WILLIE NELSON lyrics - Django And Jimmie
WILLIE NELSON
"Django And Jimmie"
feat. Merle Haggard
(Jimmy Melton, Jeff Prince)

I'm a kid with a guitar
Trying to play, when they ask
Where does your style come from?
I know what you mean
Because I learned to sing
Listening to blue, yodel number one
We love Hank and Lefty
Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, and Johnny Cash
But if we had to pin point
The start of who we are
Or who we go by

The Django and Jimmie
Has Mississippi
A young singing Brakeman
A jazz playing gypsy
Might not have been
A Merle or a Willie
If not for a Django and Jimmie

Through the twenties and thirties
Jimmie sang his way to the top
In spite of those old TB blues
Django was a star
He burned up a guitar
With just two good fingers to use
You can't turn back time
Or put more sand in the glass
But sometimes at night
I close my eyes and go back

The Django and Jimmie
Has Mississippi
A young singing Brakeman
A jazz playing gypsy
Might not have been
A Merle or a Willie
If not for a Django and Jimmie
