I would have loved to have been in the room when Hank Williams sang that song you posted above. Is the title of the tune "Rocking Chair"?
Rocking Alone in an Old Rocking Chair is the title. Hank Snow did a version of it later on (I believe).
Hank was performing daily on WSFA radio in the late 30's/early 40's as a teen. There was a radio store I think next door and the owner managed to make some recordings of songs Hank did on the air. Nothing professional obviously. Most of what exists is in pretty terrible shape but it's still Hank!
