C D# I was thumbin' back from Montgomery D# with a guitar on my back F C When a stranger pulled up beside me in an antique Cadillac. C D# Well, he was dressed like 1950, half drunk and hallow eyed F C Its a long walk to Nashville, would you like a ride, son. C D# He sat down in the front seat, and turned on the radio F C and them sad old songs comin' outta them speakers was solid country gold. C D# Then I noticed the stranger was ghost white pale when he asked me for a light. F C And knew there was somethin' strange about this ride. CHORUS: A# F C He said: Mister can you make folks cry when you play and sang. C Can you pay your dues, can you moan the blues G Can you bend them guitar strangs. A# F C He said: Boy, can you make folks feel what you feel inside, A# F C Cause if your big star bound let me warn you its a long hard ride. 2. Well, he cried just south of Nashville, and he turned that car around. he said: (spoken) this is where you get off, boy cause I'm going back to Alabam'. I stepped out of that ole Cadillac and I said Mister, many thanks. he said you don't have to call me mister, Mister. The whole world calls me Hank. repeat Chorus once or twice, depending on how you want to play it. Well, here is one of them DAC songs. You can post or whatever you would like to do with them.
