With all due respect to Bob Wills and Waylon, Hank Williams Sr. will always be the king of country music as far as I’m concerned. He has been the epitome of country music for me since my best friend introduced me to his music in high school.
Hank wrote a lot of hits. But, to me, the perfect Hank Williams song, and the one that has always stirred my soul the most, is Alone and Forsaken. It has every bit of pathos Hank could muster and nothing else.
Alone and Forsaken is one of Hank’s harder to find songs. But you can find it on the album The Original Singles Collection . . . Plus.
