****************** BOB WILLS IS STILL THE KING ******************

Written and performed by Waylon Jennings.
[E]Well the honky-tonks in Texas were my [A]natural second [E]home
Where you tip your hat to the ladies and the Rose Of San Ant[B7]one
[A]I grew up on music that [E]we called Western Swing
It don't matter who's in Austin, Bob [B7]Wills is still the [E]king

[E]Lord I can still remember, the [A]way things were back [E]then
In spite of all the hard times, I'd live it all a[B7]gain
To [A]hear the Texas playboys and [E]Tommy Duncan sing
Makes me proud to be from Texas where Bob [B7]Wills is still the [E]king

You can [A]hear the Grand Ol' Opry in [E]Nashville Tennessee
It's the home of country music, on that we all a[B7]gree
But when you [E]cross that ol' Red River, Hoss, that [A]just don't mean a [E]thing
'Cause once you're down in Texas, Bob [B7]Wills is still the [E]king

Well if [A]you ain't never been there, then I [E]guess you ain't been told
That you just can't live in Texas unless you got a lot of [B7]soul
It's the [E]home of Willie Nelson, the [A]home of Western [E]Swing
He'll be the first to tell you, Bob [B7]Wills is still the [E]king
