Things would be a lot different if legendary country singer Hank Williams Jr. was President of the United States.
In his 1988 song "If The South Woulda Won", Hank Jr. imagines what the world would be like if the South had won the Civil War and if he were President.
His first order of business would be to make the day Elvis Presley passed away, August 16, a National holiday. He would also make everyone learn Cajan cookin' and move the capital to Montgomery, Alabama.
Hank Jr. sings that he would also put his father, the late great Hank Williams, on the $100 bill, as well as making the day Patsy Cline passed away a National holiday.
As most fans know, he rarely performs a song the same twice, so at this particular show at Chilifest in Snook, Texas back in 2014, Hank Jr. sang, "The day Hank passed away would be our National holiday," replacing Elvis with his dad. Instead of putting his old man on the $100 bill, in this version, he says he'd put John Lee Hooker, a legendary Delta blues guitarist and singer, on the bill.
Hank Jr. fans were throwing their hands up, cheering for the legend as he sang that "we woulda had it made" if he were "President of the Southern States".
One thing we know for sure is that a nation under Bocephus, would be rowdy as hell!
