Chorus:
Hey Willie let's pack up and catch us a slow train
And go back to Phoenix to a far brighter day
Where stars were for shining in the Arizona sky
And music meant more than fortune or fame

Verse 1:
Willie, we wandered from border to border
Singing our stories and living our songs
Seems the farther we go, all that grows closer
Is a mind full of memories we made years ago

Chorus.

Verse 2:
We rolled through the towns like a bus load of gypsies
Motels and hotels ain't no place to stay
The favors we're taking, the money we're making
Won't pay for the living,we're giving away

Chorus.
