Jennings, Waylon - You Don't Mess Around With Me Lyrics

I blew in from Texas
And you don't know who I am
Most of you could care less
And the rest don't give a damn
But you might take special notice
When you take a look at me
I'm everything you've ever been
And ever want to be

My game is the winner take all
I live on the edges
So i'm subject to a fall
I ain't never been a loser
I ain't never gonna be
I'm like runnin' in a ringer
You don't mess around with me

I've got money in my pocket
I've got money in the bank
If I look like a poor boy
I've got much more than you think
I got a woman on my right arm
Woman on my left
When it comes to women,Lord
I just can't help myself

I know it's not the right thing to do
But I could never change
Even if I wanted to
So if you are a lady
Anf if you always want to be
I'm a living lovin' legend
You don't mess around with me

She's got honey drippin' off her lips
So good you can taste
A walkin' aphrodisiac
Too damn good to waste
Prancin' like a thoroughbred
Out to win the race
It don't matter how good lookin'
Or how good she may be
There's just one foregone conclusion
You don't mess around with me

  45. gjmaztr7

    I love Waylon's music like a God, up until 1 yrs ago, i only knew his 'Two Good Ol'e Boys' Dukes song, and possibly 3 more, But He 'ripped' off 30% of ex-Eagles Don Henley's "Rustlers Blues" song for this 'You dont mess around with Me' song....Poetic License, i guess. Regardless, i am floored by Waylon's vast plethora of real old, old, and updated songs...amazing.

  46. Buck Shot

    Ladies and gentlemen.... THE Outlaw, R.I.P. Hoss.

  48. Papi K

    Hoss you are missed

  49. Marjorie Conner

    I have been around for a long time and he is best there ever was in my life time.  His voice is so great and having seen him in concert in his prime he was always in command, with his personality, voice, guitar pickin--he had it all.  There will never be another Waylon Jennings.

  50. Roger Swearengin

    Old Waylon my hero

  51. Barry Thacker

    Cocky Waylon

  52. Radian Phillips

    He'll ya

  53. Josiah Quincy

    The great Waylon Jennings.



  55. Roger Swearengin

    facebook here this

  56. Jonathan Sutton

    Waylon was and still is the man

  57. Walter Wray Jr.


  58. Matt Adams

    Amazing talent specially considering he had a thousand dollar a day drug habit

    Al Barth

    That's y his so good

  59. Kenshiro_199X

    Country is mostly garbage except for Wheeler Walker Jr and a couple others

  60. LaDon Hilley

    You can't help but like someone who told the "powers that be" to go fuck themselves and did things his own way.

  61. ChuckyT

    Great Waylon stuff... Sounds like MCA studio stuff. They f'd up so much of waymore's songs with that early 80's springy snare sound... too bad Nashville and Bakersfield couldn't have colluded

    Trucker Kev The Paid Tourist

    C Caples This was a shoot from hip see what works album and a unique one at that Tony Joe White is playing on this listen to Waylon's Up In Arkansas from this same album..This song was featured in early 90s movie Maverick. The interesting thing is WMB II had no record label..It was produced by Don Was and it was a one off album only. The big hit and CMT video favorite from here was The Wild Ones


    Thanks for the interesting info. I don't do a gig without doing 3 or 4 Waylon songs. One of my favorite albums is "Ol Waylon". again thanks

    Trucker Kev The Paid Tourist

    @C Caples Sure..😎😎

  62. Kristina Pascucci

    This song is made to be for my son XD


    The thing about country legends they have song titles that make you ask yourself "What's this song about"? Add some great guitar work and badass lyrics and you know the singer is an OUTLAW.

  64. warren washington

    118 people can kiss my ass !!!

  65. Maria Lindvall

    Så bra!

  66. S C

  75. briantravelman

    UGH! I'm trying to find this rock song with similar lyrics. It goes something like, "Be all mine, I'll take you time and time. Ya'll don't mess around, ya'll don't mess around, ya'll don't mess around with me."


    Love to find a man like that.
