Little Feat – Willin' lyrics

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 all about the journey - plenty of hardships but taking comfort where you can. Whether it refers to the literal life of the long road trucker or the life and times of the Everyman, doesn't matter. Just getting though and surviving best you can. It's about overcoming adversity and enjoying the little things.

    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.

    My favourite song, ever, it seems to fit situations and at this time nearly 40 years on it's going to be the story of a section of the pacific crest trail from tehachapi to join the jmt on through the sierra, not to tonopah in nevada but down into yosemite. In my mind I'm always in california have been since the 70's, didn't get there til a couple of years ago, now we can't stay away.

    He's a truck drivin' man just trying to make ends meet. Had to be movin', takin' the jobs that come, don't want to leave his pretty alice, hopin' he'll be home soon every time he goes out. Drivin' has always been tough and the life demanded a little comfort and plenty of awake and alert, long hours, and seein'a sign gave comfort and some degree of safe, knowing that meant the person hiring was part of the cog in a bigger machine, that he knew he was part of (sometimes unspoken. Just the sign). Takin' the backroads 'cause to make any kind of decent money you were usually carrying over your weigh limit, and drove many more hours than was allowed. If you got stopped you got weighed, and you had to show your log, which could mean a fine and some down time, there goes you paycheck. Mexico. We'll back in the day, it could be good!

    This song's about the miles and trials of a drifter. I've been down the kinda endless roads on a Harley and in the cab of a Pete and it seemed the road would never end. But as Little Feat put it in one of the greatest ever songs. I was willin, to be movin. My long road finally brought me to peace and happiness (after 4 marriages) to the right place and right woman. The song is a testament to rollin' on till you get to that "place". Here's hopein' y'all get there too.
