Whiskey River Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

I'm drowning in a whiskey river,
Bathing my mem'ried mind in the wetness of its soul.
Feeling the amber current flowin' from my mind.
And warm an empty heart you left so cold.

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

[Instrumental]

I'm drowning in a whiskey river,
Bathing my mem'ried mind in the wetness of its soul.
Feeling the amber current flowin' from my mind.
And warm an empty heart you left so cold.

Whiskey River take my mind,
Don't let her mem'ry torture me.
Whiskey River don't run dry,
You're all I've got, take care of me.

Sad Songs And Waltzes Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

I'm writing a song all about you a true song as real as my tears
But you've no need to fear it cause no one will hear it
Cause sad songs and waltzes aren't selling this year
I'll tell all about how you cheated I'd like to the whole world to hear
I'd like to get even with you cause you're leavin'
And songs and waltzes aren't selling this year
It's a good thing that I'm not a star you don't know how lucky you are
Though my record may say it no one will play it
Cause sad songs and waltzes aren't selling this year
[steel]
Well it's a good thing...

Local Memory Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

The lights go out each evening at eleven
And up and down our block there's not a sound
I close my eyes and search for peaceful slumber
And just then the local mem'ry comes around
Piles of blues against the door to make sure sleep will come no more
He's the hardest working mem'ry in this town
Turns out happiness againand then lets loneliness back in
And each night the local mem'ry comes around

[guitar]

Each day I say tonight I may escape him
I pretend I'm happy and never even a frown
But at night I close my eyes and pray sleep finds me
But again the local mem'ry comes around
Rids the house of all good news then sets out my crying shoes
What a faithful mem'ry never lets me down
We're both up till light of day chasing happiness away
And each night the local mem'ry comes around
And each night the local mem'ry comes around

Slow Down Old World Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

Slow down slow down old world
There's no hurry cause
My life ain't mine anymore
I lived too fast
Now it's too late to worry
And I'm too blue to cry anymore
I once was a fool for the women
Now I'm just a fool nothing more
So slow down slow down old world
There's no hurry cause
My life ain't mine anymore

[steel - strings]

I once had a way with the women
Till one got away with my heart
So slow down slow down old world
There's no hurry cause
My life ain't mine anymore
Cause my life ain't mine anymore

Can't go home if you're goin' by the mill
Cause the bridge's washed out
At the bottom of the hill
Big Creek's up Little Creek's level
Plow my corn with a double shovel
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

Sittin' in the window singin' to my love
Slop bucket fell from the window up above
Mule and the grasshopper eatin' ice cream
Mule got sick so they laid him on the green
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

[guitar]

Well you ought to see my Blue Eyed Sally
She lives away down on Shinbone Alley
Number on the gate the number on the door
The next house over is the grocery store
Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

[guitar]

Stay all night stay a little longer
Dance all night dance a little longer
Pull off your coat throw it in the corner
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer
Don't see why you can't stay a little longer

Devil In A Sleepin' Bag Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

We were headed home in Austin
Caught pneumonia on the road
Taking it home to Connie and the kids
A wheel ran off and jumped a railroad
Then ran through a grocery store

If you want to buy a bus I'm taking bids
And the devil shivered in his sleeping bag
He said traveling on the road is such a drag
If we can make it home by Friday we can brag
And the devil shivered in his sleeping bag

[guitar]

Well I just got back from New York City
Kris and Rita done it all
Raw perfection there for all the world to see
Lord I heard an angel singing
In the Philharmonic Hall
Rita Coolidge Rita Coolidge cleft for me
And the devil shivered...
And the devil shivered in his sleeping bag

She's Not For You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

Pay no mind to her she only wants to play
But she's not for you she's not for you
And I'm the only one who would let her act this way
But she's not for you she's not for you
She just looks for greener pastures now and then
And when she grows tired she knows Old Faithful will just take her back again
So just leave her here I'm used to feeling blue
But she's not for you she's not for you
[guitar]
So she told you she found heaven in your eyes
Well I think it only fair to warn you that sometimes she lies
But it's your heart I can't tell you what to do
But she's not for you she's not for you
She's not for you she's not for you

Bubbles In My Beer Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

Tonight in a bar alone
I'm sitting apart from
The laughter and the cheer
Scenes from the past
Rise before me while
Watching the bubbles in my beer
Visions of someone
Who loved me brings
Along salty tears to my eyes
And I know that my life's
Been a failure
Watching the bubbles in my beer

I'm seeing the road
That I've travelled
A road paved
With heartaches and tears
And I'm seeing the past
That I've wasted
Watching the bubbles in my beer
Visions of someone who loved me...

You Look Like The Devil Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

You look like the devil in the morning you've been out a working through the night
Holdin' hands and kissin' everybody I'm glad to say that you can't blow my mind

You look like the devil when you're cryin' I'm so glad that you feel so strong that way
You got a great big smile for everybody I'm so glad I've met you yesterday
[steel]
You look like the devil in the morning...
[guitar]
You look like the devil when you're cryin'...
I'm so glad I've met you yesterday

So Much To Do Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

My oatmeal tastes just like confetti the coffee's too strong so forget it
The toast is burning well let it there's just so much to do since you've gone
Too much to do all alone
My tie's lost I can't find the sweater there's the doorbell I hope that's your letter
My head aches I hope I feel better there's just so much to do since you've gone
Too much to do all alone
So much to do since you've gone too much to do all alone
And time time rolls on like a river and oh there's just so much to do
And I just can't do without you

A Song For You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Shotgun Willie

Well I've been a lot of places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs and I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my love in stages with ten thousand people watchin'
Now we're alone and I am singin' my song for you
And I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I've treated you unkindly but darling can't you see
No one more important to me darling can't you please see through me
Cause now we're alone and I am singing my song for you
Well you taught me precious secrets of a truth with holding nothin'
You came out in front but I was hiding
Now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding
And I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing my song for you
And we were alone and I was singing my song for you

I'd be the last one to tell you that you shouldn't go
And the first to say be happy if you can
But you lie and hurt someone who needs and loves you so
Do you mind too much if I don't understand

I suppose that you're convinced this is the thing to do
Life is short and sweet break all the hearts you can
I guess I shouldn't be surprised it's all a game to you
But do you mind too much if I don't understand

Forgive me but it all seems so unreal to me
And my heart and me we'd made so many plans
But that's all over now there's nothing left to do
But do you mind too much if I don't understand

Do you mind too much if I don't understand

How Long Is Forever Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

I fell too hard and much too deep in love with you
I let you come and go at will it seems
You're back again this time you say forever
But I wonder just how long forever means
How long is forever this time
How long until one night you don't come home again
How long is forever this time how long until I'm all alone again

People say I'm foolish when I take you back
And it could be they're right but who can say
You'll be welcome here within my arms forever
Even when forever ends for me today
How long is forever this time...

