Bob Wills is Still King 
performed by Waylon Jennings.


Verse 1:
Intro in E                                                 

E                                    A
Well the honky-tonks in Texas were my natural second home
         E                                                      B     
Where you tip your hats to the ladies and the rose of San Antone'
A                       E   
I grew up on music that we called western swing
E                        E7       B                    E         
It don't matter who's in Austin,Bob Wills is still the king


Verse 2:
E                          A                E 
And, Lord I still remember,the way things were back then
E                                                B
In spite of all the hard times,I'd live it all again
 A                            E 
To hear the Texas playboys and Tommy Duncan sing
E                          B  
Makes me proud to be from Texas 
   B7                         E
Where Bob Wills is still the king

 	 
Verse 3:
You can hear the Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville Tennessee
It's 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
Cause' once you're down in Texas,Bob Wills is still the king


Verse 4:
Well if you ain't never been there then i guess you ain't been told
That you just can't live in Texas unless you got a lot of soul
It's the home of Willie Nelson,the home of western swing
He'll be the first to tell you,Bob Wills is still the king.
