"Willie Nelson" as written by and Dan Maines Richard Timothy Sult....
Blackjack booted demons
Have surrounded my home
Got dogs and 'copters
And keep ringing my phone

Well I don't know if I'm coming or going
If it's them or me
Oh, but one things for certain
Willie Nelson only smokes killer weed

Now they're breaking my windows
Banging on my doors
Got me down and hog-tied
Rifling through my drawers
Boss demon tells me
Oh how he would like to kill me
Save your bullets tough guy
My disease does that for free

Well I don't know if I'm coming or going
If it's them or me
Oh, but one things for certain
Willie Nelson only smokes killer weed
Well I don't know if I'm coming or going
If it's them or me
Oh, but one things for certain
Willie Nelson only smokes the greenest green
Well I don't know if I'm coming or going
If it's them or me
Oh, but one things for certain
Willie Nelson only smokes killer weed

    My InterpretationHonestly, I think this song is about police profiling and how ridiculous it is. In the song, the cops are obviously raiding his house, harassing him, threatening him and try to find drug paraphernalia, probably without good cause. He's not sure what is happening, or who to blame (hence the first part of the chorus) but he knows all the while the top rich people smoke weed or whatever and openly admit to it and glorify it and everyone knows they do, yet you don't see the cops raiding their house and harassing them. But that's just my interpretation.

    p.s. the line "wait a minute tough guy" is actually "save your bullets tough guy" I understand though, it's hard to tell exactly what Neil is singing in many of his songs.

    General CommentI think this song is about Willie Nelson only smoking killer weed, lol. And maybe the IRS.

    General Commentalright so im thinkin this guy is either a meth-head or some kinda crazy person. either way hes out of it and the cops are bustin into his house to arrest him.

    i think the part that says "my disease does that for free" means he knows his addiction is killing him

    the title line is supposed to be like a one liner joke. the rest of the song has a pretty serious but that line is kind of ironic.

    and its not "the killer weed" its "willie nelson only smokes killer weed" theres no the in there

    also its probably about the DEA or FBI instead of the IRS

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious that this song is about a person who uses medical marijuana getting busted.

    General CommentI just figured it was a song about a brown acid trip, but thieving fellow-potheads is also a likely scenario.
