"The thing about Hank Williams is not only did he make great records but the songs were great and can be performed by so many people. In "Cold, Cold Heart", as with so many others he is answering the question of Robert De Niro: He is talking to you and it’s a strict one-on-one experience. And he starts singing and you just listen. He's got no fat in his lyrics. Goes straight to the point, and musically in "Cold, Cold Heart" there’s such a swing of the lines and a glide in the notes that everything seems to follow its predecessor automatically, it’s almost as if the song just existed and was discovered like an element in the periodic table. And that was the songwriting skill of Hank Williams."
