lyrics

It took me 31 years to have a date
with my red headed stranger that takes the cake
met my share of devils ahh even angels but none can take the place of good ol Willie
I've sang those songs since I was wee high
messed around and married another guy who wasn't good ol Willie
I didn't make a whole album just to him
I'm not namin names but who’s to blame
You know that voice from a mile away
there is somethin graceful and full of pain
as my daddy lay dyin I begged him to go
to his pony named trigger far from this home.
We all have those stars that sit ever so high
that for some frickin reason put the twinkle back in our eyes
It took me 31 years to have a date
with my red headed stranger that takes the cake
met my share of devils even angels but none can take the place of good ol Willie
I've sang those songs since I was wee high
messed around and married another guy who wasn't good ol Willie
I could beat myself up but what fun would that be
we all gotta have somethin not quite in reach
when the deals gone south
and there is no end in sight
In lieu of the memories I’ll take tonight
