Hank Williams, Jr. Old School Lyrics

I remember a young Johnny Cash waiting in the wings
Cause he'd hand me his cigarette when he'd go out to sing
And good ole Marshall Tucker Band back in 83
Was a special night they asked me
Come on out and play 'Can't You See'

Dolly was a teenage girl when I first me her wow

Jerry Lee played rock n roll at my house and I'm proud

I'm from the old school

But I made up my own rules

But I learned a thing or two

From some pretty good teachers

My education has served me well

One look at me and you can tell my music's true
A class reunion of the blues

I'm from the old school

Well things were kinda rough at times I had to find my way

Not exactly an overnight sensation like some are today

Hey I'm a dinosaur that's for sure but here's what I gotta say
To anyone that questions my credentials "Hi, I'm Hank"

And I'm from the old school

But I made up some new rules

And you might learn a thing or two if ya hang around

I'll teach you to write and play n sing 'em

Take these guitars out and string 'em

We'll make your music true

A class reunion of the blues

I'm from the old school

And after all the songs are sang

Let's stop and have a drink

From my old bar stool

Hey everybody here's to the old school Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
