Willie Nelson and the Honeysuckle Rose II

“It make me feel good to gaze out of the windows of the bus at the towns and signs and landscapes going past,” says Willie Nelson.  “It’s like the other side of the feeling I got when I was a little kid and heard a railroad train whistling and rumbling into the distance in the middle of the night.  This is what might have happened if you had ever really caught that mysterious midnight train.”

“You’ve got a home, but you don’t have to stay too long in one place,” he says.  “My bus is like a cocoon too that I can seal myself up in in if I need to be alone… I can be close enough to the so-called real world that I could reach out and touch it from inside Honeysuckle Rose, yet I can be as quiet and alone as I wish.”

— Willie Nelson
