Family Tradition

Hank Williams Jr.

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

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

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

 EA
   Lordy I have loved some ladies, and I have loved Jim Beam,
 BAE
   And they both tried to kill me, in 1973,
 EA
   When that doctor asked me, son how'd ya get in this position?,
 BE
   I said a hey sawbones I'm just a carrying on and ol' family tradition,
So don't ask me Hank,

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

 BE
   Hey if I get stoned and sing all night long it's a family tradition.
