A Long Time Ago  Waylon Jennings


******************* A LONG TIME AGO *******************
performed by Waylon Jennings.
Capo on the 2nd fret.
Verse 1:
I[B] don't look the way the average cowboy singer looks
I'll [E]admit i've taken things i never should of took
You can r[F#]ead a different story in a lot of different books
But [E]even then you won't really know
How it w[F#]as a long time ag[B]o
Verse 2:
W[B]omen have been my trouble since i found out they weren't men
In sp[E]ite of that i stopped and took a wife now and then
They b[F#]uilt their fences high but they couldn't hold me in
I was b[E]orn with a fire down below
And i l[F#]earned to fly a long time ag[B]o
Verse 3:
D[B]on't ask me about the years i spent out in the rain
Abo[E]ut the ones i spent in love or the ones i spent insane
Don't [F#]ask me who i gave my seat to on that plane
I th[E]ink you already know
I t[F#]old you that a long time ag[B]o
Verse 4:(a tone higher)
M[C#]e and ol' Willie,lordy we've been sold and bought
I gu[F#]ess you all heard about some kind of system that we fought
We a[Ab]in't the only outlaws just the only ones they caught
They tr[F#]ied to run us off but Willie's slow
I qu[Ab]it running a long time ag[C#]o
