Me And Willie (Remastered LP Version) - Emmylou Harris

Me and Willie played in a country band

 

Seven long years together

 

playing those one night stands

 

Used to say the booze and bars

is going to wear him out

 

Hold on, a song he wrote

 

tear your heart right out

 

We traveled the northern route

and from the Greate Lakes to Monreal

 

Hitting all the honkytonks,

 

I bet we played them all

 

Willie played to ease his soul and

drank to ease his mind

 

I never understood how he played it so good while

drinking himself half blind.

 

And you

wouldn't think a man so weak

 

could be so strong

 

Take a crowd of rowdy drunks and

 

hush them with a song.

And I'd rather be singing my heart out

 

in a dark and dingy bar.

Hitting those high notes with

Willie's sad guitar.

And I'd rather be singing a blues song

 

singing sweet and high.

 

Willie standing right by my side

playing country slide.

 

Me and Willie watched a lot of dreams die young.

 

Plans we made how quick they fade,

 

fumbling one by one.

 

Willie never let it bother him and if he did,

 

it didn't show.

 

You know he had a way of letting go

 

am the blue times old.

 

And you wouldn't think a man so weak,

 

could be so strong.

 

Take the blues right out of you

 

and put them in a song.

I'd rather be singing my heart out

 

in a dark and dingy bar.

 

Hitting those high notes with

Willie's sad guitar.

And I'd rather be singing a blues song

 

singing sweet and high.

 

Willie standing right by my side

 

playing country slide.

 

I left Willie in a bar in Marietta

 

Couldn't stand to watch the man

I love drink himself to death.

 

Now I'm working in Ottawa

 

and I'm doing well I guess.

 

You know the good life don't look so good

 

from behind a desk.

 

And I'd rather be singing my heart out

 

in a dark and dingy bar.

Hitting those high notes with

Willie's sad guitar.

And I'd rather be singing a blues song

 

singing sweet and high.

 

Willie standing right by my side

 

playing country slide.
