Written by: Waylon Jennings
Performed by: Waylon Jennings
Albums: I’ve Always Been Crazy-1978, et al.

I don’t look the way the average cowboy singer looks.
I’ll admit I’ve taken things I never shoulda took.
You can read a different story in a lot of different books.
But even then you won’t really know,
How it was a long time ago.

Women have been my trouble since I found out they weren’t men.
In spite of that I stopped and took a wife now and then.
They built their fences high but they couldn’t hold me in.
I was born with a fire down below,
And I learned to fly a long time ago.

(Hit it.)

—Instrumental break.—

Don’t ask me about the years I spent out in the rain.
About the ones I spent in love, or the ones I spent insane.
And don’t ask me who I gave my seat to on that plane.
I think you already know.
I told you that a long time ago.

Me and ol’ Willie , lordy, we’ve been sold and bought.
I guess you all heard about some kind of system that we fought.
We ain’t the only outlaws, just the only ones they caught.
They tried to run us off but Willie’s slow.
I quit runnin’ a long time ago.



[Thanks to Briana Carson for lyrics]
