Waylon jennings Songs | Hank Williams, Jr. & Waylon Jennings Honor Hank Williams With Incredible Live Performance | Country Music Videos

 It doesn't get any better than two classic country artists coming together to honor a legend like Hank Williams! "The Conversation" is a song recorded by Waylon Jennings and performed with Hank Williams' son, Hank Williams Jr. 

The song is a true conversation between Waylon and Hank singing about Hank's life and the questions Waylon has for Hank about his father, who was one of the most influential singers and songwriters of the 20th century!

"The Conversation" was one of the tracks on Hank Williams, Jr.'s 1979 album, Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound and was also on Jennings' 1983 album, Waylon and Company. It hit #15 on the Billboard country charts.

The long-time friends came together for a duet and put on an unforgettable performance that you can't help but be mesmerized by, as they play their guitars and reflect on Hank Williams' fascinating life.

Watch the amazing live performance in the video below!


Hank let's talk about your daddy
Tell me how your momma loved that man.
Well, just break a bottle hoss
I'll tell ya' about the drifting cowboy band.
We wont talk about the habits.
[Waylon & Hank]
Just the music and the man thats all.
Now Hank, you just gotta tell me
Did your daddy really write all them songs, did he.
That don't deserve no answer hoss
Let's light up and just move along.
Do you think he wrote 'em about your momma
Or about the man who done her wrong
You know that.
[Waylon & Hank]
Yeah, back then they called him crazy
Nowadays they call him a saint
Now the ones that call him crazy
Are still riding on his name.
Well, if he was here right now Bocephus
Would he think that we were right?
Do you think he might?
Don't you know he would Watusy
Be right here by our side.
If we left for a show in Provo
[Waylon & Hank]
Be the first one on the bus and ready to ride
Last one to go hoss.
Wherever he is I hope he's happy
You know, I hope he's doing well.
Yes, I do.
He is
'Cause he's got one arm around my momma now
And he sure did love Miss Audrey and raising hell.
I wont ask you no more questions
[Waylon & Hank]
To the stories only Hank could tell
And he could tell'em.
Back then they called him crazy
Now days they call him a saint.
Most folks don't know that
They fired him from the Opry
And that 'caused his greatest pain.
I'd love to tell you about lovesick
How Miss Audrey loved that man.
You know, I've always loved to listen to
The stories about that drifting cowboy band.
That man.
You know when we get right down to it
[Waylon & Hank]
Still the most wanted outlaw in the land...
