Willie Nelson

Everybody needs a hero
Willie Nelson’s mine
I knew when I first heard him sing
He sounded truly fine
But then I came to understand
The politics of hair
And when someone needs taking down
The way that Willie’s there
He’s always been about for me
With wisdom and with song
Helping me to understand
It’s okay to be strong
The guy now looks as old as dirt
Just like he doesn’t own a shirt
But still if you look into that face
You see a life that’s lived with grace
Everybody needs a hero
Willie Nelson’s mine…
