Waylon Jennings And Hank Williams Jr. – The Conversation Lyrics

[Waylon:]
Hank let’s talk about your daddy
Tell me how your momma loved that man
[Hank:]
Well, just break a bottle hoss
I’ll tell ya’ about the drifting cowboy band
[Waylon:]
We wont talk about the habits
[Waylon & Hank]
Just the music and the man thats all
[Waylon:]
Now Hank, you just gotta tell me
Did your daddy really write all them songs, did he
[Hank:]
That don’t deserve no answer hoss
Let’s light up and just move along
[Waylon:]
Do you think he wrote ’em about your momma
Or about the man who done her wrong
You know that
[Waylon & Hank:]
Yeah, back then they called him crazy
Nowadays they call him a saint
Now the ones that call him crazy
Are still riding on his name
[Waylon:]
Well, if he was here right now Bocephus
Would he think that we were right?
Do you think he might?
[Hank:]
Don’t you know he would Watasha
Be right here by our side
[Waylon:]
If we left for a show in Provo
[Waylon & Hank:]
Be the first one on the bus and ready to ride
Last one to go hoss
[Waylon:]
Wherever he is I hope he’s happy
You know, I hope he’s doing well
Yes, I do
[Hank:]
He is
‘Cause he’s got one arm around my momma now
And her sure did love Miss Audrey and raising hell
[Waylon:]
I wont ask you no more questions
[Waylon & Hank:]
To the stories only Hank could tell
And he could tell’em
Back then they called him crazy
Now days they call him a saint
[Hank:]
Most folks don’t know that
They fired him from the Opry
And that ’caused his greatest pain
I’d love to tell you about lovesick
How Miss Audrey loved that man
[Waylon:]
You know, I’ve always loved to listen to
The stories about that drifting cowboy band
That man
[Hank:]
You know when we get right down to it
[Waylon & Hank:]
Still the most wanted outlaw in the land…
