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

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

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

Nippon Budokan, often shortened to simply Budokan, is an indoor arena located in Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan. Budokan was originally built for the judo competition in the 1964 Summer Olympics, hence its name, which translates in English as Martial Arts Hall.

Willie Nelson won his ninth Grammy Award on Sunday afternoon, in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category for his 2018 Frank Sinatra tribute “My Way.”

The legendary Texas native and longtime Austin-area resident last won in 2016 in the same category for “Summertime,” a tribute to the Gershwins.

Matt Rollings, who co-produced the album with Buddy Cannon, accepted on Nelson’s behalf at the the Grammys’ afternoon Premiere ceremony in Los Angeles. Most of the awards are given out before the nationally televised evening program.

Nelson also was nominated in the Best Traditional Roots Performance category for “Last Man Standing,” the title track to an album of all-original material he also released last year. The winner in that category was “The Joke” by Brandi Carlile, who quickly won two more Grammys, including Best Americana Album. Carlile is a headliner at the Old Settler’s Music Festival near Lockhart in April.

In addition to the nine traditional Grammys he has received, Nelson also has been honored three times with special awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000.
