​He Won't Ever Be Gone

This song is by Willie Nelson and appears on the album God's Problem Child (2017).

Original video
Got the news this morning
And it would be a tough day
Someone's so much larger than life
I can't believe he could pass away
When it comes to country music he's the world
And it wouldn't be all it is without his word

And he won't ever be gone
His songs live on
A fugitive and a branded man
Mama tried to understand
Left us a lifetime of songs
And he won't ever be gone

We were friends right from the start
And we shared some high times
I would sing some songs he wrote
And he would sing a few of my own
Music made us brothers 'til the end
Not a day goes by that I don't miss him

And he won't ever be gone
His songs live on
"Ramblin' Fever" and "The Way I Am"
Blue collar blues for the working man
We'll be singin' it back home from now on
And he won't ever be gone

And he won't ever be gone
His songs live on
A fugitive and a branded man
Mama tried to understand
Left us a lifetime of songs
And he won't ever be gone
We'll be singin' it back home from now on
And he won't ever be gone
