Ashley Monroe - Hank's Cadillac Lyrics




[Chorus:]
I'd of kept him up all night
I wouldn't let him close his eyes
Made him sing "I Saw The Light"
'Til he sobered up again
I'd of kept the coffee strong
Oh I could've kept him hanging on
If I'd of been in the back
Of Hank's cadillac

I gotta be in Ohio by tomorrow night
Hank you've gotta get up on that stage
You can't let all those good people down
No it just ain't right
To book a show and not show up to play

[Repeat Chorus]

When his hands started trembling
And his body turning cold
And death started tugging at his soul
I'd of found one of his songs playing on that a.m. radio
Held him tight and begged him not to go
I'd of held him tight and begged him not to go

[Repeat Chorus]

He'd had lived to play more songs
Oh I could've kept him hanging on
If I'd of been in the back
Of Hank's cadillac

Ashley Monroe Hank's Cadillac Comments
  1. Tess Jones

    Ashley Monroe has such a gorgeous Tone . Love her music.

  2. David Glasspool

    Really love this song. But A better idea would be to get in the front seat and drive to the hospital.

  3. Exaotic

    10 years and not even 100,000 views. What a shame.

  4. Toby Redhead

    She deserves her on playlist on my roster. What a voice. One of the greats!!

  5. Layla Reeves

    Wow where has she been all my life?

  6. michael mcdaniel

    I love this song it so sad but beautiful with meaning

  7. Travis Cline

    Lord thank you for Ashley Monroe, she has blessed country music!

    countrygirl country musiclover

    Travis Cline she ain't even CLOSE to the only female in today's country who has blessed the country genre. Check out EQUALLY as talented and EQUALLY as country females from today named Lindsay ell Lauren alaina carrie underwood miranda lambert (who is actually super close friends with Ashley. Ashley and miranda have a side trio called pistol annies with another female named angaleena presley) maren Morris Kelsea ballerini Karen Fairchild the brunette from little big town Kimberly schlapman the blonde from little big town hillary Scott from lady antebellum. ALL of those girls have blessed country EQUALLY just as much as Ashley has

    Exaotic

    countrygirl country musiclover Please no. Carrie is the hottest, but she's pop. The rest are country pop. This is country.

  8. dreadpyratebubbles

  9. Jamie Johnson

    Michaela Rakosova BITCH TAKE THOSE FUCKING USELESS LYRICS AND SHOVE EM UP YOUR ASS. EITHER POST SOMETHING USEFUL ABOUT THE SONG OR DON'T POST ANYTHING. IF WE WANT THE LYRICS WE WILL LISTEN TO ASHLEY'S MOUTH DUMB BITCH. IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW ASHLEY IS A BORN AND RAISED AMERICAN CITIZEN FROM TENNESSEE. SHE SPEAKS AND SINGS ENGLISH MORE PERFECT THAN ANY OTHER LANGUAGE. SHE HAS THE ENGLISH LYRICS THAT YOUR PSYCHOTIC TIME WASTING NO LIFE ASS JUST POSTED. WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU POST THE EXACT SAME THING AS WHAT JUST CAME OUT OF HER MOUTH YOU DUMB BITCH

  11. James w

    unreal voice, your gunna go places ashley, you really do sound extremely like lee ann womack 

  12. aflores1078

    Because nobody knows who the fuck Hank is these days.

    Charlie Woods

    bounddrummer most point to him being the centerpiece of all genres of music since his untimely death. Some 64 years later. There's only 9 minutes of him performing live known to the world. There isn't a list that's made he isn't top 5 country artist of all time (his genre was actually hillbilly since country western wasn't the term until a few years later).

    Brooke Metz

    bounddrummer amen

    countrygirl country musiclover

  13. ficyn1

    Now thats a voice

  14. Yvette Stout

    So sad....he was TOO YOUNG :(

  15. Bevie Arlene

    The guy who decided to not release Ashley Monroe's CD didn't have a brain! Like what an idiot! Clearly no idea about what country music is.

  16. Zoo of blue eyes

    and angaleena

  17. Para Bellum

    Wow I absolutely love her voice

  18. DuncanMotorsportsFan

    my new favorite, singer-songwriter....Ashley fan from here on out !

  19. humbucker101

  20. Ellen

    this gave me chills.

  21. Gray Storm

    Hmm,,,,DANG....someone is holding this young lady back!! AWESOME sound...am SO glad she's with Pistol Annies now!! That is true country music!

    countrygirl country musiclover

    Gray Storm this is no more or less country than anything from any female on country radio these days

  22. jhhi44

    She is in Pistol Annies with Miranda now

  23. tara loretta

    o yes she will have a career she already does!!!! ashley is awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. 001tucker

    This Woman is the real deal . She'll never have a great career . Careers belong to drugstore cowboys today , how sad . Love this song !

    Christian

    I think her career has been pretty damn good!

  25. Christina Burda

    i love her voice she sounds so much like lee ann womack when she was younger this is such a pretty song

  26. Cassie Foster

    she opened for jewel last night :]

    she had some tuning problems with her guitar and no one would help here which i thought was pretty ridiculous, but she ended up singing one of her songs acapella :]

    she's really good.

    Stanley Freeman

    Love the song

  27. shaq142

    The song is available in online stores like amazon and itunes.

  28. skaggs34

    ive said it before on here, but she sounds SO MUCH like a young lee ann womack. and man can she write. ever now and then the "nashville music machine" politics lets a truly great album slip through the cracks. this one is one of those. Sony still owns the record, but you may very well never see it physically released.

  29. goneloopy26

    this is the best song I have ever heard!

  30. Fiona_Goode

    i just saw her open for sara evans .. great job :D

  31. Countrydiva524

    THANKS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH I love this song

  32. Coolidge

    get this woman's album out now..what a great song and a perfect tribute.
