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 »

High on a mountain in western Montana
A silhouette moves cross a cinnamon sky
Ridin' along on a horse he called Music
With a song on his lips, and a tear in his eye

And he dreamed of a time and a lady that loved him
And how he would sing her sweet lullabye
But we don't ever ask him, and he never talks about her
I guess its better to just let it slide

And he sang oooh to the ladies
And oooh he makes 'em sigh
Now he rides away on a horse he called Music
With a pain in his heart and a tear in his eye

Now he rode the Music from Boston to Bozeman
For not too much money, and way too much ride
But those were the days when a horse he called Music
Could jump through the moon and sail across the sky

Now all that's left is a time worn old cowboy
With nothing more than the sweet bye and bye
Trailin' along is a horse with no rider
A horse he calls Memories that she used to ride

And he sang oooh to the ladies
And oooh he damn near laid down and died
Now he rides away on a horse he called Music
With a pain in his heart and a tear in his eyes

High on a mountain in western Montana
Two crosses cut through a cinnamon sky
Marking the place where a horse he called Music
Lays with a cowboy in the sweet bye and bye
