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
