At Outlaw: Celebrating the Music of Waylon Jennings, Toby Keith and Willie Nelson joined the star studded line up to pay tribute the great Outlaw himself. Taking place in Austin, Texas at the Austin's Moody Theatre, the concert is meant to honor Waylon's classic music, with a line up including Kris Kristofferson, Lee Ann Womack, Alison Krauss and Eric Church

Willie and Toby sang the classic "Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys" which was released originally in 1975. The song did well, but took over the No. 1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart when Waylon and Willie made a duet version in 1978. Now almost 40 years later Willie sings it again in a great version with Toby. 

Check out the video below. 

LYRICS BELOW

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
Don't let 'em pick guitars and drive them old trucks
Make 'em be doctors and lawyers and such

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
They'll never stay home and they're always alone
Even with someone they love

Cowboys ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold
And they'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold
Lonestar belt buckles and old faded Levis

And each night begins a new day
And if you don't understand him and he don't die young
He'll probably just ride away

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
Don't let 'em pick guitars and drive them old trucks
Make 'em be doctors and lawyers and such

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
They'll never stay home and they're always alone
Even with someone they love

Cowboys like smoky old pool rooms, clear mountain mornings
Little warm puppies and children, girls of the night
And them that don't know him won't like him and them that do

Sometimes won't know how to take him
He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him
Do things to make you think he's right

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
Don't let 'em pick guitars and drive them old trucks
Make 'em be doctors and lawyers and such

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
They'll never stay home and they're always alone
Even with someone they love

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
Don't let 'em pick guitars and drive them old trucks
Make 'em be doctors and lawyers and such

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys
