HELP ME UNDERSTAND Lyrics - Hank Williams
Review The Song (2)
A little girl prayed at the close of the day,
Cause her daddy had gone far away,
On her little face was a look of despair,
I stood there and listened, and I heard this prayer
My mommy says daddy has brought us to shame
And I'm never no more to mention his name
Lord take me and lead me and hold to my hand
Oh heavenly Father help me understand
You know friends I wonder--
Just how many homes are broken tonight
And just how many tears are shed
By some little word of anger
That never should have been said
I'd like to tell you a story
Of a family I once knew.
We'll call them Mary and William
And their little daughter Sue
Now Mary was just a plain mother
And Bill was just a usual dad
And they had their little family quarrels
(like everybody else)
But neither one really got mad
Then one day something happened
It was nothing of course
But one word led to another
And the last word led to a divorce
Now here were two grown up people
Who failed to use common sense
They strengthened their own selfish pride
At little Sue's expense
You know she didn't ask to be brought to
To drift from pillar to post
But a divorce never stops to consider
The ones it hurts the most
There'd be a lot more honest loving
In this wicked ole world today
If just a few parted parents
Could hear little Sue say
Take me and lead me and hold to my hand
Oh heavenly Father, help me understand

King Harium Williams (sp. middle name) | Reviewer: Dewey | 6/22/10
As 'HANK' or 'LUKE' He was GREAT. The songs he wrote or used of others were made great by his ability to sing and tell stories. I'm 71 years old and I've been a fan all my life. His voice is just so easy to listen to.

My Favourite Luke the Drifter | Reviewer: Terri from Canada | 10/19/09
This is my favourite Luke the Drifter song. Beyond the Sunset is a close second.
How I wish there were musicians still like Hank around. Besides the fact that he was an incredible singer, he was a man who not afraid to reveal his heart in his music and not worry about what people thought. He captured what lives in the hearts of most people, whether they want to admit it to themselves or not. Hank is my personal hero.
