I met Hank Jr. once at a gun show in Louisville Kentucky. He was a pretty cool guy. He had three old Colt revolvers and was trading with another vendor so I left him alone. Amazingly enough, there wasnt that many people bothering him. Maybe because he looked like the rest of us hillbillys at the show. I sat down and was having a coke and he sat down at my table. He was with a guy named Merle Kilgore, his manager and friend. I heard Merle died last year. It would be nice if more entertainers were as cool and down to earth as ol' Hank.

Hank is cool! A country boy can survive!


Country Boy Can Survive Lyrics

The preacher man says it's the end of time and the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry
The interest is up and the stock market's down
And you only get mugged if you go down town
I live back in the woods you see my woman and the kids and the dogs and me
I've got a shotgun a rifle and a four wheel drive
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
I can plow a field all day long I can catch catfish from dusk till dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke too
Ain't too many things these old boys can't do
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
Because you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
Cause we'se them ole boys raised on shotguns
We say grace and we say mamm if you ain't in to that we don't give a damn

We come from West Virginia coal mines
And the Rocky Mountains and the western skies
And we can skin a buck we can run a trout line
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
I had a good friend in New York City he never called me by my name just hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land and his taught him to be a business man
He used to send me pictures of the broadway nights I'd send him some homemade wine
But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For forty three dollars my friend lost his life
I'd love to spit some beechnut in that dude's eyes and shoot him with my ole 45
Cause a country boy can survive country folks can survive
Because you can't starve us out...

We're from North California and South Alabam and little towns all around this land
And we can skin a buck and run a trout line
And a country boy can survive country folks can survive
A country boy can survive country folks can survive

Hank probably can't remember the state either! :biggrin:

Cool story Hickory Nut...I agree, people need to be more down to earth like Hank. I saw him on an episode of huntin' with Knight and Hale the other night huntin' for the long beards...it was a good show.

If I remember, Hank has been sober for quite a few years now. If he forgot where he killed his deer, it must be the prior damage he has done to brain cells.

I met Hank Jr. at a club about 18-20 years ago. David Allen Coe was "in concert" at a club on the westside of Indianapolis and Hank Jr (& crew) was there taking it in. He was a wildman back then, and yes you guessed it, someone in the club that night wanted to test him...lol lol....

Hey!....whats a David Allen Coe concert without a fight?

Thats kinda odd, because I met David Allan Coe once at a Hank Jr. concert at deer creek. He (DAC) was wearing a rattlesnake skin suit. Mr. Coe could definitly be mayor of any trailer park below the dixie line.
