Luckenbach, Texas Lyrics

by Willie Nelson

The only two things in life that make it worth living
Is guitars tuned good and firm feeling women
I don't need my name in the marquee lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're living
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between Hank Williams' pain songs
An' Newberry's train songs
An' blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain't nobody feeling no pain

So baby, let's sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society, you cry all day

We've been so busy keeping up with the Jones
Four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're living
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between Hank Williams' pain songs
An Newberry's train songs
An' blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain't nobody feeling no pain.

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're living's
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between the Hank Williams' pain songs
An Jerry Jeff's train songs
An' blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain't nobody feeling no pain
