  • I'm a long gone Waylon song on vinyl
    I'm a back row center at a tent revival
    But she believes in me like she believes her Bible
    And loves me like Jesus does

    I'm a lead foot leaning on a souped up Chevy
    I'm a good ol' boy, drinkin' whiskey and rye on the levee
    But she carries me when my sins make me heavy
    And loves me like Jesus does

    All the crazy in my dreams
    And both my broken wings
    Every single piece of everything I am
    And she knows the man I ain't
    She forgives me when I can't
    The devil, man, no, he don't stand a chance
    'Cause she loves me like Jesus does

    I always thought she'd give up on me one day
    Wash her hands of me, leave me staring down some runway
    But I thank God each night and twice on Sunday
    That she loves me like Jesus does

    All the crazy in my dreams
    And both my broken wings
    Every single piece of who I am
    Yeah, she knows the man I ain't
    She forgives me when I can't
    And the devil, man, no, he don't have a prayer
    'Cause she loves me like Jesus does

    Yeah, she knows the man I ain't
    She forgives me when I can't
    That devil, man, he don't stand a chance
    She loves me like Jesus does
