Publisher Description

The definitive autobiography of Willie Nelson.

"Unvarnished. Funny. Leaving no stone unturned." . . . So say the publishers about this book I've written. What I say is that this is the story of my life, told as clear as a Texas sky and in the same rhythm that I lived it.

It's a story of restlessness and the purity of the moment and living right. Of my childhood in Abbott, Texas, to the Pacific Northwest, from Nashville to Hawaii and all the way back again. Of selling vacuum cleaners and encyclopedias while hosting radio shows and writing song after song, hoping to strike gold.

It's a story of true love, wild times, best friends, and barrooms, with a musical sound track ripping right through it. My life gets lived on the road, at home, and on the road again, tried and true, and I've written it all down from my heart to yours.

Signed, Willie Nelson.

It's a Long Story

Good read and well done. It is a story about Willie. He says he is a man of faith and family.
I had no idea he wrote so many songs and he is not done yet.

It’s a Long Story

This is a fascinating and well-written book. Willie Nelson led a wonderful life and I love his singing! He was so talented and had so many friends! I’ll be 81 in July so I come from his generation and can relate to a lot of things he talked about and experienced.
