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 »

I'm just one step before losing you.
And I'm just one step ahead of the blues.
But I know that there's been pain an misery.
Long before this old world had ever heard of me.
And I know it will hurt to see you go,
But we'll just add one more heartache to the score.
And though I still love you as before,
I'm just one step beyond caring any more. 

Bet that you're surprised that I could feel this way,
After staying home an' waiting night and day.
For someone who cared so much for me,
You'd come home just long enough to laugh at me.
I don't know just when my feeling's changed,
I just know I could never feel the same,
And though I still love you as before,
I'm just one step beyond caring any more.
