******************* A LONG TIME AGO *******************

performed by Waylon Jennings.

Capo on the 2nd fret.

Verse 1:
	I don't look the way the average cowboy singer looks
	I'll admit i've taken things i never should of took
	You can read a different story in a lot of different books
	But even then you won't really know
                F#               B  
	How it was a long time ago

Verse 2:
	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
               F#                          B 
	And i learned to fly a long time ago

Verse 3:
	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
	Don't ask me who i gave my seat to on that plane
	I think you already know
           F#                         B
	I told you that a long time ago

Verse 4:(a tone higher)
	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
            G#                       C# 
	I quit running a long time ago

Thanks to David M. Potter ( for the lyrics.
