Waylon Jennings performs "Bob Wills is Still the King",live Video

"Bob Wills Is Still the King" is a song written and performed by American country music artist Waylon Jennings, as a tribute of sorts to the Western swing icon Bob Wills.

It is known in two forms. A live recording of the song was released in June 1975 as the concluding track on the album Dreaming My Dreams, and then appeared in August 1975 as the B-side of "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way", the second single from the album. By early November, the A-side had risen to number one on the country singles chart, but the B-side gained considerable airplay as well, enough so that Billboard listed it as a two-sided hit whereas Cashbox showed it with just the A-side listed.A studio version of the song was released in March 1976 on the Mackintosh & T.J. film soundtrack album.


Waylon Jennings Bob Wills is Still the King Lyrics 

Well the honky-tonks in Texas were my natural second home

Where you tip your hats to the ladies and the rose of San Antone

I grew up on music that we called western swing

It don't matter who's in Austin,Bob Wills is still the king

Lord I can still remember,the way things were back then

In spite of all the hard times,I'd live it all again

To hear the Texas playboys and Tommy Duncan sing

Makes me proud to be from Texas where Bob Wills is still the king

You can hear the Grand Old Opry in Nashville Tennessee

It's the home of country music,on that we all agree

But when you cross that old Red River hoss

That just don't mean a thing

Because once you're down in Texas,Bob Wills is still the king

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
