(Don tell us how it really was when you was workin with daddy) Well in 1950 I took a little nip Along with Mr Williams on the way to Mississip We were stacked eight deep in a Packard limosine When we met this promoter in the town of New Orleans Well the man told daddy he had what it took And he liked the way he sang and he liked the way he shook He said pretty soon he'd make us all rich And we started believin that fat sumbitch Now daddy told the man if you wanna make some dough Take a little money and book me on a show And we played them dates and we filled the places well But Hank he done blowed the profit all to hell Cause he'd run through a ten and he'd run through a twenty And he'd run through a hundred just as hard as he could go Like a big (unknown) to a little bitty feller He'd spend a thousand dollars on a hundred dollar show Hank looked at me with a funny lookin grin Said I been to the Opry and I'm goin back again We met the owner in a little office there A big fat fella with some artificial hair He told Hank he wanted half of everything he made Or he'd have to tell Audrey bout some women Hank had laid And you told daddy he'd better get smart Get rid of them fellas and make a new start Then he fired my ass and he fired Jerry Rivers And he fired every body just as hard as he could go He fired old Cedric and he fired Sammy Pruitt And he fired some people that he didn't even know Well every song he made it went to number one Y'all was workin like hell and you was havin fun We was ridin every day and playin every night And every twenty minutes some of us had a fight Now daddy he was makin money hand over fist And y'all was getting screwed but you wasn't gettin kissed Yeah I told him to pass a liitle bit around But he said he'd rather send it to his folks in Alabam So he fired your ass and he fired Jerry Rivers And he fired everybody just as hard as he could go He fired old Cedric and he fired Sammy Pruitt And he fired some people that he didn't even know Now the owner of the Opry he's doin pretty good He's got a music company that they call Cedarwood And Hank played nothin but sold out halls And I was pumpin gas in greasy overalls Cause he fired my ass and he fired Jerry Rivers And he fired everybody just as hard as he could go He fired old Cedric and he fired Sammy Pruitt And he fired some people that he didn't even know Hank'd run through a fifty and he'd run through a hundred And he'd run through a thousand just as hard as he could go Buyin Cadillac coupes payin double alimony And he fired some people that he didn't even know
