A Long Time Ago
Recorded by Waylon Jennings
Written by Shel Silverstein and Waylon Jennings

C
I don't look the way the average cowboy singer looks
F
I'll admit I've taken things I never should'a took
G7
You can read a different story in a lot of different books
F
But even then you won't really know
G7 C
How it was a long time ago


Women have been my trouble since I found out they weren't men
F
In spite of that I stopped and took a wife now and then
G7
They built their fences high but they couldn't hold me in
F
I was born with a fire down below
G7 C
And I learned to fly a long time ago


Don't ask me about the years I spent out in the rain
F
About the ones I spent in love or the ones I spent insane
G7
Don't ask me who I gave my seat to on that plane
F
I think you already know
G7 C
I told you that a long time ago


Me and ol' Willie Lordy we've been sold and bought
F
I guess y'all heard about some kind of system that we fought
G7
We ain't the only outlaws just the only ones they caught
F
They tried to run us off but Willie's slow
G7 C
I quit running a long time ago
