"The Blues Man" as written by and Hank Jr. Williams....
I'm just a singer a natural born guitar ringer, kind of a clinger to sad old songs.

I'm not a walk behind'er, I'm a new note finder but my name's a reminder of a bluesman that already gone.

So I started drinking,took things that messed up my thinking I was sure sinking when you came along.

I was alone in the hot lights,not to much left in sight but she changed all that one night when she sang me this song.

Hey baby I love you. Hey baby I need you. Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me that your some kind of macho man.

You've wasted so much of your life running through the dark nights let me shine some love light down on this bluesman

I got so sick from speeding all the stuff they said I wasn't needed if I was to keep pleasing all of my fans.

I got cuffed on dirt roads. I got sued over no shows but she came and took all that ole load down off this bluesman.

Hey baby I love you too. Hey baby I need you. Hey baby I do get tired of this traveling band.

I'm thirty years old now nights would be cold now if you hadn't stuck it out in this bluesman.

I'm thirty years old now, nights sure would be cold now if you hadn't hung around for this bluesman.

    General CommentThis is an autobiographical tune. George Jones has this out now, and though it's not as good as Hank's version, I think it fits him pretty well too.
