"Bob Wills Is Still the King" as written by and Waylon Jennings....
Here's a song I wrote on a plane between Dallas and Austin
Goin' to El Paso
Now this is what gave us the idea to come down here,
This is a song about a guy that probably did as much for
Our kind of music as anybody.

Well the Honky Tonks in Texas were my natural second home
The way you tip your hat to the ladies in the rose of San Antone

I grew up on music that we call western swing
It don't matter whose in Austin, Bob Wills is still the King

Lord, I can still remember the way things were back then
In spite of all the hard times I'd live it all again
To hear the Texas Playboys and Tommy Duncan sing
Makes me proud to be from Texas where Bob Wills is still the King

You can hear the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville Tennessee
Its the home of country music on that we all agree
But when you cross that ol' Red River hoss,
That just don't mean a thing
Once you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the King

If you ain't never been there, then I guess you aint been told
That you just can't live in Texas unless you got alot of soul
Its the home of Willie Nelson, the home of western swing
He'll be the first to tell you, Bob Wills is still the King.
