Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

Don't be concerned it's time I learned 
That those who play with fire get burned
But I'll be alright in a little while 
But you'll be permanently lonely
Don't be too quick to pity me 
Don't salve my heart with sympathy
'Cause I'll be alright in a little while 
But you'll be permanently lonely
The world looks on with wonder 
And pity at your kind
'Cause it knows that the future 
Is not very pretty for your kind for your kind
Will always be runnin' and wonderin' 
What's happened to hearts that you've broken 
And left all alone
But we'll be alright in a little while 
But you'll be permanently lonely 
Runnin' lonely
