The Son Of Clayton Delaney Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
C F C On Fourth Street in Louisville in 1978 G7 Stranded in a honky-tonk somewhere 'tween dates C F C There was a little band playin' as I sipped my beer G7 C But I never thought that I'd hear what I'd hear
F C There was a young man a pickin' 'lectric guitar G7 Smokin' and a sniffin' a learnin' how to be a star C F C He had a big blue bandanna tied around his head G7 C A laid-back bass and a drummer named Red
F C Well his hair was cut long in the fashion of the time G7 Sandpaper vocal but he milked every line C F C His fingers like lightnin' on the guitar that he played G7 C He did Lay Down Sally and Hank Didn't Do It This Way
F C Well I sat there and listened for over an hour G7 And the closest thing to country was a rockin' Wildwood Flower C F C And I got that feelin' that I had been there before G7 C But I knew I had never been through that door
F C Well the jukebox was turned on and the band took a break G7 I made my way up front to howdy and shake C F C I said son I like your music and I kinda like your style G7 C But it seemed to me that I had seen that smile
F C Well he stood there for a moment then he laughed and he slapped his knee G7 He said you are one man I've wanted to see C F C He said I know you you story tellin' son of a gun G7 C And you know me I'm Clayton Delaney's song
