Well I heard that he walked on whiskey but kept the Lord close by his side
Her cheatin' and her cold, cold heart taught him how to cry
Verse on verse soaked in hurt of sinners and of saints
That's the Gospel according to Hank

You can hear him at the alters where liquid spirits flow
With a choir of honky-tonk angels and sawdust on the floor
Some try to write just like him but heaven knows they can't
That's the Gospel according to Hank

[Chorus]
Mind Your Own Business is a song we could use more of these days
He's got us singing the Love Sick Blues out on the lost highways
He wrote I Saw The Light to get forgiveness and give thanks
That's the Gospel according to Hank

Listen brothers and sisters to the words of Luke the drifter
Who taught us how to judge not so we would not be judged
The message came from a higher power the music made us think
That's the Gospel according to Hank

[Chorus]
Mind Your Own Business is a song we could use more of these days
He's got us singing the Love Sick Blues out on the lost highways
He wrote I Saw The Light to get forgiveness and give thanks
That's the Gospel according to Hank
That's The Gospel according to Hank
