Monday morning brought out a little twang with likely my favorite Waylon Jennings song, “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way”.
Lord, I’ve seen the world, with a five-piece band
Looking at the back side of me
Singing my songs, and one of his now and then
But I don’t think Hank done ‘em this way, no
I don’t think Hank done ’em this way
Waylon Jennings hangs around for the first song on Wednesday with “Good Ol’ Boys”.
Favorite line? I have two and can’t pick one.
Staightenin’ the curves
Flattenin’ the hills
Someday the mountain might get ‘em
But the law never will
I’m a good ol’ boy
You know my momma loves me
But she don’t understand
They keep a showin’ my hands
And not my face on TV
The music started today with “Nowhere Road”, by Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson.
I’ve been down this road, just searchin’ for the end
And it don’t go nowhere, it just brings you back again
One big ole constant loop
Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson kick off the music this morning with “Luckenbach, Texas“
The only two things in life that make it worth livin’
Is guitars that tune good and firm feelin’ women
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
Waylon Jennings “Highwayman”, from The Highwaymen
“HIghwayman”, The Highwaymen
It’s Friday and I actually remembered to add/update two videos to “My Top 100 Songs”
I nearly went with a more modern version found here, simply because it’s touching to see Shooter Jennings step in for his pops Waylon, and not many if any can fill Johnny Cash’s shoes but Jamey Johnson gives it a valiant effort.
