Willie, Waylon and Me
by David Allan Coe



I'd heard The Burritos out in California
could fly higher than The Byrds
Roger McGuinn had a 12 string guitar.
It was like nothing I'd ever heard
And The Eagles flew in from the west coast
Like The Byrds they were trying to be free
While in Texas the talk turned to Outlaws
Like Willie and Waylon and me.

Hey!
Well they say Texas music is in the make
And we've been making music that is free
Doing one night stands and playing with our bands
Willie, Waylon and me

Oh Mad Dog!

They say The Beatles were just the beginning
of everything music could be
Just like The Stones I was rolling along
Like a ship lost out on the sea
And Joplin would die for the future
And Dylan would write poetry
And in Texas the talk turned to Outlaws
Like Willie and Waylon and me

Hey!
My name is David Allen Coe and I'm from Dallas Texas.
They say Texas music is in the make
And we've been making music that is free
Doing one night stands and playing with our bands
Willie, Waylon and me

Big Jim!

I'd heard The Burritos out in California
could fly higher than The Byrds
Roger McGuinn had a 12 string guitar.
It was like nothing I'd ever heard
And The Eagles flew in from the west coast
Like The Byrds they were trying to be free
While in Texas the talk turned to Outlaws
Like Willie and Waylon and me.
