Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Family Tradition  Hank Williams Jr.

   [E]Country music singers,
   Have always been a [A] real close family,
   But [B] lately some of my kinfolk,
   Have disowned a few others and [E]me,
   I guess it's because, I kinda' [A]changed my direction,
   [B]Lord I guess I went and broke their family [E]tradition,
They get on me and wanna' know Hank,
CHORUS
   [E]Why do ya drink?,
   Hank [A]why do you roll smoke?,
   And [B]why must you live out the songs that you [E]wrote?,
   Over and over every [A]body met my prediction,
   If [B]I get stoned I'm just carrying on an old family [E]tradition

   [E]I am very proud, [A]of my daddy's name,
   [B]Although his kind of music and [A]mine ain't exactly the [E]same,
   Stop and think it over, put your[A]self in my position,
   If [B]I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family [E]tradition,
So don't ask me Hank,

   [E]Why do ya drink?, Hank [A]why do you roll smoke?,
   And [B]why must you live out the songs that you [E]wrote?,
   [E]If I'm down in a honky tonk and some ol' [A]slick tries to give me friction,
   I'll say [B]leave me alone I'm singin' all night long 'cause it's a,
   family [E]tradition

   [E]Lordy I have loved some ladies, and [A]I have loved Jim Beam,
   And [B]they both tried to kill me, in [A]197[E]3,
   [E]When that doctor asked me, son [A]how'd ya get in this position?,
   I said a [B]hey sawbones I'm just a carrying on and ol' family [E]tradition,
So don't ask me Hank,

   [E]Why do ya drink?, Hank [A]why do you roll smoke?,
   And [B]why must you live out the songs that you [E]wrote?,
   [E]Stop and think it over, put your[A]self in my unique position,
   If [B]I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family [E]tradition.

   Hey if [B]I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family [E]tradition.
