Standard tuning (Capo 2)
The fact that this song is not on this site yet saddens me.
[C]Harry Truman was our presi[F]dent
A [G]coke and burger cost you thirty [C]cents
I was still in love with Mavis [F]Brown
[C]On the night Hank [G]Williams came to [C]town
I Love Lucy debuted on [F]TV
That [G]was one big event we didn't[C] see
Cause no one stayed at home for miles a[F]round
[C]It was the night Hank [G]Williams came to [C]town
[F]Momma ironed my shirt and daddy [C]let me take the truck
I [D]drove on out to Grapevine and[G] picked old Mavis up
[C]We hit that county line for one quick [F]round
[C]On the night Hank [G]Williams came to [C]town
A thousand people sweltered in the [F]gym
Then [G]I heard someone whisper hey that's[C] him
That's when the crowd let out this deafening [F]sound
[C]It was the night Hank [G]Williams came to [C]town
On and on he sang into the [F]night
Jam[G]balaya, Cheating Heart, I Saw the [C]light
How'd they get Miss Audrey in that [F]gown
[C]On the night Hank [G]Williams came to [C]town
[F]Mavis had her picture made with [C]Hank out by his car
[D]She said he sure is humble for a [G]Grand Ole Opry star
[C]Mavis said why don't we hang [F]around
[C]It ain't often that Hank [G]Williams comes to [C]town
[F]While Hank signed his autograph on [C]Beaulah Rizner's fan
[D]Mavis got acquainted with the [G]Drifting Cowboys Band
[C]The effect on all our lives was quite [F]profound
[C]On the night Hank [G]Williams came to [C]town
