HANK WILLIAMS, YOU WROTE MY LIFE
Written by Paul Craft
[D] You [G] wrote Your Cheatin' [D] Heart about
A gal like my [D7] first ex-[A] wife
You [D] Moan The Blues for [G] me and for [D] you
Hank Williams, You [A] Wrote My [D] Life.
[D] The Cold, Cold Heart and a [G] doubtful [D] mind
I have known a [D7] few my [A] self
And the [D] gal that loved me [G] Half As [D] Much
As she loved some-[A] body [D] else.
I've heard that blue old whipporwill, too
And the Lonesome Whistle whine
I know that feel; so cold, so real
When The Blues Come Around at midnight.
We've never met, I know and yet
I know you well, My Friend
And if ever I, get to heaven on high
I hope you'll shake my hand.
