emmylou harris – hank & lefty lyrics

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.

chours:
now i learned how to sing and shuffle my shoes
listin 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.

— instrumental —

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
everytime daddy got a little bit tight
”mom and dad’s waltz” would make him cry
old hank and lefty raised my country soul.

chours:
now i learned how to sing and shuffle my shoes
listin 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…
