Mr. Cash has got that lick America loves.
Hank's songs came direct from Heaven above.
But the music I got straight from the horse's mouth.
Yeah Waylon's guitar had that sound.

I got my first lesson from him around '73.
He didn't lonesome or ornery to me.
He was about the nicest guy I've ever met on the road.
Yeah Waylon's guitar could carry the load.

"You've gotta take that E string Hank and turn it down
"You've gotta have that half time beat that walks around"
Now I love Betts and Duane and theres a lot of hot hands around.
But Waylon's guitar had that sound.
Yeah.

"You've gotta get a Fender Tele and dress it in black.
"Put leather all around it, so your buckle won't scratch the back"
Now I'm into Eric and Keith and theres a lot of hot hands around.
But Waylon's guitar had that sound.

You've gotta get a Fender Telecaster and dress it in black!
Put leather all around it, so a cowboy won't scratch the back!

You know how them cowboys are.
