Hank Williams Jr. – Standing In The Shadows Lyrics

I know that I’m not great, and some say I imitate
Anymore I don’t know, I’m just doin’ the best I can
After all I’m standin’ in the shadows, of a very famous man
Spoken
As I travel around, from town to town
I have a lot of dad’s fans and friends come around
They say I know Hank would be proud of you if he were here today
While we’re all so glad and we know he would be too
That you’re carryin’ on his music this way
Yes they say Hank was the all time great
And we know you’ll be just as good as your dad
But I just smile and say there’ll never be another Hank Williams friends
That’s the part that always makes them sad
Yes I know that I’m not great, and some say I imitate
Anymore I don’t know, I’m just doin’ the best I can
It’s hard standin’ in the shadows, of a very famous man
Spoken
So many times when I’m on that stage, I feel something go through me
And for a minute I’m in a different world, and that’s when it does something to me
The people are a hollerin’ and clappin’ real loud, while I’m out they’re taking my bows
I look up toward the ceiling and I say to myself, listen dad, just listen to that crowd
But as the show goes on, the people clap and holler more, I start to sing another of your great songs
That’s the time that I know although you’re gone, your music will live on and on and on
