Waylon Jennings – I've Always Been Crazy lyrics

Verse 1:
I've always been crazy and the trouble that it's put me through
I've been busted for things that I did, and I didn't do
I can't say I'm proud of all of the things that I've done
But I can say I've never intentionally hurt anyone

Verse 2:
I've always been different with one foot over the line
Winding up somewhere one step ahead or behind
It ain't been so easy but I guess I shouldn't complain
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane

Verse 3:
Beautiful lady are you sure that you understand
The chances your taking loving a free living man
Are you really sure you really want what you see
Be careful of something that's just what you want it to be

Verse 4:
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane
Nobody knows if it's something to bless or to blame
So far I ain't found a rhyme or a reason to change
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane

    There's absolutely nothing hidden about the meaning of these lines. Just read it as a warning to the girlfriend that the man (Waylon Jennings, I assume) ain't trying to fit into the "norm". He's going his own way and doesn't want anyone getting caught in the whirlwind it might cause unless they know the fats up front.

    These were the words waylon said to jessi when they got together.
    Waylon got me through a very hard time during the death of 4 siblings within a 24 month period, my brother committing suicide lastly. He couldn't take the pain of loosing my brother patrick after looking after him for 25 years. Patrick was a victim of a hit & run & was severely brain damaged. Breda was found dead in her flat in london, england. She had been dead some time. Marie was diagnosed with cancer & was dead in 3 months. Only for waylons music played loud & drinking bottles of rum & coke, I too would have suicided.
    I'm 61 & diabetic so I think a lot about waylon these days. I thank god for him.
