I'da kept him up all night
I wouldn't let him close his eyes
Made him sing "I Saw the Light"
'Til he sobered up again

I'da kept the coffee strong
Oh, I coulda kept him hangin' on
If I'da been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

Gotta be in Ohio by tomorrow night
Hank, you gotta get up on that stage
You can't let all those good people
No, it just ain't right
To book a show and not show up to play

I'da kept him up all night
I wouldn't let him close his eyes
Made him sing "I Saw the Light"
'Til he sobered up again

I'da kept the coffee strong
Oh, I coulda kept him hangin' on
If I'da been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

And if his hands started tremblin' and his body turnin' cold
And if he started tuggin' at his soul
I'd have found one of his songs playin' on that AM radio
Held him tight and begged him not to go
I'da held him tight and begged him not to go

I'da kept him up all night
I wouldn't let him close his eyes
Made him sing "I Saw the Light"
'Til he sobered up again

I'da kept the coffee strong
Oh, I coulda kept him hangin' on
If I'da been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

He'd have lived to play more songs
Oh, I coulda kept him hangin' on
If I'da been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac
