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 »

When that ev'nin' sun goes down
Yeah, you'll find me hangin' around
Because the night life
It ain't no good life but it's my life

Yeah, yeah, yeah listen to the blues
Listen to what they're sayin'
Oh, please listen to the blues
Listen to the blues they're playin'

Ah, ah, all of the people just like you and me
They're all dreamin' about their old used to be
Because the night life
It ain't no good life but it's my life

They tell me life's an empty scene
An avenue of broken dreams
Because the night life
It ain't no good life but it's my life
