Waylon Jennings performs "Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)".

"Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)" is a song recorded by the American country music artist Waylon Jennings. It was released in April 1977 as the first single from the album Ol' Waylon. It was written by Chips Moman and Bobby Emmons.

The song refers to a couple whose position in "high society" has placed strains on their marriage ("this successful life we're livin' got us feudin' like the Hatfields and McCoys") and finances ("four-car garage, and we're still buildin' on"). Jennings suggests that the couple return to "the basics of love" and relocate to the small town of Luckenbach, Texas.

Waylon Jennings - Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)

 

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 feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between Hank Williams' pain songs and

Newberry'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 choking 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 building 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 feudin'

Like the Hatfield and McCoys

Between Hank Williams' pain songs and

Newberry'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

Willie and Waylon and the boys

This successful life we're livin's got us feudin'

Like the Hatfield 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
