The Life Story Of Hank Williams Recorded by Hawkshaw Hawkins Written by Louis Innis and Hawkshaw Hawkins
C F C The life of Hank Williams on earth it was brief G7 Was loaded with laughter sorry and grief C F C Devoted his life to bring people joy G7 C Only a few knew Hank was a sick boy
F C On September 17th 1923 Hank Williams was born
On a farm near Georgiana Alabama G7 Hank was the younger of two children C Since his farther was sick from World War One F Hank at the age of 9 took it upon himself C To make a living for his family
So Hank started selling peanuts G7 C And shinning shoes on the street F For 4 years Hank made a living this way C When he was 13 his family moved to
Hank continued to sell peanuts and shine shoes G7 He also got a job on a nearby radio station C F Life was quite a struggle for Hank in his early years C While other kids were devoting their time G7 To school and play Hank was busy making a living C For his mother father and sister
For about the next ten years
Not much happened to Hank F C He was just another country entertainer
Around 1945 he made his first record G7 Which was Honky Tonk C From the day on the star begin to shine F And every record from then on C Made the stars shine a little brighter G7 The last five years that Hank recorded a song C It automatically became a hit
F C I know you all remember the song Lovesick Blues
And Jambalaya and many many others
As strange as it may seem one of his latest G7 Records was I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive C F On the first day of January 1953 Hank Williams C Passed away in the back seat of his automobile
G7 C I was to appear on the same show that day
But the news came first that Hank passed away F C When they made the announcement it silenced the crowd
In reverence we stood with our heads bowed G7 Our hearts were sad but the show we did play C Cause everyone knew that Hank would F C Have wanted it that way
