What Would Willie Do
NOTE: Capo on 4th Fret VERSE 1 D I was lost in trouble and strife G I heard a voice and it changed my life D Now it's a brand new day A and I ain't afraid to say D You're not alone when you're down and out G and I think you know who I'm talking about When I don't know how I'll get through A G A D I ask myself What would Willie do? CHORUS 1 D What would Willie do, well he'd travel so far G with nothing but a song and his old guitar D And a tour bus and some semi-trucks, A Thirty crew men and a little bit of luck A Well he loves all the people, the ugly and the randy G if you don't believe me take a look at the family D and they'll tell you that it's true G A D When skies are gray what would Willie do? VERSE 2 D Well long ago he came unto us, G his words were simple but they went right through us D and the whole world sang along A but then they didn't want to hear his songs. D He was gone and we thought we'd lost him G but he grew his hair and he moved to Austin, D and all of the people smiled, they came to hear him sing from miles. G A Like a miracle all those rednecks and hippies D G from New York city down to Mississippi D stood together and raised a brew A G A When it's all gone wrong what would Willie do? BRIDGE D You know sometimes I wonder when I ain't getting nowhere G just what would old Willie do when it all gets too much to bear D I can see him on his lonely old tour bus A he's got problems just like any of us D Well he'd just take a deep breath and then he'd let it all go, G then he'd take another deep breath and let it all go, D A and he'd take another deep breath and he'd hold it. D Aaah and I'd bet he'd feel hungry in a way that seems strange, G yeah hungry for all the things that he just can't change. D Like the time he passed out in his own bedroom A and his wife sewed him up the sheets and beat him with a broom and he forgave her D And you think that's rough G well then the IRS came and they took away all of his stuff D They took his golf course, his recording studio A and he just went out and did another show G A So when it's all coming down on you G G A D better ask yourself what would Willie do? CHORUS 2 D What would Willie do well he'd take a little time G and talk to old Rooster as he'd drive on down the line D and there's millions down that road A and with a word he's gonna lighten their load D He loves all the people no matter their races, G hell he even had a hit country song with Julio Iglesias D and that ain't easy to do A G So when it's all too much what would Willie D A when the game gets tough what would Willie D G A D when they call your bluff what would Willie do?
