What would willie do by Gary Allan

What would willie do (Sang)
I was lost in trouble and strife,
I heard a voice and it changed my life
And now it's a brand new day,
And I ain't afraid to say.
You're not alone when you're down and out
And I think you know who I'm talking about
When I don't know how I'll get through
I ask myself what would Willie do?

What would Willie do,
Well, he'd travel so far
With nothing but a song and his old guitar
And a tour bus and some semi-trucks,
Thirty crew men and a little bit of luck
Well, he loves all the people, the ugly and the randy
If you don't believe me take a look at the family
And they'll tell you that it's true
When skies are gray what would Willie do?

Well, long ago when he came unto us,
His words were simple but they went right through us
And the whole world sang along,
But then they didn't want to hear his songs
He was gone and we thought we'd lost him
But he grew his hair and he moved to Austin
And all of the people smiled,
They came to hear him sing from miles
Like a miracle all those rednecks and hippies
From New York City down to Mississippi
Stood together and raised a brew
When it's all gone wrong what would Willie do?

(Spoken)
You know sometimes I wonder
When I ain't gettin' nowhere
What would old Willie do
When it all gets too much to bear
And I can see him on his lonely old tour bus
And he's got his problems just like any of us
Well, he'd just take a deep breath
And then he'd let it all go
And he'd take another deep breath and let it all go
And he'd take another deep breath, and he'd hold it
Ah, and I bet he'd feel hungry
In a way that seems strange
Yeah hungry, for all the things that he just can't change
Like the time he passed out in is own bedroom
And his wife sewed him up in the sheets
And beat him with a broom, and he forgave her
And you think that's rough,
Well, then the IRS came and they took away all of his stuff
They took his golf course and his recording studio,
And he just went out and did another show.

(Sang)
So when it's all coming down on you
You better ask yourself what would Willie do?

What would Willie do,
Well, he'd take a little time
And talk to old rooster
As he'd drive on down the line
And there's millions down that road,
And with a word he's gonna lighten their load
He loves all the people no matter their races
Hell, he even had a hit country song with Julio Iglesias
And that ain't easy to do, so when it's all too much,
What would Willie
When the game gets tough what would Willie
When they call your bluff what would Willie do?..
