Family Tradition Written and recorded by Hank Williams Jr.
C F Country music singers have always been a real close family G7 C But lately some of my kinfolk have disowned a few others and me F I guess it's because I kinda' changed my direction G7 C Lord I guess I went and broke their family tradition
They get on me and wanna' know Hank F Why do ya drink Hank why do you roll smoke G7 C And why must you live out the songs that you wrote F Over and over everybody met my prediction G7 C So if I get stoned I'm just carrying on an old family tradition
F I am very proud of my daddy's name G7 C Although his kind of music and mine ain't exactly the same F Stop and think it over put yourself in my position G7 C If I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family tradition
F Don't ask me Hank why do you drink Hank why do you roll smoke G7 C Why must you live out the songs that you wrote F If I'm down in a honky tonk some ol' slick tries to give me friction G7 I'll say leave me alone I'm singin' all night long C It's a family tradition
F Lordy I have loved some ladies and I have loved Jim Beam G7 C And they both tried to kill me in 1973 F When that doctor asked me son how'd ya get in this condition G7 C I said a hey sawbones I'm just a carrying on and ol' family tradition
F Don't ask me Hank why do ya drink Hank why do you roll smoke G7 C Why must you live out the songs that you wrote F Stop and think it over try to put yourself in my unique position G7 C If I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family tradition