I'm A Worried Man Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman
(feat. Toots Hibbert)

Worried man worried man I'm a weary worried man
Hungry babies don't understand papa is a worried man

The place I used to draw my pay slammed the door on me today
And told me just to stay away and no come back again
I went back home to bring the news my woman saw that I had the blues
But she said the babies need new shoes and I'm a worried man

Worried man worried man...

[Guitar]

Well there is no way that I can see that I can feed my family
Cause I don't own no money tree and very little lam
But I said mama don't you cry I'll get a job up fore the day's gone by
I don't know where though and that is why I'm a worried man

Worried man worried man...
Worried man worried man...

The Harder They Come Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

Well they tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall,
One and all
Ooh the harder they come the harder they'll fall,
One and all

Well the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done

'Cause as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall,
One and all
Ooh the harder they come the harder they'll fall,
One and all

And I keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead you can't
But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now of what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they'll fall,
One and all
Ooh the harder they come the harder they'll fall,
One and all

Something To Think About Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

You're wondering just what I'll do now that it's over and done
Well that's something to think about and I've already begun
I suppose that I'll find a way people usually do
But it's something to think about I'll be lost without you

One thing I would have you do please consider the dawn
The dawn of your lonely years when youth and beauty are gone
And when you can no longer have any sweetheart you choose
Here is something to think about I'll still be thinking of you
One thing I would have you do...

Sitting In Limbo Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

Sitting here in limbo, but I know it won't be long
Sitting here in limbo, like a bird without a song
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting here in limbo, waiting for the dice to roll
Sitting here in limbo, got some time to search my soul
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

I don't know where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo knowing that I have to go
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

I don't know where life will lead me
But I know where I've been
I can't say what life will show me
But I know what I've seen
Tried my hand at love and friendship
But all that is passed and gone
This little boy is moving on

Sitting here in limbo waiting for the tide to flow
Sitting here in limbo knowing that I have to go
Well, they're putting up resistance
But I know that my faith will lead me on

Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo
Sitting in limbo, sitting in limbo
Sitting in limbo limbo limbo...

Darkness On The Face Of The Earth Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

The morning that you left me was just another day
How could I see the sorrow that had found me
Then you left and told me that I was in your way
And I turned and ran as heaven fell around me
I stumbled through the darkness my footsteps were unsure
I live within a world that had no sunshine
When you left me darling my world came to an end
And there was darkness on the face of the earth
The stars fell out of heaven and the moon could not be found
The sun was in a million pieces scattered all around
Why did you ever leave me you knew how it would hurt
And now there's darkness on the face of the earth
[guitar]
The stars fell out of heaven...
And now there's darkness on the face of the earth

One In A Row Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

If you can truthfully say that
You've been true just one day
Well that makes one in a row
One in a row, one in a row
And if you can look into my eyes
One time without telling lies
Well that makes one in a row
One in a row, one in a row
Why do I keep loving you after all

The things you do
And just one time come into my arms
And be glad that you're in my arms
That will make one in a row
One in a row, one in a row
Why do I keep lovin' you...
One in a row, one in a row

I've Just Destroyed The World Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

The sun just went behind a cloud
There's darkness all around me now
For I've just destroyed the world I'm livin' in
I broke her heart so many times
That now at last I've broken mine
And I've just destroyed the world I'm livin' in

What made me think that I could go on hurting her
I should have known there'd have to be an end
But fools in love are taught by fate,
They never learn till it's too late
And I've just destroyed the world I'm livin' in
[Repeat]

You Left Me A Long, Long Time Ago Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

You tell me today that you're leaving
But just think a while
I'm sure that you must know
Today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

Today's just the day that ends it all
Except the usual mem'ries
That always linger on
And today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

I stood with helpless hands
And watched me lose your love
A little more each day
Then it was gone
And I kept wond'rin'
Just how long until this day would come
Just how long could your pride keep hangin' on

So please don't say you're sorry
Don't say anything
Don't try to say why you must leave
Just go
And today might be the day that you walk away
But you left me a long, long time ago

I Guess I've Come To Live Here Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

I guess I've come to live here in your eyes.
This must be the place called paradise.
You are so precious to me,
What a special time within our lives.
And I guess I've come to live here in your eyes.

A thousand times I see you
And a thousand times you take my breath away.
Fears and doubts consume me and I'm afraid someone will take it all away.
I hope we're here forever, but I guess it's time that we both realized.
That I guess I've come to live here in your eyes.

I guess I've come to live here in your eyes.
This must be the place called paradise.
You are so precious to me,
What a special time within our lives.
And I guess I've come to live here in your eyes.

A thousand times I see you
And a thousand times you take my breath away.
Fears and doubts consume me and I'm afraid someone will take it all away.
I hope we're here forever, but I guess it's time that we both realized.
That I guess I've come to live here in your eyes.

Undo The Right Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Countryman

If you can't say you love me say you hate me
And that you regret each time you held me tight
If you can't be mine forever please forsake me
If you can't undo the wrong undo the right
It was right when you loved me only
But wrong when you held another tight
And before you go away and leave me lonely
If you can't undo the wrong undo the right
It's too late to say your heart is filled with sorrow
You can't undo what's done why do you try
And before you go away and leave me lonely
If you can't undo the wrong undo the right
[steel]
It's too late to say...
And if you can't undo the wrong undo the right

Not That I Care Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

So you saw her last night with her new love
Yes they tell me they make quite a pair
And that they both look happy together
I just wonder not that I care

Tell me did she look lovely as ever
Like an angel with golden hair
Does she still close her eyes when she dances
I just wonder not that I care

Once I thought I couldn't live without her
Funny how wrong I could be
Now I hardly ever think about her
What she does doesn't mean a thing to me

Well it's late so I guess I'll be going
Too much smoke what I need is some air
By the way did she ask you about me
I just wonder not that I care
I just wonder not that I care

Take Me In Your Arms Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

Take me in your arms and hold me
Like I've been holding you in my heart
Take me in your arms and tell me
That you've missed me since we've been apart.

You just don't know how heartsick
And lonesome I've been
Or how much I've prayed
That you'll come back again.

And take me in your arms and hold me
Like I've been holding you in my heart.

(You just don't know how heartsick)
(And lonesome I've been)
Or how much I've prayed
That you'll come back again.

And take me in your arms and hold me
Like I've been holding you in my heart...

