M GONNA HOLD ON TO HER HAND


The American Way

length: 3:07
writer: Hank Williams, Jr.
if you blew in from Boston, no, you sure won't have to wait,
and I'm learning, a little more every day,
about the power of the dollar, and the people with white collars,
and the good old American way.

2. I've noticed I don't get much help when they see my blue jeans,
some slick with a suit walks up, “Oh, can I help you please?”
Yes, I'm learning, as I gain a little age,
about the power of the dollar, and the people with white collars,
and the good old American way.
+ Instrumental = verse 2

3. Some high society lady says, ” Is your horse outside?”
“No, ma'am he's between my legs, but you’re too fat to ride!”
And you’re learning, a little more about my ways,
and what I think about your dollar and your white collar,
and your good old American way.

4. If you don't like my Nudie boots, I'm sorry about that,
don't make fun of my hat, too, or you might get knocked flat,
and you'll learn some more, if you ever pass down our way,
about the folks without the dollars, and without white collars,
hell, l they are the American way.
+ instrumental = verse 4


Move It on Over

length: 3:08
composer: Hank Williams
lyricist: Hank Williams
Came in last night at half past ten
That baby of mine wouldn't let me in
So move it on over (move it on over)
Move it on over (move it on over)
Move over little dog cause the big dog's moving in

She changed the lock on my front door
My door key don't work no more
So get it on over (move it on over)
Scoot it on over (move it on over)
Move over skinny dog cause the fat dog's moving in

The dog house here is mighty small
But it's better than no house at all
So ease it on over (move it on over)
Drag it on over (move it on over)
Move over old dog cause a new dog's moving in

She told me not to play around
But I done let the deal go down
So pack it on over (move it on over)
Tote it on over (move it on over)
Move over nice dog cause a mad dog's moving in

She warned me once, she warned me twice
But I don't take no one's advice
So scratch it on over (move it on over)
Shake it on over (move it on over)
Move over short dog cause tall dog's moving in

She'll crawl back to me on her knees
I'll be busy scratching fleas
So slide it on over (move it on over)
Sneak it on over (move it on over)
Move over good dog cause a mad dog's moving in

Remember pup, before you whine
That side's yours and this side's mine
So shove it on over (move it on over)
Sweep it on over (move it on over)
Move over cold dog cause a hot dog's moving in.

Won't It Be Nice

length: 3:08
Won't it be nice to see you again seems I've been gone since I don't know when.
I've had lonely nights and bottles for friends and it'll be nice to see you again.

Babe I've been down since you've been gone
its hard to love over a phone
but it won't be long now 'til I hold you tight, 'cause I'm coming home.I'll be there tonight.

Though I don't always get standing ovations I don't always knock the ball over the fence.
My life is not always a perfect situation and it will be so nice to see you again.

I used to hate to go home its a bad feeling to be alone
theres been some changes since way back then
it will be so nice to see you again.

If You Don't Like Hank Williams

length: 2:52
I like Charlie Daniels and
I love big John Cash
And I think Waylon "Woktosha" Jennings
Is a table thumpin' smash
Playin' with Marshall Tucker Band
Was as good as smokin' grass
But if you don't like Hank Williams
You can kiss our ***

Cause I think what they done
Is well worth doin'
And their doin' it the
Best way that they can
Oh you're the only one
That you are screwin'
When you put down what
You don't understand

I love all them Allman Brothers,
Merle Haggard, and George Jones
Shotgun Willie Nelson and them
Rockin' rollin' Stones
Everything the Eagles do
And I'm in love with Linda Rondstat
Anybody that don't like Hank Williams
You can kiss our ***

Cause I think what they done
Is well worth doin'
And their doin' it the
Best way that they can
Oh you're the only one
That you are screwin'
When you put down what
You don't understand

I ain't sayin' that he was
The first or the last
But if you don't like Hank Williams
You can kiss our ***
