Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver, “Willie, the Wandering Gypsy and Me” (Luck Reunion)

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

The crowd went crazy when Billy Joe Shaver joined Willie Nelson on stage last night at the Luck Reunion, at Willie’s western ranch outside Austin. The two friends conferred for a minute, and then broke in to “Willie, the Wandering Gypsy, and me. Willie played the song on Trigger like he did it every night. He is an amazing guitar player. Billy Joe is such a story teller, incredible songwriter and so much fun to watch.

Willie Nelson has announced the lineup for his storied 4th of July Picnic, held this year at the Circuit of the Americas racetrack in Austin, Texas. The roster is among the Independence Day party’s most diverse, with aggro-country outlaw Brantley Gilbert sharing space with Lone Star state songbird Lee Ann Womack.

Founded in 1973, Nelson staged his inaugural picnic in Dripping Springs, Texas, just outside of Austin. Last year’s event featured Eric Church, frequent Nelson collaborator Kacey Musgraves, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell and the late Merle Haggard.

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 20th, at 10:00 a.m. CT via Ticketmaster, Live Nation and the Circuit of the Americas website.

“I got the idea from Woodstock about how music could bring people from different places together,” Nelson said last year about the picnic. “I had just moved to Austin and had come to realize what a great music center it was and could be. I thought it would be a nice idea to this year have it back in Austin.”

The always-on-the-road Nelson is also set to perform at the 2016 Austin City Limits Festival Hall of Fame Inductions on October 12th, as well as headline the ACL Fest’s two weekends earlier that month.

“Willie, the Wandering Gypsy, and Me” — Billy Joe Shaver

Three fingers whiskey pleasures the drinkers
And moving does more than the same thing for me
Willy he tells me that doers and thinkers
Say, Movin’ is a closest thing to being free

He rosins his riggins laid back his wages
He’s dead certain ridin’ the big rodeo
My woman’s tight with an overdue baby
And Willy keeps yelling, Hey Gypsy let’s go

Willy you’re wild as a Texas Blue Norther
Ready rolled from the same makins as me
Well, I reckon we’re gonna ramble till Hell freeze us over
Willy the wandering Gypsy and me

Well ladies we surely will take of your favors
And we’ll surely warn you there never will be
A single soul living that could put brand or handle
On Willy the wandering Gypsy and me

We’ll dance on the mountains, shout in the canyons
Swarm it ain’t loose herd like a wild buffalo
Jammin’ our heads full of figures
And angles and tellin’ us stuff that we already know

Willy you’re wild as a Texas Blue Norther
Ready rolled from the same makins as me
Well, I reckon we’re gonna ramble till Hell freezes over
Willy the wandering Gypsy and me

Yeah, Willy you’re wild as a Texas Blue Norther
Ready rolled from the same makins as me
And I reckon we’re gonna ramble till Hell freeze us over
Willy the wandering Gypsy and me
