Family Tradition

	  		E                                   A 
Country music singers always been a real close family 
    B7       					        E 
But lately some of my kinfolks have disowned a few others and me 
 			   A 
And I guess it's because, I kinda changed my direction 
B7 				            E 
Lord, I guess I went and broke their Family Tradition 
 
 
tabchorus
So they wanna know Hank E F G/F# G Why do you drink? (Get Drunk) A Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned) B7 E Why must you live out the songs that you wrote? (Get Laid) A Stop and think it over, put yourself in my position B7 E If I get stoned, sing all night long, it's a Family Tradition.

E A Lord I am very proud, of my daddy's name B7 E Although his kind of music, and mine ain't exactly the same A If I'm down in a honky-tonk, and some ol slicks tryin' to gimme some friction B7 E Say leave me alone singin' all night long it's a Family Tradition Chorus2: Still they all wanna know Hank E F G/F# G Why do you drink? (Get Drunk) A Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned) B7 E Why must you live out the songs that you wrote? (Get Laid) A Stop and think it over, put yourself in my unique position B7 E If I get stoned and sing all night long, it's just a Family Tradition. E A I have loved some ladies, and I have love Jim Beam B7 E And they both tried to kill me, back in nineteen seventy-three A When that doctor asks me, "Son, how'd ya get in this condition?" B7 E I say "Hey Sawbone, I'm just carryin' on an old Family Tradition." Chorus:3 So they wanna know Hank E F G/F# G Why do you drink? (Get Drunk) A Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned) B7 E Why must you live out the songs that you wrote? (Get Laid) A Stop and think it over, put yourself in my position B7 E If I get stoned and sing all night long, it's just a Family Tradition. B7 E If I get stoned and sing all night long, it's just a Family Tradition.
