Waylon Jennings - Waking Up With You Lyrics

Like a sail that's torn and can't ride the wind
Here I stand looking both ways again
I'm a dollar short on a three dollar night
Turning left cause I ain't got no right.
I keep thinking this time maybe it
But somehow all the pieces just won't fit
But I'll always have a dream to hold on to
Just as long as I keep waking up with you.
You told me once that storms never last
I know it's true oh so true
Just when I think the clouds will never pass
Like a silver lining you come shining through.
I know you'll always be there right or wrong
Together we'll keep on keeping on
And I'll always have a dream to hold on to
Just as long as I keep waking up with you.
You told me once that storms never last
I know it's true oh so true
Just when I think the clouds will never pass
Like a silver lining you come shining through.
I know you'll always be there right or wrong
Together we'll keep on keeping on
And I'll always have a dream to hold on to
Just as long as I keep waking up with you.
I'll always have a dream to hold on to
Just as long as I keep waking up with you...

  18. Page Ribe

    His voice got smooth again after he quit his 6 pack a day smoking habit (around 1988). Just contrast the way he sounds here to the way he sounded mid-eighties. Like someone else said, he could sing the phone book and I'd listen!

    Waylon was the best!!! No one will ever top his voice, song writing, spirit. Waylon was the man!!! He bucked the system, did things his way, was honest, loved God and his family. That's what we need for a President now. Wish Hoss was here today to straighten shit out!!!!

    Joyce Ball

    Waylon Jennings along time. Ago

  54. Adrian Miller

    Waylon was the fuckin shit and still is!

  55. Tommy Petersen

    People talking about hair is the kind of stuff that Waylon hated about new country, everything was about image and not content. Waylon was great, had nothing to do with his hair

    Ibraheem Naeem

    Tommy Petersen exactly

    9012105975 MOODY


    Kayte 0207

    Tommy Peterson, I completely agree!

  56. Rm M

    Here's to ol Waylon, Kris Kristof.... and Billy the Kid

  57. Tommy Petersen

    God he loved that woman! When he got clean he sang her praises to anyone and everyone. Waylon knew how lucky he was to have her, she clearly saved his life. What a great couple and a great man...my hero.

    Maxine Freeman

    I had an album when Waylon had short hair. I was a kid.

    charles coffell

    @Kayte 0207 WTF did LB say about Hoss

    Kayte 0207

    charles coffell, A couple of years ago, Luke Bryan was doing an interview and said something to the effect that he was not an outlaw country music singer who ran around and did cocaine. He went on to say that if people were interested in that kind of country music, then they should go out and buy Waylon and Willie. This comment precipitated an angry outburst against Bryant on social media by Waylon’s daughter-in-law, Kathy Pinkerman-Jennings. Kathy is the wife of Waylon’s son, Buddy (named after Buddy Holly) and is also the daughter of Waylon’s longtime bus driver. Luke Bryant later apologized to Waylon’s family for his remarks.

    Terry Olson

    @Magnal Fiacre He lived life his way,looked the way he wanted to look, damn them all! Does everyone have to conform to the way people want them to look? I've got long hair and I play country on my guitar. I'll be damned if I'll cut my hair or shave for anyone,you don't like it, though! Maybe you need a bath!


    Waylon and jessie was the greatest couple in history.... god bless them and may we meet in heaven someday so I may hear him sing of jessie and the lords praises

  58. American only

    My favorite song ever

  59. Brenda Chalkley

  63. mike kavanagh

    Excellent Singer.

  64. verimadmags vMM

    Isn't this of the best love songs ever? Without all the sloppy over sentimental clap-trap. I never found it, most likely never will, but I do admire the fact that some do find the other to love and hold for a long time, if not forever. But, we all do love Walon forever! Thanks ksufler for the post!

    john allison

    I found my true love and we had 54 wonderful years together before she went to Heaven to be with God and all the country singers there.I know she is listening to this with a big smile on her beautiful face. Rest in peace My Mary Ann.Till we meet again.I love you Darling.

  65. Dani Bowman

    Johnny was not a great singer at all. He was unique, I am a fan. But Waylon was in every way a better singer. No comparison.

