Three Chords and the Truth ( Willie’s Song )

29 06 2010

I’m just an old cowboy singer passed his prime
Trying to live off singing in 3/4 time
Strumming my guitar and scratching my beard
Playing the old tunes people need to hear
I’m just their jukebox and they supply the dimes

Some people look and they feel sorry for me
Still riding a bus and playing at 73
They say I should quit and give up the road
But once you do that’s when you get old
Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need

Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need
To make it through life, that is best for me
With a shot of Vermouth to chase the blues away
Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need to play

I’ve seen the music change throughout the years
And many a rising and falling careers
Living fast and grabbing that old brass ring
Fame, fortune and fans and all that it brings
But has their music left the world sincere

Music is a world where we all believe
That every song written is just for you and me
It touches the heart and fills a void
A three-minute session with Sigmund Freud
Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need

Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need
To make it through life, that is best for me
With a shot of Vermouth to chase the blues away
Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need to play

This life has chosen me, the day I was born
To spread a little sunshine through the thorns
A simple melody can turn the day around
And a time that you lost can again be found
Like an old pair of boots, that have been well-worn

I’m just an old cowboy, that’s plain to see
Up on this stage, singing for you and me
Sharing my songs is the key to this world
A diamond in the rough or an ocean’s pearl
Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need

Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need
To make it through life, that is best for me
With a shot of Vermouth to chase the blues away
Three Chords and the Truth, that’s all you need to play
