Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson - Pancho & Lefty

We called roaches butterflies and ate our pies at Birchwood Saloon

Off the only road that leaves the state, I would sing and pass the plate

They all knew me by my face and my father’s name

Heavy letter underneath my door, stark reminder when I had before

It’s hard to believe I’ve come this far

Heavy letter in the dresser drawer tore it open like a candy bar

It’s hard to believe I’ve come this far

Bright red hot rod hardtop off to town for Moose’s Tooth

You comin’ with? To the parkin’ lot?

If not, you know my window’s never locked

Drew leaned in and said it but his heart wouldn’t let it

That’s all right, I’ll be my husband’s wife

Heavy letter makes a perfect mark on the page and in the heart

It’s hard to believe I’ve come this far

Heavy letter in the dresser drawer tore it open like a candy bar

It’s hard to believe I’ve come this far

Nervous tearing through the sky, grieving every inch I gain

Counting pools and freeways, I will sing and pass the plate

They will know me by my face and my father’s name

Heavy letter in the dresser drawer tore it open like a candy bar

It’s hard to believe I’ve come this far

Heavy letter headed for your shore, a premonition of what’s in store

It’s hard to believe we’ve come this far
