The Night Hank Williams Came to Town Lyrics

(Waylon Jennings)

Harry Truman was our president
A coke and burger cost you thirty cents
I was still in love with Mavis Brown
On the night Hank Williams came to town
I love Lucy, debut on TV

That was one big event, we didn't see
'Cause no one stayed at home for miles around
It was the night Hank Williams came to town
Mama ironed my shirt and Daddy let me take the truck
I drove on out to Grapevine and picked Old Mavis up
We hit that county line for one quick round
On the night Hank Williams came to town
A thousand people sweltered in the gym
Then I heard someone whisper, hey, that's him
That's when the crowd let out this deafening sound
It was the night Hank Williams came to town
On and on he sang into the night

Jambalaya, Cheatin' Heart, I Saw the Light
How'd they get Miss Audrey in that gown
On the night Hank Williams came to town

-Solo-

Mavis had her picture made with Hank outside his car
She said, he sure is humble for a Grand Ole Opry Star
Mavis said, why don't we hang a- round
It ain't often that Hank Williams comes to town
While Hank signed his autograph on Beulah Rice's fan
Mavis got acquainted with the Driftin' Cowboys Band
The effect on all our lives was quite profound
On the night Hank Williams came to town

(Radio announcer's voice in the background)
Remember, friends and neighbours, Hank Williams and all the Drifting
Cowboys will be at the high school gym in person for one show only
This Saturday night the big 2 hour show starts at 7:30 - tickets are
Just a dollar-fifty each; you get your money's worth the first 15 minutes
And the rest is free. That's Saturday night - advance tickets are on sale
Now at Renfrew's Drugstore, Do-Nut Heaven and here at the radio station.
Hank Williams - all the Drifting Cowboys, Don Helms, Jerry Rivers
