Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson - American Tune

And many times confused

Yes, and I've often felt forsaken

And certainly misused

Oh but I'm alright, I'm alright

Just weary to my bones

Still you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant

So far away from home

So far away from home

Don't know a soul who has not been battered

Don't have a friend who feels at ease

I don't know a dream that's not been shattered

Or diven to its knees

Oh, but it's alright, it's alright

For we've lived so well so long

Still when I think of the road we're travelin' on

I wonder what's gone wrong

I can't help it, I wonder what's gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying

I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly

Looking back down at me, smiled reassuredly

I dreamed I was flying

High up above my eyes could clearly see

The statue of liberty sailing away to sea

And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call the Mayflower

Come on the ship that sails the moon

We come in the age's most uncertain hours

And sing an American tune

Oh but it's alright, it's alright

Can't be forever blessed

Still tomorrow's gonna be another working day

And I try to get some rest

That's all I'm trying, to get some rest
