Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way
Waylon Jennings Lyrics


Lord it's the same old tune, fiddle and guitar
Where do we take it from here?
Rhinestone suits and new shiny cars
It's been the same way for years
We need a change

Somebody told me, when I came to Nashville
"Son, you finally got it made"
Old Hank made it here, and we're all sure that you will
But I don't think Hank done it this way, no
I don't think Hank done it this way

Okay!

Ten years on the road, makin' one-night stands
Speedin' my young life away
Tell me one more time, just so's I'll understand
Are your sure Hank done it this way?
Did ol' Hank really do it this way?

Lord, I've seen the world, with a five-piece band
Looking at the back side of me
Singing my songs, and one of his now and then
But I don't think Hank done 'em this way, no
I don't think Hank done 'em this way

Take it home

Did old Hank…

A core memory. My dad in his El Camino driving the rural rocky roads of Stillwater and listening to Waylon on eight track. I only had my dad in my life for a short time. I was ten when he died in 1980, but having any lasting memories are priceless. This song keeps him alive in my heart.

Sorry for your loss J B. Glad you're able to reconnect with him through Waylon's music, I do the same thing with my dad who has long since past.

Mikey Wispers

My 12 year old dog, Hank, passed away today. What a wonderful Australian Shepard mix he was. He did it his way. Never a better friend, glad to play this song in his honor

Luis Guilherme Bragança

you gave him love and in exchange you've got to understand this life a little bit more. having a dog is truly an experience, be glad it happened.