You Don't Know Me Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

You give your hand to me
And then you say hello
And I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me

No you don't know the one
Who thinks of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips
And yearns to hold you tight
To you I'm just a friend
That's all I've ever been
No, you don't know me

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away
Beside that lucky guy
You'll never, never know
The one who loves you so
No, you don't know me

For I never knew the art of making love
Though my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy, I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too

You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away
Beside that lucky guy
Who'll never, never know
The one who loves you so
No, You don't know me

You'll never, ever know
No, you don't know me

Sugar Moon Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
I'll be walkin' with my sugar
'Neath that old sugar moon

All the lovin' I missed
I'll be gettin' it soon
I'll be gettin' it from my sugar
'Neath that old sugar moon

I can see us right now
Get the calendar down
(And) Draw a circle around
The day we're heaven bound
When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
All the birds will be singin'
'Neath that old sugar moon

I can see us right now
Get the calendar down
(And) Draw a circle around
The day we're heaven bound
When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
All the birds will be singin'
'Neath that old sugar moon

When it's sugarcane time
And around about June
I'll be walkin' with my sugar
'Neath that old sugar moon

I Don't Care Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON

Now, I don't care if I'm not the first love you've known,
Just so I'll be the last.
No, I don't care if I'm not the first one you've kissed,
Darling, I'll never ask.

Yesterday's gone,
Love me from now on.
Be true to me,
Forget about the past.

No, I don't care if I'm not the first love you've known,
Just so I'll be the last.

Cherokee Maiden Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

One night when the moon was bright on the moonlit bay.
That is where I found my little Cherokee maid.
The memory of the that night of love, is lingering yet.
And I know I never will forget.

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so.
And though we're far apart.
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her,
For anybody else's heart.
Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip,
And I'll carry her away with me.
And straight as an arrow flies,
We'll ride to paradise,
My sweet little chickadee,
My little Cherokee Maiden and me.

My little Cherokee Maiden, I love her so.
And though we're far apart.
I know I'll never be tradin' my love for her,
For anybody else's heart.
Someday I'll make a trip back to that Cherokee Strip,
And I'll carry her away with me.
And straight as an arrow flies,
We'll ride to paradise,
My sweet little chickadee,
My little Cherokee Maiden and me.

The Warm Red Wine Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

Put a nickel in the jukebox
And let it play
For my heart is troubled with pain
Take the cork from the bottle
Of the warm red wine
And fill my glass up, again.

Fill my glass to the brim
Till it flows o'er the rim
Like the tears flow in this heart of mine
Then I'll say so long
To the dreams that are gone
On account of the warm red wine.

[Instrumental]

Oh, a prison of stone
With it's cold iron bars
Is no more than a prison than mine
I'm a prisoner of drink
Who will never escape
From the chains of the warm red wine.

Oh, the wine is red
So warm and red
Like the ribbon
It sparkles and shines
But I paid for the wine
Yeah, That one red wine
With all of my hopes
And in my dreams...

Miss Molly Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

Oh, have you seen Miss Molly? Her cheeks are rosy red
Now when Miss Molly's smilin' the sun is dim a spell
I'll trade my horse and saddle Cow drivin' I'll resign
Now listen dear Miss Molly I've told you this before

Her lips are soft as satin and they taste like gingerbread
And when she laughs her voice is like a little silver bell
If only Miss Molly will say that she'll be mine
And even tho' I told you so I'll tell you just once more

[Chorus:]
Oh, Oh, Oh, me, oh, my Miss Molly I'm in love with you
Oh, me, oh, my Miss Molly won't you say you love me too

Dusty Skies Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

Dusty skies I can't see nothing in sight
Good old Dan you'll have to guide me right
For we lose our way the cattle will stray
And we lose them all tonight
With all of the grass and water's gone
We'll have to keep the cattle moving on
Sand blowing I just can't breathe in this air
Thought it would soon be clear and fair
But the dust storms were bad they took all we had
I've got to be moving somewhere

I hate to leave the old ranch so bare
But I've got to be moving somewhere
So get along doggies we're moving off of this range
Never thought as how I'd make the change
But the blue skies have failed we're on our last trail
Underneath these dusty skies
These ain't tears in my eyes just sand from these dusty skies

It's All Your Fault Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : You Don't Know Me: The Songs Of Cindy Walker

Hey baby don't you think I know
I've been acting real funny for a week or so
It's not like me to see things through
But I've never seen a sight quite like you
It's time for me to face the facts
I've gone too far and I can't turn back

I'm in love and it's all your fault
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and its all your fault

I've survived behind these walls
Never thought that I could see them fall
Hey now baby, I can't believe
That I give in so easily

The look in your eyes, the feel of your lips
The touch of your skin on my fingertips

I'm in love and it's all your fault
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and its all your fault

Ahh yeah!!
The look in your eyes, the feel of your lips
The touch of your skin on my fingertips

I'm in love and it's all your fault
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and its all your fault

Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and it's all your fault

Yeah!
Turned my head and my heart got caught
Gone, without a thought
I'm in love and it's all your fault

Over You Again Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

I gotta get over you again
I gotta get over you again
I had my heart wide open
And you just walked right on back in

You can't imagine
Just how hard It's been
Now I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again

We never really had a chance
We never really had a chance at all
I was carrying more luggage
Than U-haul truck could haul

And I had It all worked out
We'd only be the best of friends
Now I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again

Maybe I never really got over you at all

And I've been looking in the mirror
Lying like a dog
Supposed to be so easy
Like falling off a log
And I started thinking
Thinking about things that might have been

Now I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again
And I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again

I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again
I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again
I had my heart wide open
And you just walked right on back in
And I gotta get over you
I gotta get over you again

Moment Of Forever Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

Was it wonderful for you
Was it holly as it was for me
Did you feel the hand of destiny
That was guiding us together

You were young enough to dream
And I was old enough to learn something new
I'm so glad I got to dance with you
For a moment of forever

Sometimes when you're cryin you're happy
And sometimes you're just cryin
I know I know

And come whatever happens now
Ain't it nice to know that dreams still come true
I'm so glad that I was close to you
For a moment of forever

Sometimes when you're cryin you're happy
And sometimes you're just cryin
I know I know

And come whatever happens now
Ain't nice to know that dreams still come true
I'm so glad that I was close to you
For a moment of forever

The Bob Song Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever
(originally by Big & Rich)

Well I once knew a Pirate named BOB
B-O-B Bob was a drunken old Slob
B-O-B Bob, 'bout as dumb as a rock
But Bob
He made it to the top

He said: You swing from your tree
And I'll swing from mine
You have your lemons and I'll have my lime
Funny we all act like monkeys sometimes
So you swing from your tree and I'll swing from mine
I'll Swing from mine

He said I'd rather make love than war
And I'd rather have millions than to ever be poor
But I'd rather be happy than to have anymore,
Guess I'm.... a lil tangled in the vine

Oh, You swing from your tree
And I'll swing from mine
You have your lemons and I'll have my lime
Funny we all act like monkeys sometimes
So you swing from your tree and I'll swing from mine
I'll Swing from mine

Louisiana Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

What has happened down here is the wind have changed
Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain
Rained real hard and rained for a real long time
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

The river rose all day
The river rose all night
Some people got lost in the flood
Some people got away alright
The river have busted through cleard down to Plaquemines
Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline

[Chorus:]
Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tyrin' to wash us away
They're tryin' to wash us away
Louisiana, Louisiana
They're tryin' to wash us away
They're tryin' to wash us away

President Coolidge came down in a railroad train
With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand
The President say, "Little fat man isn't it a shame
What the river has done
To this poor crackers land."

