Write Your Own Songs  Waylon Jennings

******************* WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS ********************
written by Willie Nelson
performed by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.
Capo on the 2nd fret.
Verse 1 (W. Nelson):
[C/G]You call us heathens with z[F]ero respect for the l[C/G]aw
We are only songwriters just writing our songs and that's [G]all
We w[C/G]rite what we live and we l[F]ive what we write is that wr[C/G]ong
If you think it is Mr. Music Executive
Wh[G]y don't you write your own s[C/G]ongs
Chorus (W. Nelson):
[C/G] And don't listen to m[G]ine,they might run you cr[C/G]azy
They might make you dwell on your feelings a moment too l[G]ong
We're making you r[F]ich and you're already l[C/G]azy
So just lay on your ass and get r[G]icher or write your own s[C/G]ongs
Verse 2 (W. Jennings):
[C/G]Mr. Purified Country don't you kn[F]ow what the whole things a[C/G]bout
Is your head up your ass so far that you can't pull it o[G]ut
The w[C/G]orld's getting smaller and [F]everyone in it bel[C/G]ongs
And if you can't see that Mr. Purified Country
Wh[G]y don't you just write your own s[C/G]ongs
So just lay on your ass and get r[G]icher or write your own s[C/G]ongs
Thanks to David M. Potter ( for the lyrics.
