  • Anymore I don't know I'm just doing the best I can
    After all I'm standing in the shadows of a very famous man
    As I travel around from town to town
    I have a lot of dad's fans and friends come around
    They say I know Hank would be proud of you if he were here today
    Now well we're all so glad and we know he would be too
    That you're carryin' on his music this way
    Yes they say Hank was the all time great
    And we know you'll be just as good as your dad
    But I just smile and say there'll never be another Hank Williams friends
    That's the part that always makes them sad

    Yes I know that I'm not great and some say I imitate
    Anymore I don't know I'm just doing the best I can
    It's hard standing in the shadows of a very famous man
    So many times when I'm on that stage I feel something go through me
    And for a minute I'm in a different world and that's when it does something to me
    The people are a hollering and clapping real aloud
    While I'm out they're taking my bows
    I look up toward the ceiling and I say to myself listen dad just listen to that crowd
    But as the show goes on the people clap and holler more
    I start singing another of your great songs
    That's the time that I know although you're gone your music will live on and on and on
