Corey Smith - I'm No Hank Williams

“I’m No Hank Williams” by Corey Smith from the CD “Hard-Headed Fool”

I got a foot in the door, and one in the rain

I’m standing on the threshold of fortune and fame

Out on a limb, I took that great leap of faith

So I might crash and burn but I might fly away

Who knows … There’s no telling what tomorrow holds

And I ain’t got a clue how I made it this far

With a few country songs on an acoustic guitar

I’m not too good looking and I’m painfully shy

Not cut out for the spotlight, just an ordinary guy

Who sings … about a little bit of everything

And I’m no Hank Williams but I’m feeling his pain

Strung out on a highway somewhere between comfort and shame

Oh and its getting hard to see, its getting hard to see

I ain’t got a new car, no mansion on a hill

Just a three bedroom house and whole bunch of bills

Its hard to get rich when everyone wants a cut

And all the family and friends they keep hitting you up

For cash … aww, the money burns too fast

My wife’s worried sick, afraid that I won’t be true

She’s seen all the movies, know what the highway can do

But I made a promise, praying my soul to keep

So my little boys won’t be ashamed of me one day

Lord, keep these pretty girls away

And I’m no Hank Williams but I’m feeling his pain

Stretched out in a back seat, a good man driven to drink

Oh and its getting hard to see

All that I wanted (All…) … was my chance to provide (my chance to provide…)

A song for the ages (Awww…) … leave some good work behind

I’m no role model, I’ve got more problems than most

Momma called me a genius, but hell I ain’t even close

A head full of questions, fumbling and stumbling around

Hell I couldn’t even tell you where I’ll be a few months from now

And I’m scared that I’m no where near prepared

But I’ve got a foot in the door and one in the rain

Not standing on the threshold of fortune and fame

I’ve got no way of knowing how its gonna end

I could be shut in or shut out … I guess it all depends on you

Well they think I’m cool

But I’m no Hank Williams

No I’m no Hank Williams

But I’m feeling his pain
