Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound Lyrics

by Hank Williams Jr.

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, I can't help myself at all
And I get whiskey bent and hell bound

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

Sure enough about closing time, 'bout stoned out of my mind
And I end up with some honky tonk special I found
Just as sure as the morning sun comes thinking of my sweet girl at home
And I need to get whiskey bent and hell bound

Play me some songs about a 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'
That'll tear me all apart
I'll get whiskey bent and hell bound

Yeah, old Hank's songs always make me feel low down
