Original video
I'd've 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
And I'd of kept the coffee strong
Oh, I could've kept him hanging on
If I'd've been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

"We gotta be in Ohio by tomorrow night
And 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, no"

I'd've 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've been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

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

I'd've 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
And I'd've kept the coffee strong
Oh, I could've kept him hanging on
If I'd've been in the back
Of Hank's Cadillac

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