Lyrics

"Hello Hank"

Alone last night I drifted off to sleep
Had whiskey for my dinner and nothing else to eat
Thinking about my life and how things had gone wrong
Had Hank on the stereo singing those lonesome songs

Chorus:
Hello Hank it's good to see you again
I knew you would be here in this promised land
The world sure has missed you and the songs that you sang
Hello Hank it's good to see you again

I dreamed I saw that long black limosine
The hurst that was in front the body sure looked like me
They lowered me in to the ground beneath the grassy green
Then I saw the light and Saint Peter let me in