[Chorus]

Gravedigger Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

Cyrus Jones 1810 to 1913
Made his great grandchildren believe
He could live to a 103
A hundred and three is forever when you're just a little kid
So, Cyrus Jones lived forever

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Gravedigger

Muriel Stonewall 1903 to 1954
She lost both of her babies in the second great war
Now, you should never have to watch your only children lowered in the ground
That means you should never have to bury your own babies

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Gravedigger

Ring around the rosey
Pocket full o'posey
Ashes to ashes
We all fall down

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Oh Gravedigger

Little Mikey Carson '67 to '75
He rode his bike like the devil until the day he died
When he grows up he wants to be Mr. Vertigo on the flying trapeze
Oh, 1940 to 1992

Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Grave digger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
I can feel the rain
I can feel the rain
Gravedigger
When you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I can feel the rain
Gravedigger
Grave digger'

Keep Me From Blowing Away Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

Well I spent my whole lifetime
In a world where the sunshine
Finds excuses for not hangin' 'round
I squandered emotions
On the slightest of notions
And the first easy loving I found
But soon all the good times
The gay times and play times
Like colors run together and fade
Oh Lord if you hear me
Touch me and hold me
And keep me from blowing away

There's times when I trembled
When my mind remembered
The days that just crumbled away
With nothing to show
But these lines that I know
Are beginning to show in my face

Oh Lord if you're listening
I know I'm no Christian
And I ain't got much coming to me
So send down some sunshine
Throw out your lifeline
And keep me from blowing away

Oh Lord if you hear me
Touch me and hold me
And keep me from blowing away

Takin' On Water Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

You ain't nothin' but trouble, far as I can tell
Just a wasted wish in the wishin' well
But you don't know, I've been here before
I'm just one too many miles from shore

And I'm takin' on water and I'm goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Oh, I'm already in, in too deep
I know you won't be there to rescue me
I'm already feel it, right through my chest
I'm afraid if I taste it, I might not catch my breath

And I'm takin' on water and I'm goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Why is a woman always thinkin'
Just because a man is sinkin'
He's gonna drown

But I'm takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water, there's only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

And I'm takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out

And nothing ever goes away
Everything is here to stay
And it's always now

Sing it like a melody
There's really only you and me
And it's always now
There's really only you and me
And it's always now

I'm Alive Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

It's so damn easy to say that life's so hard
Everybody's got their share of battle scars
As for me, I'd like to thank my lucky stars
That I'm alive and well

And it'd be easy to add up all the pain
And all the dreams you sat and watched go up in flames
You were on, on the wreckage as it smolders in the rain
But not me, I'm alive

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing, can't you see?
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
And I'm alive and well, God, I'm alive and well

Stars are dancing on the water here tonight
It's good for the soul when there's not a soul in sight
This boat has caught it's wind and brought me back to life
Now I'm alive and well

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathing in and out's a blessing, can't you see?
Today is the first day of the rest of my life
And I'm alive and well, God, I'm alive and well

Front porch sittin in an old rockin chair
The sun is hot in the Texas sky
Garden growin clothes out on the line
Dusty road when a car goes by

Story tellin of days long ago
And the only place she'd ever been
Singin softly This World Is Not My Home
Memories take me back again

When I was young and Grandma wasn't old
When she guided me as I watched life unfold
Anything we didn't have we didn't really need to hold
When I was young and Grandma wasn't old

She'd throw a party and all of her friends
Would gather around the quilting frames
They'd always call out for me to come inside
And give me nickels and dimes to sing

It makes me happy that I can still go back
My memories are so clear
Of how It used to be when I never dreamed
Of ever lookin back from here

When I was young and Grandma wasn't old
When she guided me as I watched life unfold
Anything we didn't have we didn't really need to hold
When I was young and Grandma wasn't old
When I was young and Grandma wasn't old

Worry B Gone Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

Give me just one more sip of that Worry B Gone

I'm planning on feelin' much better before too long
Got a world of trouble, that I need to forget
I'm on my way, but I ain't there yet

Give me just one more sip of that Worry B Gone

Everywhere I look, trouble is all I see
Can't listen to the radio, I can't stand TV
I've got trouble with the air, trouble with the water
People ain't treating one and other like the other

Give me just one more sip of that Worry B Gone

Don't wanna hear no preacher preachin'
No more politician bitchin'
All those songs about love gone wrong,

Got me wonderin' where my baby's gone

Well I can't suffer for wastin' my time
Don't give me no advise that rime

Just give just one more puff of that Worry B Gone

Don't wanna hear no preacher preachin'
No more politician bitchin'
All those songs about love gone wrong,
Got me wonderin' where my baby's gone

Give me just one more hit of that Worry B Gone
Yeah, give me just one more sip of that Worry B Gone
Give me just one more puff of that Worry B Gone'

You Don't Think I'm Funny Anymore Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever

You don't think I'm funny anymore
You used to laugh at all my jokes
Even though you'd heard them all before
But yoy think I'm funny anymore

I used to fake a heart attack
And fall down on the floor
But even I don't think that's funny anymore

I guess things change
And the more they change the more they stay the same
And there ain't no blame
Sometimes the picture just don't fit the frame

And this is where the cowboy yields the floor
Cause you don't think I'm funny anymore

I guess things change
And the more they change the more they stay the same
And there ain't no blame
Sometimes the picture just fit the frame
And this is where the cowboy yields the floor
Cause you don't think I'm funny anymore

Did you hear the one about the dirty whore
Oh I forgot... you don't think I'm funny anymore

Gotta Serve Somebody Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Moment Of Forever
(originally by Bob Dylan)

You may be an ambassador to England or France
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
It may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

Might be a rock'n' roll adict prancing on the stage
Might have money and drugs at your commands, women in a cage
You may be a business man or some high degree thief
They may call you Doctor or they may call you Chief.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

You may be a state trooper, you might be an young turk
You may be the head of some big TV network
You may be rich or poor, you may be blind or lame
You may be living in another country under another name.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

You may be a construction worker working on a home
You may be living in a mansion or you might live in a dome
You might own guns and you might even own tanks
You might be somebody's landlord you might even own banks.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be working in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody's mistress, may be somebody's heir.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk
Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk
You might like to eat caviar, you might like to eat bread
You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed.

