Waylon Jennings - I've Always Been Crazy (LIVE, 1984) (WATCH)

Waylon jennings Songs | Waylon Jennings - I've Always Been Crazy (LIVE, 1984) (WATCH) | Country Music Videos

Waylon Jennings has always been crazy. But he's always been crazy good, too. 

The singer, songwriter, and actor was characterized by his recognizable voice, which was rough and powerful. There was an edge to his phrasing and texture that made his songs gritty. Paired with that, his "spanky-twang" picking, shaggy beard, and black leather, made him forever iconic.

In the 1970's Waylon became a member of the Outlaw movement, as well as released several critically albums. Most well-known were Lonesome, On'ry and Mean, and Honky Tonk Heroes. Unfortunately the artist developed a tragic drug addiction. 

Pills were the artificial energy on which Nashville ran around the clock.”

His habits got so extreme he contracted hepatitis, diabetes, and by the 1980's claimed to spend $1500 on cocaine. Fortunately he quit permanently in 1984.

On February 13, 2002, Waylon died in his sleep from diabetic complications. He rests in Mesa, AZ.


I've always been crazy and the trouble that it's put me through
I've been busted for things that I did, and I didn't do
I can't say I'm proud of all of the things that I've done
But I can say I've never intentionally hurt anyone

I've always been different with one foot over the line
Winding up somewhere one step ahead or behind
It ain't been so easy but I guess I shouldn't complain
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane

Beautiful lady are you sure that you understand
The chances your taking loving a free living man
Are you really sure you really want what you see
Be careful of something that's just what you want it to be

I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane
Nobody knows if it's something to bless or to blame
So far I ain't found a rhyme or a reason to change
I've always been crazy but it's kept me from going insane
