Honky Tonkin' - I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive lyrics

Recorded by hank williams
Written by hank williams and fred rose

Capo: 1st fret key: f# play: f
Now you're [f] lookin' at a man that's gettin' kind-a mad
I had lot's of luck but it's all been bad
No [c7] matter how i struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world a-[f] live.

My fishin' pole's broke the creek is full of sand
My woman run away with another man
No matter how i struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive.

A [bb] distant uncle passed away [bb7] and [f] left me quite a batch [f7]
And [bb] i was livin'g high until that fatal [bb7] day
A lawyer [c7] proved i wasn't born
I was only hatched.---[f]

Ev'rything's agin' me and it's got me down
If i jumped in the river i would prob'ly drown
No matter how i struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive.

These shabby shoes i'm wearin' all the time
Are full of holes and nails
And brother if i stepped on a worn out dime
I bet a nickel i could tell you if it was heads or tails.

I'm not gonna worry wrinkles in my brow
'cause nothin's ever gonna be alright nohow
No matter how i struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive.

(additional verses)
I could buy a sunday suit and it would leave me broke
If it had two pair of pants i would burn the coat
No matter how i struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive.

If it was rainin' gold i wouldn't stand a chance
I wouldn't have a pocket in my patched up pants
No matter how i struggle and strive
I'll never get out of this world alive.
