                FAMILY TRADITION

Written and performed by Hank Williams Jr.

(NOTE: I believe Hank does this on the key of E on the album; I have to do
it in D
 since my voice is a tad deeper... ;^)

 E                                         A
Country music singers have always been a real close family
     B7       E
But lately some of my kinfolk have disowned a few others and me
 A
I guess it's because I went and changed my position
 B7 E
Lord, I guess I went and broke their family tradition

C H O R U S

(They yell, they wanna know: "Hank..")
 E      A
Why do you drink?   Why do you roll smoke?
 B7   E
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote?
 A
Stop and think it over - try to put yourself in this position
     B7    E
When I get stoned, I'm just carryin' on and old family tradition.
 -----------------------------------------------
Now I am very proud  of my daddy's name
Although his kind of music and mine ain't exactly the same
Stop and think it over - try to put yourself in my position
When I get stoned and sing all night long it's just a family tradition
 ----------------------------------------------
CHORUS 2
(Don't ask me: "Hank...")
Why do you drink?  Why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out them songs that you wrote?
If I'm down in a honky tonk, and some ole slick's tryin' to gimme some
friction
I says "Leave me alone, I'm stayin' all night long 'cause it's a family
tradition"
 ----------------------------------------------
Lead SOLO
 ----------------------------------------------
Lordy, I have loved some ladies, and I still love Jim Beam
They both tried to kill me in nineteen seventy-three
When that doctor asks me "Son, how'dja get in this condition?"
I says "Hey Sawbones, I'm just a-carryin' on the old family tradition."
 ----------------------------------------------
CHORUS 3
(So don't ask me: "Hank...")
Why do you drink? Why do you roll smoke?
Why must you live out them songs that you wrote?
Stop and think it over - try to put yourself in my unique position
When I get stoned and sing all night long, it's just a family tradition
