The only two things in life
That make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune good
And firm feelin' women
I don’t need my name in the marquee lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it’s time we got back to the basics of love

Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we’re livin'
Got us feudin' like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs
And Newbury’s train songs
And 'Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain'
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain’t nobody feelin' no pain

So, baby, let’s sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is chokin' me
In your high society, you cry all day
We’ve been so busy
Keepin' up with the Jones'
Four-car garage and we’re still buildin' on
Maybe it’s time we got back
To the basics of love

Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we’re livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs
And Newbury’s train songs
And 'Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain'
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain’t nobody feelin' no pain

Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Willie and Waylon and the boys
This successful life we’re livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs
And Jerry Jeff’s train songs
And 'Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain'
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
There ain’t nobody feelin' no pain