But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
It may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

You may call me Terry, you may call me Jimmy
You may call me Bobby, you may call me Zimmy
You may call me R.J., you may call me Ray
You may call me anything but no matter what you say.

You're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.

Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head
Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head

I'd tried to tell the woman
But she doesn't believe a word I said
Go light pretty baby...
Gonna need my help some day
It's all right pretty baby...
Gonna need my help some day

You're gonna wish you listened
To some of those things I said

Go ahead pretty baby
Oh, honey knock yourself out
Go ahead pretty baby

Cause you don't know what it's all about

Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head
Bright lights, big city
Gone to my baby's head

Caldonia Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Walking with my baby, she got great big feet
Long, lean and cranky and ain't had nothing to eat
But she's my baby, I love her just the same
I'm crazy about my baby 'cause Caldonia is her name
Caldonia, Caldonia
What makes your big head so hard?
I love you, I love you just the same
I'm crazy about you, baby, 'cause Caldonia is your name

You know my mother told me to leave Caldonia alone
No kidding, that what she said
She said, "Son, the woman ain't no good, leave her alone"
But mama didn't know what Caldonia had been putting down
So I'm going down to Caldonia's house and ask her just one more time

Caldonia, Caldonia
What makes your big head so hard?
I love you, love you just the same
I'm crazy about you, baby, 'cause Caldonia is your name

Rainy Day Blues Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Well it's cloudy in the morning gonna be raining in the afternoon
Cloudy in the morning and it's gonna be raining in the afternoon
If you don't like this rainy weather you better pack your bags and move

But if you're running from it brother the only road that I can see
If you're running from it brother the only road that I can see
Is the road that leads to nowhere and nowhere is a fool like me

Rain keep a falling falling round my window pane
Rain keep a falling falling round my window pane
Ain't never seen so much rainy weather guess I'll never see the sun again

[guitar + harmonica]

Save those dimes and nickels save 'em for a rainy day
Save your dimes and nickels save 'em for a rainy day
It ain't gonna keep the rain from coming but at least you know you've paid your way

Rain keep a falling falling round my window pane
Rain keep a falling falling round my window pane
Ain't never seen so much rainy weather guess I'll never see the sun again

Stardust Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
Such lonely nights
Oh baby lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new, oh baby
And each kiss an inspiration
Now that baby you know was long ago

Oh beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom

Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain baby
My stardust melody
Oh memory oh memory oh memory

Basin Street Blues Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Won't you come along with me
To the Mississippi
We'll take the boat to the land of dreams
Steam down the river down to New Orleans

The band's there to meet us
And old friends to greet us
Where all the people always meet
Heaven on earth they call it Basin Street

Basin Street is the street
Where the elite always meet
In New Orleans the land of dreams
You'll never know how nice it seems
Or just how much it really means

Glad to be oh yessiree
Where welcome's free are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues

Glad to be oh yessiree
Where welcome's free are dear to me
Where I can lose
My Basin Street blues

Ain't you glad you came with me
Way down to the Mississippi
We took the boat to the land of dreams
Steam down the river to New Orleans

Georgia On My Mind Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Georgia, Georgia,
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I'm say Georgia
Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

I said Georgia,
Ooh Georgia, no peace I find
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Georgia,
Georgia,
No peace, no peace I find
Just this old, sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

I said just an old sweet song,
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Well, I went upon a mountain, I looked down in the sea
I seen the crabs and the fishes doing the beebop beep
'Cause my bucket's got a hole in it, yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it, I can't buy no beer

[Chorus:]
Yeah! My bucket's got a hole in it
Yeah! My bucket's got a hole in it
Yeah! My bucket's got a hole in it
I can't buy no beer

Well, I'm standing on the corner with a bucket in my hand
I'm a-waiting for a woman that ain't got no man
Cause my bucket's got a hole in it
Yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it, I can't buy no beer

[Chorus]

Well, there ain't no use for me a-working so hard
When I got a woman in the boss man's yard
'Cause my bucket's got a hole in it, yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it, I can't buy no beer

[Chorus]

Well, me and my baby, we just bought a Ford
And now we sit together on the running board
'Cause my bucket's got a hole in it, yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it
Yeah, my bucket's got a hole in it, I can't buy no beer

[Chorus]

Ain't Nobody's Business Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

There ain't nothing I can do, or nothing I can say,
Some folks will criticize me.
So I'm gonna do just what I want to anyway,
And don't care if you all despise me.

If I should take a notion
To jump into the ocean,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If I go to church on Sunday
And I shimmy down on Monday,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

And if my friend ain't got no money
And I say, "All right, take all of mine honey,"
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

If I lend her my last nickel
And it leaves me in a pickle,
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

I would rather my gal would hit me
Than to haul right up and quit me.
It ain't nobody's business if I do.

I know that she won't call no copper
If she gets beat up by her poppa.
It ain't nobody's business if I do, Lord no.
Well, it ain't nobody's business if I do.

That's All Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Two Men With The Blues

Some people go to school tryin' to learn how to teach
Some people go to school tryin' to learn how to preach
But if you preach without goin' school
Brother you're ain't no preacher you're an educated fool
And that's all and that's all
You'd better change your way of livin' cause the good Lord say that's all

Now a feller I know it's a wiser man tryin' to save all the money that he can
One day undertaker lets him down
Where's he gonna spend that money under the ground
And that's all and that's all...
[horns]
Now a man come from monkey some people say
But the Good Book brother just don't tell it that way
And if you believe that monkey tale like some folks do
Then I'd rather be that monkey than you
And that's all and that's all...

Well my little song is ended and my little song is through
And I necessarilly mean this song for you
But if you don't like the way the little song goes
Well it's a mighty good sign that I've been trottin' on your toes
And that's all and that's all...

