These Chains From My Heart” was one of the last songs recorded by Hank
Williams. The song was written by Fred Rose and Hy Heath. After Hank’s death
and the record became a hit, rumor circulated that Hank had showed the song to
Fred Rose who rewrote it and took Hank’s name off the song after Hank’s
death. But those who knew Fred Rose argued that Rose was not the kind of
person to do that and would never have stolen from Hank Williams or anyone else.

tribute to Hank Williams.

it to number one, where it stayed for four weeks. It was Hank’s 36th
charted song and his last number one. It was on the charts for 13 weeks.
