WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS written by Willie Nelson
performed by Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson

Capo on the 2nd fret.

Verse 1 (W. Nelson):
C/G                        F                    C/G
You call us heathens with zero respect for the law
We are only songwriters just writing our songs and that's all
C/G                       F                           C/G  
We write what we live and we live what we write is that wrong 
If you think it is Mr. Music Executive        G                           C/G  
Why don't you write your own songs

Chorus (W. Nelson):
C/G                      G                        C/G   
And don't listen to mine,they might run you crazy
C                                                     G  
They might make you dwell on your feelings a moment too long
                  F                       C/G
We're making you rich and you're already lazy
So just lay on your ass and get richer or write your own songs

Verse 2 (W. Jennings):
Mr. Purified Country don't you know 
What the whole things about
Is your head up your ass so far that you can't pull it out
The world's getting smaller and everyone in it belongs
And if you can't see that Mr. Purified Country
Why don't you just write your own songs

                                         G                        C/G 
So just lay on your ass and get richer or write your own songs
