 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Mr Record Man I'm looking for a song I heard today
There was someone blue singing not someone who went away
Just like me his heart was yearning for a love that used to be
It's a lonely song about a lonely man like me
There was something bout a love that didn't treat him right
And he'd wake from troubled sleep and cry her name at night
Mr Record Man get this record for me won't you please
It's a lonely song about a lonely man like me

I was driving down the highway with the radio turned on
And a man that I heard singing sound so blue and all alone
As I listen to his lonely song I wonder could it be
Could there somewhere be another lonely man like me
There was something 'bout a love

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 »
