Living Proof (Album Version)

Living Proof (Album Version)

Hank Williams, Jr.

I'm gonna quit singin' all these sad songs
'Cause I can't stand the pain
Oh, the life I sing about now
And the one I live is the same

When I sing them old songs of daddy's
Seems like every one comes true
Lord, please help me
Do I have to be the living proof

Why just the other night after the show
An old drunk came up to me
He says "You ain't as good as your daddy, boy
And you never will be"

Then a young girl in old blue jeans
Says, "I'm your biggest fan"
It's a good thing I was born Gemini
'Cause I'm living for more than one man

Remember Jimmie and Hank and Johnny
They were in the summer of life
When you called them away, Lord
I don't wanna pay that price

Don't let my son ever touch a guitar
May he never sing the blues
Let him be free
Don't make him be more living proof

I don't wanna be a legend
I just wanna be a man
But Lord, You know sometimes
I've needed a helpin' hand

And it ain't been so easy lately
I've had to go it all alone
But I've always had anything
I ever wanted, except a home

I'm gonna quit singin' all them sad songs
'Cause I can't stand the pain
Oh, the life I sang to you about
And the one I live is the same

Yes, I've sang those old songs of daddy's
And now it seems they all come true
Lord, please help me
Do I have to be the living proof

Lord, please help me
I don't wanna be the living proof
