Willie Nelson - Still Not Dead Lyrics




I woke up still not dead again today
The internet said I had passed away
If I died I wasn't dead to stay
And I woke up still not dead again today

Well, I woke up still not dead again today
The gardener did not find me that a way
You can't believe a word that people say
And I woke up still not dead again today

I run up and down the road making music as I go
They say my pace would kill a normal man
But I've never been accused of being normal anyway
And I woke up still not dead again today

I woke up still not dead again today
The news said I was gone to my dismay
Don't bury me, I've got a show to play
And I woke up still not dead again today

I run up and down the road making music as I go
They say my pace would kill a normal man
But I've never been accused of being normal anyway
And I woke up still not dead again today

Last night I had a dream that I died twice yesterday
But I woke up still not dead again today

Willie Nelson Still Not Dead Comments
  1. Rumple Stiltskin

    Me Too..even at 75.I'm also still alive..hang in there Willie

  2. Granny M.

    Enjoyed the Video very much. You are great, Willie!

  3. Upper Left Coast Chelsea Fan

    I want to jam with Willie when I'm 100. Willie's my mom's age and she ain't never gonna die so I got total faith I will jam with him when I'm 100 (maybe smoke a little weed too).

  4. jan langen

    Der pullover ist der geilste!

  5. Cindy Brunken

    My husband sang this everyday while he could! The last six weeks of his life he could only whisper after they pulled the ng tube out. He entertained his cancer nurses with this song!

  6. Gary Dixon

    I thought Willie was losing it when he endorsed Beto O'Rourke? I guess I was wrong? Willie, if Beto O'Rourke would have beat Cruz, he would be sending his boys out to gather up that business you've got hanging over the head of your bed.

  7. Nikolay Karaivanov

    Willie, just deliberate go ahead, slow and fast and clever as always , never 'but' . Your soul and your lovely heart to give us more such happy emotions ! brgds and best, smile and healthy new 2020+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  8. Gary Dixon

    Everytime I think the time has come for Willie to give his singing up, he comes up with something so good I have a hard believing it? This song "I woke up still not dead again today," tells me that his old brain is still hitting on all 8 cylinders. I hope you don't never die Willie.

  9. OakandSky Gaming

    Playing Poker with WILLIE FUCKING NELSON 🤩 that’s the dream!!!!

  10. beauty sfx

  13. Uncle Putin

    I woke up still not dead again today
    The internet said I had passed away
    But if I die and I wasn't dead to stay
    And I woke up still not dead again today
    Well, I woke up still not dead again today
    The gardener did not find me that way
    You can't believe a word that people say
    And I woke up still not dead again today
    I run up and down the road and makin' music as I go
    They say my pace would kill a normal man
    But I've never been accused of bein' normal anyway
    And I woke up still not dead again today
    I woke up still not dead again today
    The news said I was gone to my dismay
    Don't bury me, I've got a show to play
    And I woke up still not dead again today
    I run up and down the road and makin' music as I go
    They say my pace would kill a normal man
    But I've never been accused of bein' normal anyway
    And I woke up still not dead again today
    Last night I had a dream that I died twice yesterday
    And I woke up still not dead again today

  23. Uncle Funkle

    Willie's music is not only fun and inspiring it makes life just plain
    Swell😉

  24. KATHY W

    hes now 86 ... hes still didnt wake up dead !!

  25. Enki-Bileh Bindefeld Askar Waberi

    Here are the lyrics
    Correct me If there were mistakes, but as a (not that good in english) foreigner and doing by ear I can't be more exact.


    I woke up still not dead again a day
    The internet says that I have passed away
    But if I died I wouldn't dare to stay
    And I woke up still not dead again a day

    Well I woke up still not dead again a day
    The gardener did not find me that way
    You can't believe a word of what people say
    And I woke up still not dead again a day

    I was walking down the road
    Making music as I go
    They say my path would kill a normal man
    But I've never been accused of being normal anyway
    And I woke still not dead again a day

    I woke up still not dead again today
    The news says that I was goin' to my dismay
    Don't bury me I've got a show to play
    I woke up still not dead again a day

    I was walking down the road
    Making music as I go
    They say my path would kill a normal man
    But I've never been accused of being normal anyway
    And I woke still not dead again a day
    Last night I had a dream that I have died twice yesterday
    And I woke up still not dead again today

    Phillip Holt

    You are so right!!! His vocals sound the same as a when he first started.

  51. mosrite60

    LOl. Wow great hilarious song. Love it to pieces. Only the immortal Willie can sing a song as this and pull it off so gracefully. Willie can really lay down a heavy guitar break as here. That old acoustic guitar does wonders. Love it.
