Hank Williams - There's A Tear In My Beer Lyrics




There's a tear in my beer
'cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
you are on my lonely mind.
Into these last nine beers
I have shed a million tears.
You are on my lonely mind
I'm gonna keep drinkin'
until I'm petrified.
And then maybe these tears
will leave my eyes.
There's a tear in my beer
cause I'm crying' for you dear
You are on my lonely mind.

Last night I walked the floor
and the night before
You are on my lonely mind.
It seems my life is through
and I'm so doggone blue
You are on my lonely mind.
I'm gonna keep drinkin'
till I can't move a toe
and then maybe my heart
won't hurt me so.
There's a tear in my beer
cause I'm cryin' for you dear
You are on my lonely mind.

Lord, I've tried and I've tried
But my tears I can't hide
You are on my lonely mind.
All these blues that I've found
Have really got me down
You are on my lonely mind
I'm gonna keep drinkin' till I can't even think
Cause in the last week I ain't slept a wink
There's a tear in my beer
cause I'm crying for you dear
You are on my lonely mind.

  5. Joel Bowling

    I get teared up as well as Hank Jr gets to sing along with his Dad Hank Sr...

  6. Lil Ak

    i sit here and think about wen hank was in the studio wat if he was sittin there watching it laughing cuz hes singin with his daddy and the studio people are thinkin about how fake it looks and how the special effects could have been better but hank didnt care for him it was somethin he wish was real but he knos its not but him thinkin of the video of an adaptation of wat would be happening if his daddy was still alive made him happy.. puts a beer in my tear everytime

  7. Terry C.

    This has got to be one of the best videos ever and one of the best editing jobs ever! 2 great singers together. I have always liked this video. I grew up listening to Hank Sr and I'm almost 58 now.

  8. Will Morgan

    Great clip!

  9. h0gwartz

    This is the song that music videos were made for.

  10. random person 907

    It would be cool if hank Williams he and hank the third did this

  11. Ricky Castillo

    I get teary eyed everytime I watch this video.

  12. Diamond King kyle

    Its beautiful the way he opens that door and smile to see his dad its such a wonderful talent

  13. Vavilondon

    is it Flight of the Conchords?

  14. blueticecho

    Had he not be a junior this clown would be refueling rigs at some truck stop..

  15. DOLLARTREEPUZZLE X

    Michael and sonny franzese right here

  16. Shawn Tannehill

    1:33 I love the smile he gives his dad.

  17. David Knowles

  18. ruby jean ruby jean

    How Lovely ... Father n Son !

  19. Karla Staley

    I quit drinkin started smokin n there's still a million tears in my drink I'm slow I believe in love so I drained the Dr pepper and Mt dew last night

  20. ProudKansan08

    I like both of them, but, I've always thought they look NOTHING alike. I wonder if they did a paternity test? I know Jett, his illegitimate sister looks more like Hank, Sr., than Junior does, but, oh, well, genetics---its like a box of chocolates. You don't know what you're going to get. LOL! One of my favorite songs and I'm not that much of a country/western fan, but, I LOVE this song and play it a lot!! Someone mentioned it was the best duet ever, and I tend to agree!! Its tied with Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole with "Unforgettable".

    Max Fiore

    Trust me, they are father and son, look up a picture of Hank Williams III and he looks exactly like Hank Sr.

  21. ads ds

    Grammy award 1990

  22. Ron Laufenberg

    Great song great singers.

  23. GOP. Fam _2016- Timothy

    Hank sr doesn’t sound like he’s from Alabama or West Virginia at all, he sounds more like from Texas if you ask me...

  24. Bonnie Maynard

  25. Jeff Sinclair

    when I was a kid my friend used to sing this but he said "there's a steer in my beer." I didn't know better and just figured it was how real hard country dudes drank their beer.

