Weary Blues ~ Hank Williams song on CBG and Iowa Saxophone

Sorry about the wind noise.

The snow falls 'round my window
But it can't chill my heart
God knows it died the day you left
My dream world fell apart

Weary blues from waitin'
Lord, I've been waitin' too long
These blues have got me cryin'
Oh, sweet mama, please, come home

Through tears, I watch young lovers
As they go strolling by
Oh, all the things that might have been
God, forgive me if I cry

Weary blues from waitin'
Lord, I've been waitin' too long
These blues have got me cryin'
Oh, sweet mama, please, come home

Thanks, Clarky.  Hank had songs that stand the test of time.

The wind just adds to the atmosphere of the song.  Never heard that one, but great playing and singing as always John.

Thank you, Buggy.  That's black and white with a blue filter - part of the Windows Movie Maker that came with my old computer.