The Nearness Of You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

When you're in my arms and I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams come true

I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you'll only grant me the right
To hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night the nearness of you

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling, kiss me

Fill my life with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling, kiss me

Fill my life with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, in other words
In other words, in other words
In other words
I love... you

Come Rain Or Come Shine Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

I'm gonna love you like nobody's loved you
Come rain or come shine
High as a mountain and deep as a river
Come rain or come shine

I guess, when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don't ever bet me
'Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me

You're gonna love me, like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
Happy together, unhappy together
And won't it be fine

Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine

I guess, when you met me
It was just one of those things
But don't ever bet me
'Cause I'm gonna be true if you let me

You're gonna love me like nobody's loved me
Come rain or come shine
Happy together, unhappy together
And won't it be fine

Days may be cloudy or sunny
We're in or we're out of the money
But I'm with you always
I'm with you rain or shine

If I Had You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic
(feat. Diana Krall)

I could show the world how to smile
I could be glad all of the while
I could turn the gray skies to blue
If I had you

I could leave my old days behind
Leave all my pals and never mind
There is nothing I couldn't do
If I had you

I could climb a snow-capped mountain
Sail the mighty ocean wide
I could cross a burning desert
If I had you by my side

I could be a queen dear on ground
Humble or poor
Rich or renown
There is nothing I couldn't do
If I had you

Ain't Misbehavin' Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

No one to talk with, all by myself
No one to walk with, I'm happy on the shelf babe
Ain't misbehavin', savin' my love for you

I know for certain the one I love
I'm through with flirtin', you that I'm thinkin' of
Ain't misbehavin'
Oh savin' my love oh baby, love for you

Like Jack Horner in a corner
Don't go nowhere and I don't care
Oh your kisses worth waitin' for, babe

I don't stay out late, don't care to go
I'm home about eight, me and my radio, babe
Ain't misbehavin'
Savin' all my love for you

I Miss You So Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

Those happy hours I spent with you
That lovely afterglow
Most of all, I miss you so

Your sweet caresses, each rendezvous
You voice so soft and low
Most of all, I miss you so

You once filled my heart with
No regrets, no fears
Now you'll find my heart
Filled to the top with tears

I'll always love you and want you too
How much you'll never know
Most of all, I miss you so

Because Of You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

Baby It's Cold Outside Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic
(feat. Norah Jones)

I really can't stay
Baby it's cold outside
I've got to go away
Baby it's cold outside
This evening has been
Been hoping that you'd drop in
So very nice
I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice

My mother will start to worry
Beautiful, what's your hurry?
And my father will be pacing the floor
Just listen to that fireplace roar
Now really I'd better scurry
Sweetheart, what's your hurry?
Well maybe just a half a drink more
Why don't you put some records on while I pour

All the neighbors might think
But baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink?
No cabs to be had out there
Oh, I wish I knew how
Your eyes are like starlight now
To break this spell
I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell

I ought to say no, no, no, sir
Mind if I move in closer
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
What's the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can't stay
Baby don't hold out
Oh, but it's cold outside

I simply must go
Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no
But baby, it's cold out there
Oh, this welcome has been
So lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm
Look out that window at that storm

My sister will be suspicious
Gosh, your lips look delicious
And my brother will be there at the door
Waves upon a tropical shore
Oh, my maiden aunt's mind is vicious
Ooo, baby you're so delicious
Well maybe just one little kiss more
Never such a blizzard before

Oh, I've got to go home
You'll freeze to the bone out there
Say, lend me a comb
It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand
I thrill when you touch my hand
But don't you see?
How can you do this thing to me?

Oh, there's bound to be talk tomorrow
Making my lifelong sorrow
Well at least there will be plenty implied
If you caught pneumonia and died
But I really can't stay
Get over that old out
Baby it's cold outside

Ooo ooo ooo
Hey, I gotta get out of here
Come on, baby
Come on what?
Just give me five minutes more
You sure know how to wear a girl down, don't you?
Okay, okay, okay, okay

Angel Eyes Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

Try to think that love's not around
But it's uncomfortably near
My old heart ain't gaining no ground
Because my angel eyes ain't here

Angel eyes, that old devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love's mispent
Mispent with angel eyes tonight

So drink up all you people
Order anything you see
Have fun you happy people
The laughs and the jokes are on me

Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
Got to find who's now number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here
Oh, where is my angel eyes

Excuse me while I disappear
Angel eyes, angel eyes.

On The Street Where You Live Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

I have often walked down the street before
But the pavement always
Stayed beneath my feet before

All at once am I
Several stories high
Knowing I'm on the street where you live

Are there lilac trees
In the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in any other part of town?

Does enchantment pour
Out of every door?
No, it's just on the street where you live

And oh, the towering feeling
Just to know somehow you are near
The overpowering feeling
That any second you may suddenly appear

People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's no where else on earth
That I would rather be

Let the time go by
I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live

People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's no where else on earth
That I would rather be

Let the time go by
I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live
Let me be on the street where you live

Since I Fell For You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

When you just give love, and never get love,
Youd better let love depart.

I know its so, and still I know,
I cant get you out of my heart.

You made me leave my happy home.
You took my love, and now youve gone,
Since I fell for you...

My life has been such misery and pain.
I guess I'll never be the same,
Since I fell for you...

Well its too bad, and its too sad,
That I'm in love with you...

When you love me, and then you snub me.
But what can I do, I'm still in love with you.

I guess I'll never see the light.
I get these blues most every night,
Since I fell for you...

Well its too bad, and its too sad,
That I'm in love with you...

When you love me, and then you snub me.
But what can I do, I'm still in love with you.

I guess I'll never see the light.
I get those blues most every night,
Since I fell for you...

Since you loved me, then you snubbed me
I prayed you put no one above me
Now I'm black and blue since I fell for you

Always On My Mind Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : American Classic

Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
And maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
If I made you feel second best
Girl I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

And maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me
tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
And give me
Give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied
I'll keep you satisfied

[Instrumental Interlude]

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

But you were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Hesitation Blues Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Willie And The Wheel
(feat. Asleep at the Wheel)

Well, a nickel is a nickel, a dime is a dime
I need a new man, Lord I know I won't mind.
Tell me how long, dear, do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, dear, must I hesitate?

Well now, the eagle on the dollar says "In God we trust"
You say you won't obey me, you wanna see that dollar first
How long, dear, do I have to wait?
Can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate?

Lord, if the river was made of whiskey an' I was a duck,
I'd just swim to the bottom an' I'd never come up.
How long, dear, mm, do I have to wait?
Why, can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate?

Now there's rocks down in the ocean and there's fish in the sea,
I know you mean the whole world to me.
How long, dear, must I have to wait?
Can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate?

I got them Hesitation Stockings, I got them Hesitation Shoes,
Lord knows I got them Hesitation Blues.
Tell me, how long do I have to wait?
Why, can I get you now, dear, mm, must I hesitate?

Sweet Jennie Lee Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Willie And The Wheel
(feat. Asleep at the Wheel)

Sweet Jenny Lee from sunny Tennessee,
You'll love her when you see
Sweet Jenny Lee!

Each little bird is singing merrily
Just getting set to see
Sweet Jenny Lee!

She's got that certain little something in her style,
She's got a great big bit of heaven right in her smile.

She promised me that she'd say yessiree,
That's good enough for me,
Sweet Jenny Lee.