  26. ni200

    There's a tear in my beer
    Cause I'm cryin for you, dear
    You are on my lonely mind
    Into these last nine beers
    I have shed a million tears
    You are on my lonely mind

    I'm gonna keep drinkin'
    Until I'm petrified
    And then maybe, these tears will leave my eyes
    There's a tear in my beer
    'Cause I'm cryin' for you, dear
    You are on my lonely mind

    Last night I walked the floor
    And the night before
    You were on my lonely mind
    It seems my life is through
    And I'm so dog gone blue
    You are on my lonely mind

    I'm gonna keep drinkin
    Til I can't move a toe
    And then maybe, my heart won't hurt me so
    There's a tear in my beer
    'Cause I'm crying for you, dear
    You are on my lonely mind

    Lord, I've tried and I've tried
    But my tears, I can't hide
    You are on my lonely mind
    All these blues that I've found
    Have really got me down
    You are on my lonely mind

    I'm gonna keep drinkin
    'Til I can't even think
    'Cause in the last week, I ain't slept a week
    There's a tear in my beer
    'Cause I'm crying for you, dear
    You are on my lonely mind

  27. Zoraida García

    Yes, all the emotions that appear when you watch this video about this loving father and his very dear son. Only the dislikes I don't understand and I believe everyone is entitled to his opinion, but many times I think they do it just to feel "on stage". Kindest greetings from Puerto Rico!!! 1/1/2020

  28. James Cole

    The best song of All time

  41. Ross Mark

    I feel the same as most everybody. I remember the day this video came out.
    I love the look on Hank Junior‘s face at 1:44 when he sees elated to see his dad.
    It’s still poignant and very moving even in 2019!

  42. Johnny Badcheck & The Bouncers

    Listening to this song brings so many thoughts to mind. What an amazing video and touching way to show appreciation to his father.
    Here’s a tribute our lead singer did to all three Hanks. https://youtu.be/O0QakdLqN0g

  49. Christopher Green

    This was my late uncle's favorite song by the great Hank Williams. Every Friday we would sit in his home workshop and drink a beer and when this song would come on we would both sing our hearts out to this song...... Now when I'm missing him I turn this have a beer and sing as I cry about the best drinking buddy I have ever had. Miss you Uncle Rick

  50. Ray Lewis

    Sr. Yes. Jr. No!

  51. Rodrigo Samano

    Best music video hands down

  52. Benton Shelton

    I wish I could have met my real grandfather, and played this song with him. Hits me right in the heart I never got to meet the man I'm apparently exactly like. Lloyd Shelton, I'll play this song, and dedicate it to you every time.

  53. Lenoir Aliette M.L.

    I always love like crazy that video, its so perfect,  amazing, like a twilight zone movie - most of all and I love Bocephus  in that video, he trim his mustache - now we could see his mouth, he's so cute with that shave mustache - - we could see his sexy Lips when he sings. I love this. hhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  54. James Bass

    Those dislikes are rude and shameful. I wish Hank Williams could've played with Jr like this so bad. I would've loved that masterpiece

  55. Geoffrey Hansell

    Dang it! Something is in my eye. Could be a tear... I love this video. Hank Jr. smiling at his father is so touching.

  64. m2d2

    Dad and i used to sing this song in the middle of the night while driving from Omaha to Texarkana. I'd be in the back seat of the grand Marquis belting it out and everyone else in the car passed out except for my dad and i. Gosh this song means so much.

  85. lynne aaron

    I loved hank williams sr music just like i love his.

  86. Tyler Dixon

    When I first heard this version of the song I was thinking it was just Jr. Paying tribute to his father by singing his song, which it still is, but when Hank Sr. started singing it was like hearing a ghost. Instant chills and goosebumps. I had no idea there was a music video but my God when Jr opened that door and smiled at his dad was one of the most heartwarming things ever and made my eyes water. Hands down one of the most thoughtful music vids ever.

  87. Trish Ladouceur

    Omg! Best video ever! Brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it.thank you, thank you! Must have been super special for Jr. to see after it was put together too. Happy tears!

  88. Mr. Classic

  89. Mulder Scully

    His dad would have been proud.

  90. Cissie Poorman

    I feel for you honey. my parents were and are hank Williams... I don't know. At the time they're crazy over hank. Now my dad is in his late 80s and mom early 80s. They said they Hank Williams was their party music. We can't judge ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤Oh. Earlier we were talking about his mom having a crush on my. dad. Geez. I know crazy right. She was crushing on my dad...
    She passed away 20 years ago
    And my parents are still happening together ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  91. Hollys Buddy

    Let's face it Hank Williams is the closet thing we will ever get to God on this earth of ours. Magnificent singer and songwriter! The bloody best in fact! EVER!

    Mr. Classic

    Hank was a pretty bad singer tbh. Jr was the best of the 3 as far as skill

  92. Joshua Waltz

    Just a once in a lifetime video. Man Hank and his dad have both left a hell of a legacy.
