Family Tradition

Song Author Jason Boland Submitted by: Anonymous
[E]Country music singers always been a [A]real close family
But [B7]lately some of my kinfolks have disow[E]ned a few others and me
And I guess it's[A] because, I kinda changed my direction
[B7]Lord, I guess I went and broke [E]their Family Tradition


So they wanna know Hank
[E]Why do you drink[F]?   [G/F#](Get      [G]Drunk)
[A]Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned)
[B7]Why must you live out the songs t[E]hat you wrote? (Get Laid)
Stop and think it ove[A]r, put yourself in my position
If [B7]I get stoned, sing all night long, it's [E]a Family Tradition.

L[E]ord I am ver[A]y proud, of my daddy's name
[B7]Although his kind of music, and mine ain't [E]exactly the same
If I'm down in a honky[A]-tonk, and some ol slicks tryin' to gimme some
friction
[B7]Say leave me alone singin' all nig[E]ht long it's a Family Tradition

Still they all wanna know Hank
[E]Why do you drink[F]?   [G/F#](Get      [G]Drunk)
[A]Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned)
[B7]Why must you live out the so[E]ngs that you wrote? (Get Laid)
Stop and think it over, put yourself in [A]my unique position
If [B7]I get stoned and sing all night long, it's just a Family Tra[E]dition.

[E]I have loved some ladies, and [A]I have love Jim Beam
And [B7]they both tried to kill me, back in nineteen seventy-[E]three
When that doctor asks me, "Son, [A]how'd ya get in this condition?"
I say "[B7]Hey Sawbone, I'm just carryin' on an old Family Tra[E]dition."


So they wanna know Hank
[E]Why do you d[F]ri  [G/F#]nk? (     [G]Get Drunk)
[A]Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned)
[B7]Why must you live out the son[E]gs that you wrote? (Get Laid)
Stop and think it over, put yourself in[A] my position
[B7]If I get stoned and sing all night long, it's just a Family Trad[E]ition.

Country music singers always been a real close family
But lately some of my kinfolks have disowned a few others and me
And I guess it's because, I kinda changed my direction
Lord, I guess I went and broke their Family Tradition

So they wanna know Hank
Why do you drink? (Get Drunk)
Why do you roll smoke? (Get Stoned)
Why must you live out the songs that you wrote? (Get Laid)
Stop and think it over, put yourself in my position
