Waylon Jennings And Hank Williams Jr performs "The Conversation"

"The Conversation" is a single by American country music artists Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr. Originally, the song was one of the tracks featured on Hank Williams Jr.'s 1979 Platinum selling album Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound. The track was included on Jennings' 1983 album Waylon and Company, which consisted almost entirely of duets, and was released as the album's second radio single. A music video was made to promote the single, a rarity for country music at the time. It was the first for Jennings and the second for Williams, with his first being "Queen of My Heart". The song was a moderately successful hit and reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.

Waylon Jennings With Hank Willaims Jr. - The Conversation


Hank, let's talk about your daddy

Tell me how your mama loved that man

Well, just break out a bottle, hoss

I'll tell you bout the driftin' cowboy band

We won't talk about the habits

Just the music and the man, that's all

Now Hank, you just got to tell me

Did your daddy really write all them songs, did he

That don't deserve no answer, hoss

Let's light up and just move along

Do you think he wrote 'em about your mama

Or about the man who done her wrong, you know that

Yeah, back then they called him crazy

Nowadays they call him a saint

Now the ones that called him crazy

Are still ridin' on his name

Well, if he was here right now, Bocephus

Would he think that we were right, do you think he might

Don't you know he would Watasha

Be right here by our side

If we left for a show in Provo

He'd be the first one on the bus and ready to ride

Wherever he is I hope he's happy

You know I hope he's doin' well, yes I do

He is 'cause he's got one arm around my mama now

And he sure did love Miss Audrey and raisin' hell

I won't ask you no more questions

To the stories only Hank could tell

Back then they called him crazy

Nowadays they call him a saint

Most folks don't know that they fired him from the Opry

And that caused his greatest pain

I loved to tell you about lovesick

How Miss Audrey loved that man

You know I've always loved to listen

To the stories about that driftin' cowboy band and the man

You know when we get right down to it

Still the most wanted outlaw in the land, yeah, woh
