Title "For Waylon"
He grew up in Texas,his thirst for music strong.
He got into radio,The airwaves were his home.
Then Buddy Holly asked him to join him in a song.
Buddy's time was ending, though how were they to know.
Waylon took a bus after playing Clearfield's show.
Nashville wasn't easy for a good ol' boy like him.
He liked to play the music his own way.
He and guys like Willie fought them all the way
Waylon took his song of This Time and headed way out west.
He finally got it up to number one.
Then things really started happening,he met Jesse along the way.
They took on life's challenges as one.
The pills and booze and music,always took him down.
But Jesse usually brought him back around.
I seen them in Montana not far from the end,
He played in rain and mud to do the show.
I never will forget that night he gave it all he had.
I've never seen him do a better show.
Now he's gone only his songs remain...
It's up to guys like us to keep them going.
We'll all remember Waylon Jennings..........
Let's keep the music flowing...
