WILLIE NELSON lyrics : "BORN AND RAISED IN BLACK AND WHITE"

The wind blows hard across the Texas planes

Makes some people go insane


While others quietly pray for rain


That's where we came from




Two boys playing in the burning sun


One with books,one with guns

Mama calls but just one comes


The other one runs




1stChorus:


In a crystal sense of wrong and right


We were born and raised in black and white

One learned to pray,one loved to fight


We were born and raised in black and white


We were born and raised in black and white




Brother took to the gospel road


Spent his whole live saving souls

When he looked at me his blood ran cold


He didn't even try




I had no dreams,I had no plans


But a gun felt good in my right hand


The warden asked how come you killed that man

I said I don't know why





2nd Chorus:

Welcome home said the hot moonlight


We were born and raised in black and white


One lives to pray,one prays for life

We were born and raised in black and white


We were born and raised in black and white




Someone handed me a cigarette


They offered me my last request


I asked my mortal soul be blessed

By someone close to me




He came to me with trembling hands


He swore he'd never understand

I said it's just what life had planned

It's destiny




4th Chorus:


Don't waste your tears on me tonight

We were born and raised in black and white

I chose the dark,you chased the light


We were born and raised in black and white

We were born and raised in black and white




(Repeat first verse)
