George Strait Covering Waylon Jennings’ “Waymore’s Blues” Is All You Need To See Today


Before COVID really hit in February, George Strait was performing in Vegas when he took a break from singing his countless hits to honor a legend, the legend Waylon Jennings.

He crushed a cover of “Waymore’s Blues” and that crease in the jeans was electric as always.

Lyrics, if ya wanna sing along…

Well, I woke up this mornin’ it was drizzlin’ rain
Around the curve come a passenger train
Heard somebody yodel and a hobo moan
Jimmy he’s dead, he’s been a long time gone
Been a long time gone, a long time gone

If you wanna get to heaven, gotta D-I-E
You’ve gotta put on your coat and T-I-E
If you wanna get the rabbit out of the L-O-G
You’ve gotta make a commotion like D-O-G
Now, like D-O-G, like D-O-G, yeah

Well, I’ve got a good woman, what’s the matter with me?
What makes me wanna love every woman I see?
I was travelin’ when I met her, now I’m travelin’ again
And every woman she sees looks like a place I came in
Looks like a place I came in, a place I came in

I’ve got my name painted on my shirt
I ain’t no ordinary dude
I don’t have to work
I don’t have to work
