    "Howlin' at the Moon" Lyrics

    Hank Williams Sr. feat. Hank Williams Jr.

    (Hank Williams)

    I know there's never been a man in the awful shape I'm in
    I can't even spell my name my head's in such a spin
    Today I tried to eat a steak with a big old table spoon
    You got me chasin' rabbits, walkin' on my hands and howlin' on the moon.

    Well Sug, I took one look at you and it almost drove me mad
    And then I even want and lost what little sense I had
    Now I can't tell the day from night I'm crazy as a loon
    You got me chasin' rabbits. pullin' out my hair and howlin' at the moon.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Some friends of mine asked me to go out on a huntin' spree
    'Cause there ain't a hounddog in this state that can hold a light to me
    I ate three bones for dinner today and tried to tree a coon
    You got me chasin' rabbits, I'm cratchin' fleas and howlin' at the moon.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I rode my horse to town today and a gaspump we did pass
    I pulled him up and I hollered whoa and said fill him up with gas
    The man picked up a monkey wrench and wham he changed my tune
    You got me chasin' rabbitts, spittin' out teeth and howlin' at the moon.

    I never thought in this old world a fool could fall so hard
    But honey baby when I fell the whole world must have jarred
    I think I'd quit my doggish ways if you'd take me for your goom
    You got me chasin' rabbitts, pickin' out rings and howlin' at the moon...
