Lowell George
I been warped by the rain, driven by the snow
I'm drunk and dirty don't ya know, and I'm still, willin'
Out on the road late at night, Seen my pretty Alice in every head light
Alice, Dallas Alice

I've been from Tuscon to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I'll be willin', to be movin'

I've been kicked by the wind, robbed by the sleet
Had my head stoved in, but I'm still on my feet and I'm still... willin'
Now I smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico
Baked by the sun, every time I go to Mexico, and I'm still

And I been from Tuscon to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made
Driven the back roads so I wouldn't get weighed
And if you give me: weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I'll be willin', to be movin

    It's Billy Payne from Little Feat birthday and DST played Willin' this morning, for soem reason it always reminds me of my brother Michael. I don't know how many times Michael and I saw Little Feet together, but he loved that song. We have to put a horse to sleep here today so I was haveing a sad day to begin now I'm missing my brother...and it's raining. Little Feat always makes me smile though so here's to doing that "Dixie Chicken" to Little Feat with my wonderful brother.

    Man I first heard this back in the early seventies. To me it just hits the nerve and is vibrant of those times, I still love it and now I feel there is a lot of me in the words. Great song for a funeral or was that Gram Parsons he he. Thank you Lowell and the boys.

    My father died way to young at 44 years old. He always liked this song. He had his problems, for sure, but had a great and generous heart. He was unrepentantly willin'.

    I always knew this song the way Linda Ronstadt sang it Heard it today on my iPod and I had to check the lyrics because I was a little unsure of what I thought they were in my head. And they were! But a great song loved it in the 70's love it in 2014!

    As a kid I used to hear this being played Loudly in our house. On vinyl no less! To me its an old trucking' song. My dad drove otr for 19 years, and introduced me to these guys at a young age as well. Pops has been gone almost 7 years but every time I hear this song or anything from the "Waiting for Columbus" album, it's like he's still here. The only word I never could figure out was "Tonapah". Glad this site is here to clear that up and bring back a few memories.
