Willie Nelson, Countryman – An Island Vibe Must

I’ll be the first one to tell you I’m not a huge Willie Nelson fan.  But if you’re a believer of kicking back, closing your eyes and escaping to somewhere south, then the Willie Nelson Countryman album needs to be on your radar.

I was introduced to this album awhile back by a buddy who started playing it while we were sitting under the tiki bar and I instantly fell in love.  It’s even more laid back then Buffett and Chesney if you can believe that.  Maybe that has something to do with Willie’s love of the ganja, who knows.

My favorite song on the album is “Sitting Here in Limbo”.  It’s just too cool.  I couldn’t find a video for that song but here is a great video for “The Harder They Come” which looks like it was filmed in Jamaica. Jammin to it Mon!

Lyrics for “The Harder They Come”

Well they tell me
Of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day
You’re born and when you die
They never seem
To hear even your cry

So as sure
As the sun will shine
I’m gonna get my share
Now of what’s mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they’ll fall
One and all
Ooh the harder they come
The harder they’ll fall
One and all

Well the oppressors
Are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
And they think
That they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord
They know not what they’ve done

‘Cause as sure
As the sun will shine
I’m gonna get my share
Now of what’s mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they’ll fall
One and all
Ooh the harder they come
The harder they’ll fall
One and all

And I keep on fighting
For the things I want
Though I know
That when you’re dead you can’t
But I’d rather
Be a free man in my grave
Than living
As a puppet or a slave

So as sure
As the sun will shine
I’m gonna get my share
Now of what’s mine
And then the harder they come
The harder they’ll fall
One and all
Ooh the harder they come
The harder they’ll fall
One and all

I hope you like it as much as I do.
