"I'd Have To Be Crazy (To Fall Out Of Love With You)" as written by and Steven Fromholz....
I'd have to be crazy
To stop all my singing
And never play music again

You'd call me a fool
If I grabbed up a top hat
And ran out to flag down the wind

I'd have to be weird
To grow me a beard
Just to see what the rednecks would do

But I'd have to be crazy
Plum out of my mind
To fall out of love with you

Now I know I've done weird things
I told people I heard things
When silence was all that abounds

Been days when it pleased me
To be on my knees
Following ants, as they crawled across the ground

I've been insane on a train
But I'm still me again
The place where I hold you is true

So I know I'm alright
'Cause I'd have to be crazy
To fall out of love with you

Now I don't intend to
But should there come a day
When I say that I don't love you
You can love me away

I sure would be dingy
To live in an envelope
Waiting alone for a stamp

You'd swear I was loco
To rub for a genie
While burning my hand on the lamp

And I may not be normal
But nobody is
So I'd like to say 'fore I'm through

I'd have to be crazy
Plumb out of my mind
To fall out of love with you

I'd have to be crazy
Plumb out of my mind
To fall out of love with you

    General CommentThe song was written by Steve Fromholz, who sang along on the recording. It's tricky to sing since nothing in the lyric repeats. What repeats is the chords, even though they have a jazzy major 7th chord which is right down Willie's avenue. Easy to play too.
