Waylon Jennings - Do It Again Lyrics

In the morning you go gunning
For the man who stole your water
And you fire till he's done in
But they catch you on the border
And the mourners are all singing
As they drag you by your feet
But the Hangman isn't hanging
And they put you on the street

You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheels turning 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

Well, you know she's no high climber
Then you find your only friend
In a room with your two timer
And you're sure you're near the end
Then you love a little wild one
And she brings you only sorrow
All the time you know she's smilin'
You'll be on your knees tomorrow

You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheels turning 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

Now you'll swear and kick and beg us
That you're not a gamblin' man
Then you find you're back in Vegas
With a handle in your hand
Your black cards can bring you money
So you hide them when you're able
In the land of milk and honey
You must put them on the table

You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheels turning 'round and 'round
You go back, Jack, do it again

    Tex 52

    10 xs better than that slow drap pot song, snort 2 lines walk up to microphone and sound like a MAN THE MAN of country music and Jerry Reed playing guitar w/ him cool man just cool

  8. RedDirtRules

    love Waylon dearly but this didn't quite work out

    John Peterson

    Agreed, but I give him kudos for trying.

    Donny Short

    I wish everyone was as respectful as you are when they disagree with something. I do agree with you. This one missed it.


    I don’t know why Waylon chooses to do this song faster than Steely Dan.

  9. Thomascow Mc Mullan

  10. Joe Eck

    I am a huge Waylon fan did not know about this I have found many covers on the tube lately turn the page , gold dust woman , and do it again.. did he do a album of covers that I don't know about if so I would love to find it


    No album of only covers that I know of, but he did do lots of covers on many of his albums.

    Seth Fortune

    It's because he wrote these songs. The other versions you hear are covers of this..

  12. pecvillian

    You are correct. I must have been looking at the wrong cover when I made this one.

  13. ♥Eden 宇山♥

    Thanks ! I was born to love Waylon. :)

    Dixie Lee Hendricks

    So was I but I didn't know about Waylon till on the 80s. Been hooked ever since. I am 75 and love WAYLON JENNINGS

    On this day in 1973 {January 27th} Steely Dan performed "Do It Again" on the late Dick Clark's 'American Bandstand'...
    Two months earlier on November 18th, 1972 it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; eventually it peaked at #6 and spent 17 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #39 in the U.K. and #60 in Australia...
    In 1980 Waylon Jennings covered it; his faster version was a track on his LP "Music Man" {its available on You Tube}...
    R.I.P. Mr. Jennings {1937 - 2002} and Mr. Clark {1929 - 2012}

    Big Steely Dan fan -- just heard about this version and had to come to YT to check it out. I miss the breezy, jazzy swing of the original, but this is still a pretty interesting take. Waylon was a great performer -- a country artist with a rocker's heart, a lot like Johnny Cash. Nicely done.

  16. theWoodrow321

    this is from his vinyl album music man, great cover...my opinon, way better than steely dan.

  17. Ken Klocke

    Everything Waylon touches turns to gold!

    Daniel J. Scotti

    ahha, this one was gold before he touched it but i agree
