Shotgun Willie

Album: Shotgun Willie (1973)
  • Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
    Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
    Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

    Well you can't make a record if you ain't got nothing to say
    You can't make a record if you ain't got nothing to say
    You can't play music if you don't know nothing to play
    Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
    Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
    Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

    Now John T. Floores was working for the Ku Klux Klan
    The six foot five John T. was a hell of a man
    Made a lotta money selling sheets on the family plan
    Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
    Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
    Shotgun Willie's got all his family there Writer/s: WILLIE NELSON