[Willie:]
I ain't gonna give nobody none of my jellyroll
[Wheel:]
How 'bout your short'nin' bread
[Willie:]
Oh, I wouldn't give you a piece a pie to save your soul
[Wheel:]
I guess that's what you said
[Willie:]
My Ma told me today, when she went away
[Wheel:]
To buy groceries
[Willie:]
To be a good boy, she'd give me a toy
'Cause I'm my Mama's pride and joy
There ain't no use of anyone to keep a hangin' 'round
[Wheel:]
Maybe I'm waitin' on your Ma
[Willie:]
You don't know my Ma, she'd really put you down
[Wheel:]
Put me down
[Willie:]
Ma's bakin' up a storm, and her oven is still warm
I know you want it, but you can't have it
And I ain't gonna give you none
[Wheel:]
You dirty boy!

[Wheel:]
I ain't gonna give nobody none of my jellyroll
[Willie:]
Oh, such a stingy chap!
[Wheel:]
I wouldn't give you a piece a pie to save your soul
[Willie:]
How 'bout a zuzu snap
[Wheel:]
Her cherry pie is fine, her layer cake divine
But I'm tellin' you twice, you can't get a slice
Unless you're extra special nice
Now, there ain't no use of you to just keep a hangin' 'round
[Willie:]
Oh, pretty please
[Wheel:]
I love you but I hate to put you down
Yeah, my jellyroll is sweet
[Willie:]
That it is!
[Wheel:]
It sure is hard to beat
Well, I know they want it
[Willie:]
But, they can't have it
[Both:]
Yeah, ho-ho Miss Nelly, I mean my jellyroll

[Willie:]
Dibs on the dishpan
[Wheel:]
I got seconds

Fan It Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Willie And The Wheel

If the sun's too hot cool it if you can
Better go out and get yourself a five cent fan
And fan it, fan it, you gotta fan it and cool it
Honey till the cows come home

Just met myself a new girl and her name was Sue
She said, "To make love to you, honey tell you what to do"
You gotta fan it, fan it, you gotta fan it and cool it
Honey till the cows come home

My mamma's in the kitchen, I just heard that back door slam
Come out of that kitchen honey, quit scorching that ham
And let's just fan it, fan it, you gotta fan it and cool it
Honey till the cows come home

Well, I got six months in jail, my back turned to the wall
Fannin' that thing was the cause of it all
So fan it, fan it, gotta fan it and cool it
Honey till the cows come home

Right or wrong I'll be with you (right or wrong I'll be with you)

Shame On You Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Willie And The Wheel
(feat. Asleep at the Wheel)

My friends they wash the windows
And they shine in the sun
They tell me wake up early in the morning sometime
See what a beautiful job weve done

I say lets put on some tunes
Sing a long and dolittle all day
Go down to the riverside take off our shoes
And wash these sins away

And the river said
La la la it said shame on you
And the river said
La la la it said shame on you

I go down to chicano city park
Cause it makes me feel so fine
And when the weeds go down you can see up close
In the dead of the winter time

But when the summer comes everythings in bloom
And you wouldnt know its there
And the white folks like to pretend its not
But their musics in the air

And you can hear em singing
La la la they said shame on you
You can feel em dancing
La la la they said shame on you

My friend tanner she says you know
Me and jesus were of the same heart
The only thing that keeps us distant
Is that I keep fuckin up

I said come on down to chicano city park
And wash your blues away
The beautiful ladies walk right by
You know I never know what to say

And theyll be singing
Oo la la la la la la la la shame on you
And theyll be dancing
Ooo la la la they said shame on you
Shame on you

Lets go road block trippin in the middle of the night
Up in gainesville town
Therell be blue lights flashin down the long dirt road
When they ask me to step out

They say weve been looking for illegal immigrants
Can we check your car
I say you know its funny
I think we were on the same boat back in 1694

And I said
Oo la la la la la la la la shame on you
Theyll be dancing
La la la I said shame on you
I said
Oo la la la la la la la la la la shame on you
Shame on you la la
La la la la la shame on you
I said
I said
La la la shame on you
Ill be dancing
And theyll be singing
La la la I said shame on you
Shame on you

Road block trippin in the middle of the night
Gainesville town
Blue lights flashin down the long dirt road

I'm Sittin' On Top Of The World Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Willie And The Wheel
(feat. Asleep at the Wheel)

One summer day,
She went away.
She gone and left me,
She gone to stay.
But now she gone,
And I don't worry.
'Cause I'm sitting
On top of the world.

Worked all the summer,
And worked all the fall.
I had to take my Christmas,
In my overall.
But now she gone,
And I don't worry.
Because I'm sitting
On top of the world.

Goin' down to the
Freight yard,
Just to meet a freight train.
I'm gonna leave this town,
Well it's just got too hard.
But now she gone,
And I don't worry.
'Cause I'm sitting
On top of the world.

One summer day,
She went away.
She gone and left me,
She gone to stay.
But now she gone,
And I don't worry.
'Cause I'm sitting
On top of the world.

Won't you ride in my little red wagon
I'd love to pull you down the street
And I know all the kids will be jealous
When they see my playmate so sweet

Hold tight till we come to the hilltop
Gonna coast down the hill, you and me
Won't you ride in my little red wagon
For you are my sweetheart to be

Hold tight till we come to the hilltop
Gonna coast down the hill, you and me
Won't you ride in my little red wagon
For you are my sweetheart to be
You are my sweetheart to be

Man With The Blues Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

If you need some advice in being lonely
If you need a little help in feelin' blue
If you need some advice on how to cry all night
Come to me I'm the man with the blues

I'm the man with a hundred thousand heart aches (a good selection all in blue)
And I've got most any color of the blues
So if you need a little shove in foulin' up in love
Come to me I'm the man with the blues

You have a trusting man you can depend on
He tells you youA're the one he dearly loves
Your not content to be his wife you long for the restless life
Come to me I'm the man with the blues

Seaman's Blues Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

[Chorus:]
On my way to Italy from the Gulf of Mexico
Riding on a tanker, feeling mighty low
My good gal's behind me, no loving for so long
I'm going back to Texas, for that's where I belong

Nights are so lonely on the ocean
To much time to dream of yesterday
If only I could carry out my notion
And hit the trail for Texas right away

[Chorus:]
On my way to Italy from the Gulf of Mexico
Riding on a tanker, feeling mighty low
My good gal's behind me, no loving for so long
I'm going back to Texas, for that's where I belong

I never thought I was leaving
I could get so blue out on the sea
But I'll bet you after all this grieving
Its that good old Texas soil for me

[Chorus:]
On my way to Italy from the Gulf of Mexico
Riding on a tanker, feeling mighty low
My good gal's behind me, no loving for so long
I'm going back to Texas, for that's where I belong

Dark As A Dungeon Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

Come all you young fellers, so young and so fine
And seek not your fortunes way down in the mine
It will form like a habit and seep in your soul
'Til the stream of your blood flows as black as the coal

It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
Where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines

