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 »

If you think
I laugh louder than anyone here
If you think
That my volume's too high
If you think
I laugh loud
You ain't heard nothin' yet
You ought to hear me cry

If you think
I talk louder than maybe I should
Well I guess, I'm just that kind of guy
But if I talk loud
And laugh loud
You ain't heard it all
You ought to hear me cry

I go home, to a home
Where love's almost gone
Not enough to fill one needle's eye
Then I sit down in a corner
And I turn on the tears
And you ought to hear me cry

I go home, to a home
Where love's almost gone
Not enough to fill one needle's eye
Then I sit down in a corner
And I turn on the tears
And you ought to hear me cry
You ought to hear me cry
