Lord, it's the same old thing Fiddle and guitar Where do we take it from here? Rhinestone suits new shiny car Well, It's been the same way for years It's bound to change.
Somebody told me when I came to Nashville "Son you finally got it made" Ole Waylon made it here and we're all sure that you will But I don't think Waylon done it this way No, I don't think Waylon done it this way.
Ten years on the road making one night stands Speeding my young life away Tell me one more time just so's I'll understand Are you sure Waylon done it this way? Did ole Waylon done it this way?
I've seen the world with an eight piece band Looking at the back side of me Singing my songs one of his now and then But I don't think Waylon done it this way No,I don't think Waylon done it this way.
Woke up this morning, it was drizzin' rain Around the curve come a long black train Heard somebody yodel and a hobo moan Jimmy he's dead he's been a long time gone.