There is many a man I have seen in my day
Who lived just to labor his whole life away
Like the fiend with his dope and the drunkard his wine
A man will have lust for the lure of the mine

It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
Where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines

I hope when I'm dead and the ages shall roll
That my body will blacken and turn into coal
I will look from the door of my heavenly home
And pity the miner a' diggin' my bones

It's dark as a dungeon and damp as the dew
Where the dangers are double and the pleasures are few
Where the rain never falls and the sun never shines
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mines
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine
It's dark as a dungeon way down in the mine

Gotta Walk Alone Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

I gotta walk alone
My sweetheart's gone
Nobody here loves me now
It's a long and lonesome road
I've got to walk alone

All the friends I knew
By two and two
Have left me one by one
It's a long and lonesome road
I've got to walk alone

Don't know where
Don't even care
I just keep walking on and on

All the friends I knew
By two and two
Have left me one by one
It's a long and lonesome road
I've got to walk alone

Don't know where
Don't even care
I just keep walking on and on

All the friends I knew
By two and two
Have left me one by one
It's a long and lonesome road
I've got to walk alone

My Baby's Gone Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

[Chorus:]
Hold back the rushing minutes
Make the wind lie still
Don't let the moonlight shine
Across the lonely hill
Dry all the raindrops
And hold back the sun
My world has ended
My baby's gone

The Milkman whistles softly
As he comes up to my door
Lyrics courtesy Top40db.
The Mailman brings the letters by
Just like he did before
They seem so busy all day long
As though there's nothing wrong,
Don't they know the world has ended
My baby's gone

[Chorus]

I wake up sometimes in the night
And realize you're gone
And then I toss upon my bed
And wait for day to come
I try to tell my lonely heart
It must go on alone
But it cries the world has ended
My baby's gone

Freight Train Boogie Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

Casey Jones he was a mighty man
But now he's resting in the promised land
The kind of music he could understand
Was an eight wheel driver under his command

[Refrain:]
He made the freight train boogie
All the time
He made the freight train boogie
As he rolled down the line

When the fireman started ringing the bell
Everybody hung around to tell
Casey Jones was a coming to town, on a six
Eight wheeler that was flat on the ground

[Refrain]

Satisfied Mind Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

How many times have you heard someone say,
"If I had his money I'd do things my way."
But little they know that it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.

Once I was winning in fortune and fame;
Everything that I dreamed for to get a start in lifes game.
But suddenly it happened, I lost every dime,
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind.

Money can't buy back your youth when you're old
Or a friend when you're lonely or a love that's grown cold;
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind.

When life has ended, my time has run out,
My friends and my loved ones I'll leave, there's no doubt.
But one thing for certain, when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.

You Done Me Wrong Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

Well you tell me that you care
But now you're gone, you've got me cryin'
No use denyin' you done me wrong
If I could look inside your heart
Maybe I would know the reason
Why you are leavin' me all alone.

Well you know it's not so
When you said you tried
Well, you know you lied
I didn't do one wrong thing to you
Won't you tell me baby why
You went and left me here so lonely
I miss you only for I love you.

Did I ever make you sad
So you'd be mad enough to hurt me
And desert me for so long?
Well you're tellin' everyone what you done
You think it's funny
Well, listen honey you done me wrong.

Pistol Packin' Mama Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

Drinkin' beer in a cabaret And I was havin' fun!
Until one night she caught me right, And now I'm on the run

Lay that pistol down Babe, Lay that pistol down,
Pistol Packin' Mama, Lay that pistol down.

She kicked out my windshield, She hit me over the head,
She cussed and cried, and said I lied, And I wished that I was dead.

Lay that pistol down Babe, Lay that pistol down,
Pistol Packin' Mama, Lay that pistol down.

Drinkin' beer in a cabaret, And dancing with a blonde,
Until one night she shot out the light, Bang! That blonde was gone.

Lay that pistol down Babe, Lay that pistol down,
Pistol Packin' Mama, Lay that pistol down.

I'll see you every night Babe, I'll woo you every day,
I'll be your regular Daddy, If you'll put that gun away.

Lay that pistol down Babe, Lay that pistol down,
Pistol Packin' Mama, Lay that pistol down.
Lay that pistol down Babe, Lay that pistol down,
Pistol Packin' Mama, Lay that pistol down.

Now down there was old Al Dexter, He always had his fun,
But with some lead. she shot him dead, His Honkin' days are done.

Ocean Of Diamonds Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

Some people drink champagne out under the stars
While others drink wine leaning over a bar
But all that I need dear to make me feel fine
Is to know that your love will forever be mine

I'd give an ocean of diamonds or a world filled with flowers
To hold you closely for just a few hours
Hear you whisper softly that you love me too
Would change all the dark clouds to bluest of blue

I don't drink their champagne and I don't drink their wine
So if you refuse me my poor heart will pine
I'll be so lonely till the day that I die
And as long as I live dear you'll still hear me cry

Drinking Champagne Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

I'm drinking champagne feeling no pain till early morning
Dining and dancing with every pretty girl I can find
And I'm having a fling with a pretty young thing till early morning
Knowing tomorrow I'll wake up with you on my mind

Guilty conscience I guess though I must confess
I never loved you much when you were mine
So I'll keep drinking champagne...
Guilty conscience I guess...
So I'll keep drinking champagne...
Knowing tomorrow I'll wake up with you on my mind

I Am A Pilgrim Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Traveling through this wearisome land
And I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord
And it's not (good Lordy it's not) not made by hand

I got a mother, a sister and a brother
Who have gone to that sweet home
And I am determined to go and see them, good Lord
Over on (good Lordy over on) that distant shore

As I go down to that river Jordan
Just to bathe my weary soul
If I could touch but just the hem of His garment, good Lord
I believe (good Lordy I believe) that it would make me whole

Now when I'm dead, laying in my coffin
All of my friends all gather round
They can say that he's just laying there sleeping, good Lord
Sweet peace (Lordy sweet peace) his soul is found

House Of Gold Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

People steal, they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
Don't they know on the judgement day
That their gold and silver will melt away

I'd rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul

Jesus said ,come on to me
I'll break sin's chains and set you free
I'll carry you to a home on high
Where you'll never, never die

What good is gold and silver, too
When your heart's not good and true
Sinner hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray

Jesus died there on the cross
So this world would not be lost
Sinner hear now what I say
For someday you'll have to pay

What good is gold and silver too
If your heart's not good and true
Sinner, hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray

Nobody's Fault But Mine Lyrics

Artist : WILLIE NELSON
Album : Country Music

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Had good love in my home
Had a good love in my home
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Loves my sugar in my tea
Loves my sugar in my tea
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Love will cry when I leave
Love will cry when I leave
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I leave my love behind
Nobody's fault but mine
