Hank WIlliams:An Impoverished Life in Wealth & Fame

You'll cry and cry and try to sleep
But sleep won't come the whole night through
Your cheatin' heart will tell on you.
Composed and sung by Hank Williams

"In the early morning of New Year’s Day, 1953, chauffeur Charles Carr pulled his Cadillac into the lot of a drive-in movie theater in Oak Hill, West Virginia, to check on his passenger, the country-music superstar Hank Williams, who had not moved in the back seat for hours as they drove from Knoxville, Tennessee, to Canton, Ohio. Carr discovered that Williams wasn’t breathing. His skin was blue and cold. The music legend was dead at 29 years old." More at The Miserable Life, Death and Immortality of Hank Williams.
