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 told my heart, I didn't love you
That I'd be happy if we'd part
But now I know, I was mistaken
I told a lie to my heart

I told my heart, I didn't love you
Now we'll forever be apart
Lonely years of tears and sorrow
I told a lie to my heart

If we sin, somehow we pay
And now the bitter teardrops start
I must learn to live without you
I told a lie to my heart

I told my heart, I didn't love you
That I'll be happy if we'll part
Lonely years of tears and sorrow
I told a lie to my heart
