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 »

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you

I'm gonna write words oh so sweet
They're gonna knock me off my feet
And the kisses on the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em

I'm gonna smile and say
I hope you're feeling better
And sign with love the way you used to do
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And I'm gonna make believe it came from you

I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And make believe it came from you

I'm gonna write words oh so sweet
They're gonna knock me off my feet
And the kisses on the bottom
I'll be glad I got 'em

I'm gonna smile and say
I hope you're feeling better
And sign with love the way you used to do
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
And I'm make believe it came from
I'm make believe it came from
I'm make believe it came from you
