The Last Time I Saw Hank

	  		Intro: Asus4  A  (x2) 

Verse: 1 
        A 
Oh, the last time I saw Hank 
       D                                A    Asus4  A 
He was walking through a cornfield all alone 

He was looking kinda hungry 
       F#m                                    E 
Like a dog that buried but could not find the bone 
      A 
And I asked him, did he need a drink? 
          D                             A     Asus4  A 
He said, "Son, you can take that to the bank" 

Then I woke up in a cold sweat 
        E                                 A     Asus4  A 
In this dream I call "The Last Time I Saw Hank" 

Verse: 2 
        A 
Oh, the last time I saw George Jones 
      D                              A    Asus4  A 
Was a honky tonk on the road to Galveston 

I believe he was still drinking 
               F#m      E 
Must have been 1980, 1981 
            A 
And you can feel the pain and sorrow 
       D                                      A    Asus4  A 
As his words flew out and rose high then they sank 

Then a bottle broke though my windshield 
        E                                 A     Asus4  A 
In this dream I call "The Last Time I Saw Hank" 

Bridge 1 
        D 
Oh, the last time I saw Jesus 
                                   A  Asus4  A 
He was walking up the hill of Calvary 

And he stumbled but he got some help 
       F#m                       E 
From a man they call "Simon of Cyrene" 
               D 
I called out, "Jesus, I am drowning" 
                                                     C#m 
He says, "It's no one drowns, 'cause I will walk the plank" 
      Bm 
And I woke up treading water 
        E                                 A     Asus4  A 
In this dream I call "The Last Time I Saw Hank" 

Interlude: Asus4  A  (x3) 

Verse: 3 
        A 
Oh, the last time I saw my father 
   D                                 A    Asus4  A 
He looked as if he'd just got out of jail 

And he said, "I'm gonna win it back" 
       F#m                          E 
Like a man convinced somehow he had failed 
         A 
From the corn fields of Iowa 
   D                                 A    Asus4  A 
To Hollywood and three months in the tank 

Oh, the great American dreamer 
     E                                 A     Asus4  A 
In a dream I call "The Last Time I Saw Hank" 

Bridge 2 
        D 
Oh, the last time I saw my mother 
                              A    Asus4  A 
Someone put a rose on her forehead 

Was this miracle or mockery? 
             F#m                            E 
I'd scream, "She's asleep, she ain't really dead" 
      D 
And I sang my old song "Alkali" 
                                    C#m 
She opened up her eyes and then she winked 
           Bm 
And it all moved in a circle 
        E                                 A     Asus4 A 
In this dream I call "The Last Time I Saw Hank" 

Interlude: Asus4  A 

Verse: 4 
        A 
Oh, the last time I saw Hank 
       D                                A    Asus4  A 
He was walking through a cornfield all alone 

Outro: Asus4  A   (x2)
