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 »

Everybody's got a place they go
When the old battery gets running low
I'm a sucker for the sand and sea, yea
If I had my way, hey I'd always be

Way up high in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High up in a coconut tree

Not to green, not too brown
I shimmy up and I shake the good ones down
Coconuts, a couple of bucks a piece
And you can do alright if you ain't afraid to be

High in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High in a coconut tree

Yeah, there's less stress and the world's alright
It's a different point of view
When you're looking at life

Way up high in a coconut tree
(Layin' low) low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High up in a coconut

High in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High in a coconut tree

High in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High in a coconut tree

Layin' low, just my baby and me (Sunny skies as far as I can see)
High in a coconut tree

Sunny skies as far as I can see
High up in a coconut tree
Up here with Willie
Sunny skies as far as I can see
Let's get high in a coconut tree
