Hank Williams Jr. – Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’ve got a good woman at home
Who thinks I do no wrong
But sometimes, Lord, she just ain’t always around
And you know that’s when I fall
Now I can’t help myself at all
And I get whiskey bent and hell bound
[Chorus]
Play me some songs about a ramblin’ man
Put a cold one in my hand
‘Cause you know I love to hear those guitar sounds
Don’t you play, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry
‘Cause I’ll get all balled up inside
And I’ll get whiskey bent and hell bound
[Verse 2]
Sure enough about closin’ time
About stoned out of my mind
And I end up with some honky tonk special I found
Just as sure as the mornin sun comes
Thinking of my sweet girl at home
And I need to get whiskey bent and hell bound
[Chorus]
Play me the songs about ramblin’ man
Put old Jim Beam in my hand
‘Cause you know I still love to get drunk
And hear country sounds
But don’t you play, Your Cheatin’ Heart
‘Cause that’ll tear me all apart
I’ll get whiskey bent and hell bound
[Outro]
Yeah, old Hank’s songs
Always make me feel low down
