Talking To Hank

This song is by Mark Chesnutt, features George Jones and appears on the album Longnecks & Short Stories (1992).

While I was hunting wild turkey and sippin' on Jim Beam
Well, I walked up on something like I'd never seen
So deep in the woods where I thought I was alone
Stood a structure where something or someone called home

I saw a shotgun and a guitar and a six-pack of beer
A sign on the front door said,"Guess, who lives here"
An old red bone hound that looked older than time
And an old man that's sure he was only twenty-nine

And I swear he looked just like ole Hank
I wouldn't bet a wooden nickel that he ain't
I got goose bumps and dizzy and felt kinda faint
I think I've been talking to Hank

He said,"I've played that old guitar in a drifting country band
Played coast to coast and a few foreign lands"
He said,"Some crowds are big and some crowds are small
Somehow I hope, I let 'em know I loved them all"

I said, "You're mighty skinny", and he said,"Would you believe
That it only took one woman to do this to me?"
But you know you better get your hat, son, get on out of the way
When they start hating love and start lovin' to hate

I swear he looked just like ol' Hank
I wouldn't bet a wooden nickel that he ain't
I got goose bumps and dizzy and felt kinda faint
I think I've been talking to Hank

Well, I swear he looked just like ole Hank
I wouldn't bet a wooden nickel that he ain't
I got goose bumps and dizzy and felt kinda faint
WelI, I think I've been talking to Hank
O Lord, I feel like we've been talking up ol' Hank
