Last updated: 07/05/2012 11:00:00 AM

[Waylon]
Hank let's talk about your daddy
Tell me how your momma loved that man.
[Hank]
Well, just break a bottle hoss
I'll tell ya' about the drifting cowboy band.
[Waylon]
We wont talk about the habits.
[Waylon & Hank]
Just the music and the man thats all.
[Waylon]
Now Hank, you just gotta tell me
Did your daddy really write all them songs, did he.
[Hank]
That don't deserve no answer hoss
Let's light up and just move along.
[Waylon]
Do you think he wrote 'em about your momma
Or about the man who done her wrong
You know that.
[Waylon & Hank]
Yeah, back then they called him crazy
Nowadays they call him a saint
Now the ones that call him crazy
Are still riding on his name.
[Waylon]
Well, if he was here right now Bocephus
Would he think that we were right?
Do you think he might?
[Hank]
Don't you know he would Watusy
Be right here by our side.
[Waylon]
If we left for a show in Provo
[Waylon & Hank]
Be the first one on the bus and ready to ride
Last one to go hoss.
[Waylon]
Wherever he is I hope he's happy
You know, I hope he's doing well.
Yes, I do.
[Hank]
He is
'Cause he's got one arm around my momma now
And her sure did love Miss Audrey and raising hell.
[Waylon]
I wont ask you no more questions
[Waylon & Hank]
To the stories only Hank could tell
And he could tell'em.
Back then they called him crazy
Now days they call him a saint .
[Hank]
Most folks don't know that
They fired him from the Opry
And that 'caused his greatest pain.
I'd love to tell you about lovesick
How Miss Audrey loved that man.
[Waylon]
You know, I've always loved to listen to
The stories about that drifting cowboy band.
That man.
[Hank]
You know when we get right down to it
[Waylon & Hank]
Still the most wanted outlaw in the land...
