Waylon Jennings recorded this HUGE country hit in 1977. It presents a strong case for getting back to basics in small town. Sounds good huh? Here's your Luckenbach Texas guitar lesson!

G                           D7                      G

There're only two things in life that make it worth living

     C                      D7           G

It's guitars tuned good and firm feeling women

C                                   G

I don't need my name in the marquis lights

   C                   D7            G

I got my song and I got you with me tonight

                       D7                    G

Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love



Let's go to Luckenbach Texas with Waylon and Willie and the boy's


This successful life we're living got us


Feuding like the Hatfield's and McCoy's


Between Hank William's pain song's and Newberry's train songs

     C                       Am

And Blue Eye's Crying in the Rain 

         D7       Am     D7                      G

Out in Luckenbach Texas  ain't nobody feeling no pain



So baby let's sell your diamond ring

Am                 D7               G

Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away


This coat and tie is choking me

Am             D7        G

in your high society you cry all day


We've been so busy keeping up with the Jones'

C                         A7

Four car garage and we're still building on

C          G            D7                     G

Maybe it's time  we got back to the basic's of love
