Is it you Hank or is it me that is going to catch the first fish? One more question, will you sing just one song to me. Because you are my favorite Hank. I am looking forward to all this fun. See you in Florida Hank.

How did your dad come to nickname you Bosephus? I'm not sure I spelled that right.

If I win I would take my son. He has been a Hank Jr. fan for 33 years. He is 47 now. I had planned to surprise him with the entry but had to ask that question. He knows Hank, Jr has a lot of artifacts and would like to know what artifact Hank has found that he treasures the most..

I've been struggling with one question to ask for over a week then last night I heard 'All my Rowdy Friends' on the radio (rare these days) and my questions became clear:

 

Hank, what was it like to have so many creative, talented friends (Johnny, Waylon, George, Kris and I know there's many more) in your life?

 

Enjoy your trip to Florida, its about time!

Thanks for all the great songs and memories that go with them.

I would ask, Hank, sir, would you record a song I wrote?  Check out these lyrics and let me know:

 

I Was That Guy

 

Driving home this day’s nearly done me in

The weekend’s here and I’m ready to grin

Out of nowhere a couple punks cut me off over the ridge

I chased them down until we stopped under a bridge

Feeling the sweat break on my brow, I got out of the truck

Didn’t say much, knocked one down with one punch

The other looked a little surprised and didn’t speak

Their knees were shaking and looking a little weak

Suddenly I was caught off guard by familiar Bocephus sounds

Saw a confederate flag and smelled Jack Daniels around

I said guys I apologize and if you were old enough I’d offer you a beer

You remind me of myself so I’d to leave you a little something while we’re here

Pardon the circumstances but glad we could meet

You’re young and got the whole world at your feet.

Time will change that sooner than you care to know

All the worlds a stage and you’re part of the show

Don’t burn too fast, make life a party

Try not to hurt yourself or anybody

I know you’re young and trying to loosen the load

Just show a little respect to someone who’s traveled your road

 

Cause I was that guy

Yea, I was once you

A little time has gone by

But I’m not as removed as it seems

I think about it like it was yesterday

But it might as well be a million years ago

Cause it aint coming back, so I learn to go with the flow

Cause I was that guy

 

Relaxing out back on a sunny Sunday afternoon

Grilling some patties and drinking a brew

Got a call from son’s girlfriend’s mom, now what could be wrong

She said there’s something we need to talk about, it won’t take long

Your son received pictures from my daughter and not the g rated kind

I was speechless, dumbfounded and caught in a bind

Well maam I’m sorry to hear that, but how was I to know

She said don’t you look after your son and check his phone?

Said I’m not the most technically advanced kind of man

There are things I just don’t give a **bleep** to understand

She said they’ve been doing what is known as sexting and it’s a problem you see

I said sexting is just not part of my kind of reality

Sex is not something you can do with a phone in hand

Where I come from it takes place between a woman and a man

I’ll speak to junior when he’s back from burning up the roads.

Sorry maam but this is still sinking in and I gotta go

Son your girlfriends mom just gave me a call, I’m sure you already heard

I don’t know what to make of all this to find the right words

You better respect her, love her and treat her right

Those ladies can get you into trouble but they are a pretty sight

 

Let me tell how I know,

Cause I was that guy

Yea that was once me

Filled with lust

Running wild, no one could trust

Time has maybe slowed me down

But back in my day I sure got around

Cause I was that guy

When did you first decide that you wanted to follow in your Dad's footsteps and become a country music singer?

No big life questions Hank. We've both been around awhile.  We know the ropes.   Just asking "Can I reel in the first fish?."

Can we go bass fishing?  That's what my husband has taught me and if I bring him along, I'm sure that is what he would like to do.  I just want Hank to sing to me.

I would be curious as to whether or not Mr.William's has ever returned to Dover Foxcroft, Maine?A number of years ago I went on a bear hunt up there and stayed in a cabin he and his crew just vacated.Just curious. Respectfully, Allen Heady
