Willie Nelson - God's Problem Child Lyrics

I did the best I could do
But the best I could tell
The higher I flew
The farther I fell

Born in the mud
Raised in the wild
Washed in the blood
God's problem child

I feel the shine
Following me
Not far behind
That's where I wanna be
A little out of time
Fine by me

Darkness may fall
We still got a light
Keeping us all
Safe through the night
Heaven must love
God's problem child
Heaven must love
God's problem child
Heaven must love
God's problem child

    Saw Leon years ago with only about 75 people in the room. Felt like it was your living room. Met Willie in 1978 and he was very gracious especially when he found out we had snuck backstage. When his security busted us he let us stay because we were GI's. Willie laughed his ass off that two 20 year old's got past his security (bikers in those days). They even fed us and gave us a beer. Willie is one I'm going to take hard the day he passes. I've always said Willie brings out the best in people somehow no matter who you are or what genre of music you prefer. That's a rare talent in an artist.

  21. Stephen Eckroth

    I say this from my heart and soul. The day that Willie Nelson stops, will truly be the day that music will die. My mom and dad first heard Willie way back when no one knew who he was and said he was going to make history in the world of music. I can't imagine my day without listening to Willie Nelson. I've been playing drums and toured the world over for over 50 years. My one wish has always been to play with Willie. His songs inspire the values that every human should strive to have.

    Journey Calder

  31. jod6cindy

    One of the very few country songs I have heard in the last 15 years that I like. Of course, it's more blues than country (and NOTHING like today's "country music"), so that's probably why I like it (along with the extended instrumental passage, which I love in ANY song).


    jod6cindy if you want to hear blues or rather jazz inspired country music look up a song titled "Night Life" by Ray Price. it was the first Willie Nelson written song to chart.

    Aaron Hotchner

    jod6cindy Fuck Luke Bryan...
