Waylon Wrote 'Em First                                  Jim Mohr

C                                             G
Waylon you're the best with all the songs you've sung
        G                                                              C
The words and music, they were mine, but I was just too young
        C                                                   C7                     F
And you're one step ahead of me in writing my next verse
  F                                        C                          G                             C
I Could've made a million off my songs, but Waylon wrote 'em first

          C                                                          G
When I read your "Last Letter", I wrote the same one to my wife
          G                                                                         C
Yea, "Me And Paul", we were having a ball, while you were living my life
        C                                                   C7                     F
And you're one step ahead of me in writing my next verse
  F                                        C                          G                             C
I Could've made a million off my songs, but Waylon wrote 'em first

Well I broke my favorite guitar when the letter was ready to go
       G                                                                           C
The song I'd wrote, I was licking the stamp, when I heard it on the radio
             C                                                   C7                     F
Seems you're one step ahead of me in writing my next verse
F                                        C                          G                             C
Could've made a million off my songs, but Waylon wrote 'em first

          C                                                            G
Well I hope you're not offended by this little song
 G                                                         C
I thought of it before you did but you will before too long
             C                                                   C7                     F
'Cause you're one step ahead of me in writing my next verse
F                                        C                          G                             C
Could've made a million off my songs, but Waylon wrote 'em first

           F                                        C                          G                             C
Yea, I should've made a million off my songs, but Waylon wrote 'em first
