Standing In The Shadows

By Hank Williams Jr.

'66 Bocephus Music »

D G D

I know that I'm not great and some say I imitate

D E7 A7

Anymore I don't know I'm just doing the best I can

G D

After all I'm standing in the shadows

A G D

Of a very famous man

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

Now well 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 doing the best I can

It's hard standing in the shadows

Of a very famous man

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 hollering and clapping real aloud

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 singing 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
