Hank Williams recorded "Hey Good Lookin" along with "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still In Love With You)," "Howlin' At The Moon" and "My Heart Would Know" in an afternoon session at Nashville's Castle Recording Studio in 1951. In 2001 this version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. 

This song was originally written for Hank's friend, Jimmy Dickens.  William's told Dickens that in order to become a star he would need a hit record. He offered to write for Dickens and had the song complete within 20 minutes. However, a week later Williams, not Dickens, recorded the song. "That song's too good for you", Hank joked with Jimmy.

It seems that no matter how many times this classic is covered (Jimmy Buffett, Clint Black, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, and George Strait) none will measure up to the original. 

+++++++++++ LYRICS BELOW +++++++++++
Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?
How's about cooking somethin' up with me?
Hey, sweet baby - don't you think maybe
We can find us a brand new recipe?

I got a hot rod Ford, and a two dollar bill
And I know a spot right over the hill
There's soda pop and the dancing's free
So if you wanna have fun, come along with me

Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?
How's about cooking somethin' up with me?

I'm free and ready, so we can go steady.
How's about saving all your time for me?
No more lookin' - I know I been cookin'
Hows about keepin' steady company?

I'm gonna throw my date book over the fence
And buy me one for five or ten cents
I'll keep it till it's covered with age
Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page

Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?
How's about cooking somethin' up with me?
