C&L's Late Night Music Club With Waylon Jennings

Carl Belew and W.S. Stevenson wrote this song about just being downright sick of the world and needing to escape. Many people-including Patsy Cline and Dwight Yoakam- have recorded it, but Waylon's treatment is my favorite. This version was released on the album Folk Country in 1966 and was one of the first chapters of the tenuous creative partnership between the outlaw and the countrypolitan Chet Atkins. Yee-Haw!
