Archives: The Infamous Drunk Hank Concert

I've reposted this so many times, but I can't help it. It's so damn funny.


Hank Williams Jr. - Sonny Boy Can Bely

Hank likes drinking.
Hank Jr's drunken 1992 Kansas City concert is something of a legend, which I only heard about this past weekend. Recordings of it have made the rounds on the interwebs before. Anyway, Hank is blasted out of his mind and slurs, cusses, makes up words and cusses some more. It's a glorious trainwreck. For your listening pleasure, I've included a link to Bocephus' take on "A Country Boy Can Survive" (which, in parts, is sung "sonny boy can bely"). I've also made an attempt at transcribing what exactly came out of his mouth that night. Enjoy! (?)

Nov. 7, 2016 Update.... the link to the actual mp3 is long dead, but here's a YouTube of some of the songs, including the below transcribed gem.

Sonny Boy Can Bely

Eyuh, this here's Derrick Thomas this here's Hank Williams Jr.
