WAYLON JENNINGS lyrics - I've Always Been Crazy

Billy

Original and similar lyrics
Billy we've come along way together and through it all You've been just like a brother to me And Billy we've had our share of ups and downs Froze our tails sleeping on the ground When the jobs were few and far between. We've been knocking around together so long Singing them same old songs Been out in the rain so long I swear we're shrinking Billy lately I have done some thinking. When I look back on our lives We've sure had ourself a time But you know it's been a wild world we traveled And it's startin' to unravel. We leave so many loose ends behind We've been bucked off and kicked so many times And the ground just keeps gettin' harder Billy you know well as I we ain't gettin' no younger. Billy another summer's come and gone Now with winter coming on I know we planned on heading south But Billy I thought about it several days And these words I'm about to say. They don't taste good in my mouth But there's someone who's waiting back home Lord, if she'll still have me Guess I'll be saying so long you go on without me. Ain't no easy way of saying goodbye So be sure and tell 'em all down in Texas I said hi...

Billy Dee

KRIS KRISTOFFERSON "Live At The Philharmonic"
Billy Dee was seventeen when he turned twenty-one fooling with some foolish things he could've left alone but he had to try to satisfy a thirst he couldn't name driven towards the darkness by the devil in his veins all around the honky tonks, searching for a sign gettin' by on gettin' high on women, words and wine some folks called him crazy, Lord, and others called him free but we just called us lucky for the love of Billy Dee Busy goin' his own way and speakin' his own words facin' and forgettin' every warnin' that he heard makin' friends and takin' any crazy chance he could gettin' busted for the bad times and believin' in the good Billy took a beatin' from a world he meant no harm the score was written in the scars up on his arm some felt he was payin' for the life he tried to lead but all we felt was sorry for our good friend Billy Dee It may be his soul was bigger than a body's oughta be singin' songs and bringin' laughter to the likes of you and me cause the world he saw was sadder than the one he hoped to find but it wasn't near as lonesome as the one he left behind yesterday they found him on the floor of his hotel reachin' towards the needle, Lord, that drove him down to hell some folks called it suicide, others blame the speed but we all called it crucified when Billy Dee O.D.'d

Rock Back Billy

JOHN HIATT "Stolen Moments"
Get a load of that guy With the dew rag on And the cowboy tie Man that cat is gone Form Memphis to Nashville Then way out west Put that Hollywood party To the acid test Got a little bungalow In the valley somewhere Took a gig playing bass With Sonny and Cher He took it on his chin And never got it off his chest He wouldn't be caught dead wearing that vest Not rock back Billy Rock back Billy He came to make a stew With that swamp guitar He kept it lonesome and blue Yeah, in the trunk of his car But no one gave him a long shot Though he never did doubt What it was not Or what it was all about He got all tangled up with liquor and drugs Trying to make a racket Like those English mugs Till he couldn't get arrested And he couldn't see straight He couldn't even shine shoes In that Golden State Not rock back Billy Come on rock back Billy When you see him on the street Well, he's no spring chicken But ask him how he makes ends meet He'll tell you, I'm still pickin' Aw, rock it, Billy, rock it Yeah they counted him down When they dropped that beat But that red hot sound They could not defeat It started coming back from Boston From East L.A. Down in Austin, Texas And up New York way And as long as there's a kid In a room somewhere With a beat up guitar And some funny looking hair Well, it might be Billy's kid You don't know And all I've got to say is Go, cat, go Come on rock back Billy Come on rock back Billy Rock back Billy

Look At Them Beans

JOHNNY CASH "Look At Them Beans"
This time last year there sure was A lot of sad faces around this old house Our papa died without fulfillin' his life's dream Of producing one of the best crops in Grimes County Though papa died with that dream still in his head A desire in his heart, a promise on his lips, calluses on both hands And two dollars in his pocket Papa didn't live long enough to see his dreams come true So he died from too much work, broken spirit, I guess But I promised our mama that if it was a last thing he'd ever do He'd live long enough to see just one good crop come through But you see we can't plan on things without first talking to God Because we don't know his plans And if we don't include him my friends the way can get mighty hard They say that every time a good and righteous person Is buried in God's good earth it's just fertilizer for the soil And I guess there must be some truth to that Whether we believe it or not I just wish that papa was here right now So that he could see this good crop that we finally got Hey look at that beans and look at that corn And I bet them watermelons must be three feet long Man look at them tomatoes and look at them peas Well I know if papa was here right now he'd sure be pleased And papa would sure be proud of his children too My brother's famous now got his own show on the road Traveling in customized bus imported from Europe That boy always did love music and he loves to travel I got a sister that's got a good job in a beauty shop Making money, making other people look good Ain't nobody here at a house now but me and mama And mama she's gettin' weaker and she's gettin' older every day And she talks softly about joinin' papa in his heavenly home But that woman sure did love that man She worked beside papa for forty some odd years Tryin' to produce a good crop and never could grow a single bean But I just wish that papa was here right now To see this good crop that we finally got Man, look at that beans and look at that corn And I bet them watermelons must be three feet long Man, look at them tomatoes and look at them peas Well, I know if papa was here right now he'd sure be pleased And papa, if you can hear me look at them beans

Sara

JOHN ANDERSON "Takin' The Country Back"
First date, first kiss Well I never will forget The way you looked that night Parked out, 'cross town Watchin' the stars fall down Girl your hair was soft and brown and Just before we get too far I'd hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back Made plans, got rings And had us a million dreams Where our road might lead It wasn't long, we had a truck With all of our things boxed up Left town in a cloud of dust and Got movin', improvin' Why I can't say But suddenly it seems to be Such a long way back I've tried, you've tried And nobody's satisfied Is this where it all ends We can't be so far down Where we can't turn around Pick up this love we found Just before we get too far I hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way Just before we get too far I here you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back.

It's A Long Way Back

JOHN ANDERSON "Takin' The Country Back"
First date, first kiss Well I never will forget The way you looked that night Parked out, 'cross town Watchin' the stars fall down Girl your hair was soft and brown and Just before we get too far I'd hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back Made plans, got rings And had us a million dreams Where our road might lead It wasn't long, we had a truck With all of our things boxed up Left town in a cloud of dust and Got movin', improvin' Why I can't say But suddenly it seems to be Such a long way back I've tried, you've tried And nobody's satisfied Is this where it all ends We can't be so far down Where we can't turn around Pick up this love we found Just before we get too far I hear you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way Just before we get too far I here you say It's gettin' late, we need to go And it's a long way back.
