Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)
by Willie Nelson



The only two things in life that make it worth living,
Is guitars tuned good and firm-feeling women.
I don't need my name in the marquee lights,
I got my song and I got you with me tonight.
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love.

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas,
With Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we're living,
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between Hank Williams' pain songs,
An' Newberry's train songs,
An' "Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain",
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain't nobody feeling no pain.

So baby let's sell your diamond ring,
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away.
This coat and tie is choking me,
In your high society, you cry all day.
We've been so busy keeping up with the Jones,
Four-car garage and we're still building on.
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love.

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas,
With Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we're living,
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between Hank Williams' pain songs,
An Newberry's train songs,
An' "Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain",
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain't nobody feeling no pain.

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas,
With Waylon and Willie and the boys.
This successful life we're living's,
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys.
Between the Hank Williams' pain songs,
An Jerry Jeff's train songs,
An' "Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain",
Out in Luckenbach, Texas,
Ain't nobody feeling no pain.
