Help Me Understand

Hank Williams


5 Oct 1978
cd imgTROUBLE NO MORE 1979/1981 THE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 13

  Soundcheck, Largo MD - 5.oct.1978 

Take me and lead me and hold to my hand
Heavenly Father help me understand

Take me and lead me and hold to my hand
Heavenly Father help me understand

Yes i'd like to tell you a story
Of a family I once knew
We'll call them William and Mary
And their little daughter Sue

Now Mary was just a average type wife
And Bill was just a usual dad
And they had their little family arguments
But neither one every got mad

Then one day something happened
It was nothin' of course
But one word lead to another
And the last word lead to a divorce

Now here's two grown up people
Who failed to use common sense
They strengthened their own selfish pride
At little Sue's expense

You know she didn't ask to be brought to this world
To drift from pillar to post
But a divorce never stops to consider
The ones that it's hurtin' the most

There's be a lot more honest lovin'
In this true ol' world today
If just a few parted parents
Could hear little Sue say

Take me, lead me, hold to my hand
Heavenly Father help me understand

Take me and lead me and hold to my hand
Heavenly Father help me understand
Take me and lead me and hold to my hand
Heavenly Father help me understand.
