Shotgun Willie Lyrics


Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

Well you can't make a record if you ain't got nothing to say
You can't make a record if you ain't got nothing to say
You can't play music if you don't know nothing to play
Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

Now John T. Floores was working for the Ku Klux Klan
The six foot five John T. was a hell of a man
Made a lotta money selling sheets on the family plan
Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin' on a bullet and pullin' out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie's got all his family there

Shotgun Willie
  • The tale behind the title of Willie Nelson's Shotgun Willie album is an interesting one. The story goes that Nelson's daughter, Susie, told him that her sister Lana was being abused by her husband, Paul Warren. Nelson drove to Lana's house, where he fought with Warren, and threatened to kill him if he ever hit his daughter again. Soon after Nelson arrived home, Warren arrived in his truck with his brothers and they started to shoot at his house. Nelson and his drummer, Paul English, retaliated with their own rifles, causing the aggressors to surrender and earning Nelson the nickname of 'Shotgun Willie.'
  • Nelson wrote the lyrics for the song that would become the title track whilst sat on the toilet in the bathroom of the hotel that he was staying at whilst recording the album. He scribbled them on the empty packaging of a sanitary napkin.
