Reason 83, Why we love Willie

Heh:

When they write the history of country music, Willie Nelson will be a chapter and Kenny Chesney will be a sentence.

On his new Moment Of Forever album, produced by Chesney, Willie covers Randy Newman’s classic Lousiana, 1927. But Willie drops the year out of the title and changes the words up a bit:

Prezdent came down in his big airplane
With his little fat man with a note pad in his hand
Prezdent say, “Little fat man, oh, isn’t it a shame
What the river has done to this poor farmer’s land.”

Best I can tell, the rest of the album’s hit ‘n miss. Haven’t yet listened to the other track that’s garnering attention, the cover of Dylan’s You Got to Serve Somebody.
