  • Now they say, Hank Jr. has strayed away
    Of all them songs that put his daddy in an early grave
    But his daddy would be proud, he could see Bocephus now
    Why don't you leave that boy alone, let him sing his song

    Ole Waylon has been known to play half time
    And he been known to get out of his mind
    Don't know whether he's right or wrong
    He's got a string of hits about two miles long
    Why don't you leave that boy alone and let him sing his song

    Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there songs
    You know there gonna do whatever they want
    If you don't like the way they sing who's gonna cast the first stone
    Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there song

    Hank Williams was the king of country soul
    My daddy took me to see him in Lubuck but he didn't show
    Now the people got mad and they all went home
    The first thing we did was put his records on
    I guess, we should have left him alone and let him sing his song

    Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there songs
    You know there gonna do whatever they want
    If you don't like the way they sing who's gonna cast the first stone
    (One more time, Ernest)
    Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there song

    Why don't you leave them boys alone, let 'em sing there song Writer/s: DEAN DILLON, GARY STEWART, HANK WILLIAMS JR., TANYA TUCKER
