Jennings, Shooter - Walk Of Life Lyrics

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lua, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah, the boy can play
Dedication devotion
Turning all the night time into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny and he'll tell you the story
Hand me down mu walkin' shoes
Here come Johnny with the power and the glory
Backbeat the talkin' blues
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah, the boy can play
Dedication devotion
Turning all the night time into the day

He do the song about the sweet lovin' woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, he do the walk of life

Here comes Johnny singing oldies, goldies
Be-Bop-A-Lula, Baby What I Say
Here comes Johnny singing I Gotta Woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make it pay
He got the action, he got the motion
Yeah the boy can play
Decidation devotion
Turning all the night time into the day

And after all the violence and double talk
There's just a song in the trouble and the strife
You do the walk, you do the walk of life

Jennings, Shooter Walk Of Life Comments
  1. Toni House

    Shooter is his fathers son, but doesn’t get credits he should get. His dad would be proud. You go.

  2. Cyndi Jones

    You really sound like your dad in this one!
    AWESOME!!! I love me all of the Jennings ,
    Waylon,Jessie, Shooter, Struggle, Brianna, and all the rest.
    Wow 4 generations of GREATNESS!!!!!!

  3. William Marshall

    Who walks the walk of life these days? Not to many left, if you don't understand they should outlaw you

  4. matt lentell

    LOL... cool video...

  5. Dan Sumo

    Dire need for S. JENNINGS to play some more of this kinda twangy shit!!!

  6. Charles SWAG

    Hot damn.

  7. Rain on the Plains

    I love everything you do, Shooter. No question. You are amazing and I love you!

    Shooter Jennings bring the country music to rock and roll where it belongs.

  14. Joe Miller

    Very Well Done Guys....Thanks!!!

  15. Sean Whitman

    This is coming from a musician: this rendition of "walk of life" is a far, far cry from being anywhere near the level of Dire Straits' performance. Mark Knopfler would probably vomit!

  16. paul austin

    Hell yeah ...that was good!!!!!!

  17. frederic notte

    sans faire injure à Mark Knopfler, cette version est bien meilleure, déjà en ce qui concerne l'instrumentation

  18. caleshtcincredibles

    just a damn good version of this great song !

  19. Joris van Hees

    What a poor song, nothing to do with his great father, what a man Waylon was. RIP.

  20. Edward Burton

    Fire Straits? Noyce!!👍👍

  66. Castlevania Skeletor

    3:26 gee it’s not everyday that you get to see the widow of one of country music’s legends (and she’s a legend herself for female country) and the wife of the legends son. What store does this guy work at 😂

    Wow what a rip-off I think I've heard this tune before Shooters a jerk man I met the guy a long time ago wouldn't sign an autograph and I didn't want his f****** autograph it was for my friends he walked by with a bad attitude I said get back over here they came to see you and get your autograph but you are kind of f****** do that to your fans I said sign the f****** s*** they want you to sign they came to see you and then he did it in a manner which was so disrespectful you want to treat your fans like that you f****** f*****

  86. Will Jacobson

    Legit thought that the lady was a drag queen, and if she bent over, she would have a peen/bulge. Then I realized that this was before 2017.
