a long time ago  Waylon Jennings

        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[G#]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[G#]it running a long time ag[C#]o
Thanks to David M. Potter ( for the lyrics.
