Jimmy says Hank started off well, but after about 30 minutes it was obvious something was wrong, and Hank started shaking.

1You got to have smelt a lot of mule manure before you can sing like a hillbilly.
2I was a pretty good imitator of Roy Acuff, but then I found out they already had a Roy Acuff, so I started singin' like myself.
