THE MAKIN'S OF A SONG - Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson
Transcribed by Casey Newbold - Kerr (waylon@ihug.com.au).

This is from their 'Clean Shirt' album, which was available on CD since its 
1991 release, but has just (mid-late 2000) gone out of print. That's a shame, 
because it's a unique and rather fun album. Ah well. It's a cool song to play - 
I love the words of the chorus, for some reason... :)

If you want to purchase the CD, check ebay.com and online used CD stores. It 
sometimes pops up there.


CAPO ON FIRST FRET


VERSE ONE (WAYLON):
A
Before you pack your suitcase call your mama
Up till now she's taught you all you need to know
E
Think of me as kinda like your daddy
                                 A
Teaching you the ol' rules of the road


VERSE TWO (WILLIE):
You won't be no superstar tomorrow
You've gotta take the time to pay your dues
When you start to feel at home out on the highway
You're damn sure qualified to sing the blues


CHORUS (BOTH):
D                               A
Always send the big guy for the money
      D                            A
Don't give 'em no excuse to do you wrong
D                                   A
Even when you lose you're still the winner
   E                                A
At least you've got the makin's of a song


VERSE THREE (WILLIE FOR FIRST TWO LINES, WAYLON FOR LAST TWO):
Don't comprimise your feelings when they matter
They'll come back to haunt you, don't you know?
The songs you sing today you'll sing tomorrow
If you don't give up the music for the show


CHORUS


   E                                 A
At least you've got the makin's of a song
