GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN


I love Jambalaya, crawfish pie and me-oh-my-oh,
Son of a gun, you came a long way from the bayou,

You were dealt your last hand -- aces and eights, all black
At twenty-nine -- we wish that you could come back,

"Hey, Good Lookin'" was a big hit for you,
It's been going strong since before fifty-two,

Now we have a young actor -- his name is Tom Hanks --
And two more generations of country music Hanks.
