Alone & Forsaken

Alone & Forsaken was one of the last songs ever written and performed by Hank Williams before his passing at 29 years old. Having only recorded it through a demo session, it appears from time to time on bootlegs and unreleased albums. Like the passed down blues songs from yesterday, many artists have covered it as well. Featured here are Hank’s own followed by Townes Van ZandtChet Atkins, and Social Distortion. Haunting yet beautiful medlody and lyrics.