  66. roberttudhope

    The Eagle 1990 Album.

  67. abbie0akley

    Oh! I LOVE this song!

  68. Billy Dean Ledford

    and a beautiful woman

  69. poodlemama9

    He is still the best. He sings with such feeling.

  70. greg berry

    nobody including the man in black i were better than ole hoss. I have rode a million miles with Waylon singing to me. wore out many 8 track and cassettes of him I'm a ramblin man.

  71. OneidaNativeGirl16

    She is lovely

  72. Richard Thweatt

    Google Biscuit Loves Brooke , The Hope , The faith That The UISa Is suppose to be Built on But Failure it seems That everything isn't for reason , God Knows Not What He is Doing My Human Flesh says Inside , Sometimes . Knowing Better I feel That In Life the Things That seem Impossible , Are Possible with Time , Hoping that We Have eternity To Learning a Faith That Will whip Your ass , For The reason of having To Hope In Siome God That made everything In Creation

  73. ksr9t

    God made just one Waylon Damn I miss him

  74. Donald Stark

    Waylon and Jessi. love it

  75. TheHeliumkid

    don't overlook this album...

  76. americaneon

    stop comparing people! each have a unique gift and talent, thank goodness they don't all sound and look the same... LIKE THE COPYCAT NO TALENT WE GET TODAY WITH CORPORATE MUSIC

  77. Cynthia DiMarco

    I can't believe you people would argue about best songwriter best singer best this or best that. Country has a lot of great singers and songwriters. Marty Robbins was great Hank Snow was great Tompall Glaser was great. All the ones you mentioned were great And there's some great female singers and songwriters Jean Shepherd. Jenny Lou Carson. a person could go on and on about all the greats....I love them all!

  78. Nazi6193

    Beautiful <3

  79. Linda Pendergrass

    what bout kk he wrote um!!

  80. 3waymore

    Greatest singer songwriter ever???Have you heard of a guy named Willie Nelson?That's a song writer! Kris Kristofferson?He wrote the book on writing songs.Greatest singer its Waylon Jennings and George Jones.Greatest ARTIST Waylon for sure Sang as good as anyone God has ever known and played a badass guitar.Johnny had that rhythm because he was a one trick pony!!!Jerry was nothing without Montana.Waylon and Johnny were what they are because they needed nor wanted anyone's help or approval!!!

  81. flatroofer


  82. jb92034

    Excellent ! Love the pic also ! Didnt recall hearing this b4 -it's now my fav !! THNX

  83. Colin Broad

    I miss him and I wonder if Jessi still does. Probably. God bless Waylon XX

  84. mawcaw555

    I would be willing to bet that if we could ask Waylon and Johnny today which one was best, they would immediately point to the other one. They were not in competition when they were alive, and they are not now.

  85. cu chi warror

    no one was better than waylon i also like john cash .

  86. June Farmer

    Johnny Cash couldn't carry a tune.......don't know why he was popular. His voice had no range at all. so there's no way he could come close to Waylon.

  87. Billy Bifta

    Jessi is a babe

  88. headredbone

    When someone asks me to compare country singers, talking about the legends, not todays wannabes. I think each have their own uniqueness, and that is what I like. I find good in each and everyone of them. I do not spend time deciding who is #1, 2, or whatever. I just enjoy listening to each of them.

  89. Opinionated Times

    You cant compare Johnny and Waylon.Nowadays on the net, people just like to argue.Comparing Johnny to Waylon is the mark of a listener new to country music.Because doing so is like comparing Joe Montana to Jerry Rice they are different parts of the same machine. They are the best at what they do. Waylon was cooler, especially his guitar skills. But Johnny, now there was quit possibly the greatest singer song writer there ever was.And don't forget that rhythm.Now see,you went and made me do it!

  90. Celeste Beaulieu


  91. Celeste Beaulieu

    I love Waylon too. Typed Waylong by mistake at first...laughing to myself.

  92. Georgia Jones

    Waylon Jennings, in my opinion, is/was the BEST 'country/western singer EVER! He could sing any genre of music if he so chose. Still love you Waylon.....

  93. sjaak de kievit
