Waylon Jennings – Guitars That Won't Stay In Tune lyrics

Well I grew up lean and hungry I worked hard for my money
Said I'm gonna live my life the way I please
Spent some time on the road of life saw an angel once and the devil twice
I came across some things that I don't need
Like a cold hearted women whiskey in my water
And only one way out of a motel room
Payments on the Cadillac and too many questions
And old guitars that just won't stay in tune
You know there's good and bad breaks you learn from your mistakes
It's all in how you handle them do's and don'ts
A hillbilly boy is hard to convice wild and stubborn and not much sense
But I've got enough to know what I don't want
Like a cold hearted women whiskey in my water...
And old guitars that just won't stay in tune
