"Hank and Lefty" as written by and Dallas Frazier A.l. Owens....
Daddy had a 1949 Ford
When I was just about ten years old
We would listen to Hank and Lefty on the radio
Why Don't You Love Like You Used to Do?
And Just Look What Thoughts Will Do
Old Hank and Lefty raised my country soul

Now I learned how to sing and shuffle my shoes
Listen to Hank sing the Lovesick Blues
We never met Ol' Hank but we was awful close
Cut my teeth on Always Late
And I Love You a Thousand Ways
Ol' Hank and Lefty raised my country soul

Daddy said the hair on his neck would crawl
When old Hank sang about the light he saw
Hank sure put a whole lot of heart in the songs he wrote
Every time daddy got a little bit tight
Mom and Dad's Waltz would make him cry
Old Hank and Lefty raised my country soul

Now I learned how to sing and shuffle my shoes
Listen to Hank sing the Lovesick Blues
We never met Ol' Hank but we was awful close
Cut my teeth on Always Late
And I Love You a Thousand Ways
Ol' Hank and Lefty raised my country soul

Old Hank and Lefty raised my country soul
Old Hank and Lefty raised my country soul
