We’re Dyin’ as Fast as We Can

Willie didn’t call in to the Bill Mack Satellite Cowboy show yesterday; they announced that he was on a flight, or his way to catch a flight, home.  But the past two times Willie has been on the show, he sang a new song inspired by the Last of the Breed Tour he did with Merle Haggard and Ray Price last summer.  He sang the song Tuesday night at the BMI Award Show in Nashville, when receiving the BMI Icon award:  We’re Dyin’ as Fast as We Can

We’re dyin’ as fast as we can
We’re drinking and smoking and horsing around
We got women waiting for us all over town
With insurance policies held tight in their hand
We hate to throw a monkey wrench in their plans
We’re dyin’ as fast as we can
Don’t Push It
We’re dyin’ as fast as we can.
