(Video link here.) The great Waylon Jennings singing “I’ve Always Been Crazy.”

I’ve always been different with one foot over the line 
Winding up somewhere one step ahead or behind
It ain’t been so easy but I guess I shouldn’t complain
I’ve always been crazy but it’s kept me from going insane

His words describe just about every great, creative person we know…“different, with one foot over the line”.

We especially love his intro.
