Luckenbach Texas Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

For this Luckenbach Texas chords page allow me to give you some background first.

Waylon Jennings released this song back in the spring of 1977. The song reached #1 on the country charts by the summer of that year. Waylon admitted he knew the song was a hit when it was first pitched to him, but he later admitted he never really liked the song.

Here are the chords you'll need for this one:

  • G
  • C
  • D
  • D7
  • Am

So the strumming in the beginning is mainly just down strokes across the chords as you progress thru the verse. When you hit the chorus, just play root up down up bass up down up and repeat. There is a riff as you'll notice in the chorus so you have that walk and chew gum at the same time.

But as always, just strum and sing all the way through first.

There is no picking break in this song, but I invented one and it's just a melody play which you can downstroke or shuffle strum it a bit.


Luckenbach Texas Lyrics


The only two things in life that make it worth living
Is guitar's tuned good and firm feeling women
I don't need my name in the marquis lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it's time we got back - to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas - with Willie and Waylon and the boys
This successful life we're living's got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between the Hank Williams' pain songs and Newbury's train songs
And "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas - there ain't nobody feelin' no pain

So baby, let's sell your diamond rings and buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me - in your high society you cry all night
We've been so busy keepin' up with the Jones - a four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas - with Willie and Waylon and the boys
This successful life we're living's got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between the Hank Williams' pain songs and Newbury's train songs
And "Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas - there ain't nobody feelin' no pain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas, there ain't nobody feelin' no pain

Thanks for stopping by this Luckenbach Texas chords page and I hope you found the info here somewhat helpful and useful.
