I'd Have To Be Crazy (live)

Description
My take on the Willie Nelson song, another favorite of mine, performed at the Californian Convalescent Hospital. The H2 recorder was placed a little closer to the guitar than it should, but the vocal still comes through well enough to put this one up at MJ as part of the Jamming With Jack series. Hope you enjoy...

Lyrics
I'd have to be crazy
To stop all my singing
And never play music again

You'd call me a fool
If I grabbed up a top hat
And ran out to flag down the wind

I'd have to be weird
To grow me a beard
Just to see what the rednecks would do

But I'd have to be crazy
Plum out of my mind
To fall out of love with you

Now I know I've done weird things
I told people I heard things
When silence was all that abounds

Been days when it pleased me
To be on my knees
Following ants, as they crawled across the ground

I've been insane on a train
But I'm still me again
The place where I hold you is true

So I know I'm alright
'Cause I'd have to be crazy
To fall out of love with you

Now I don't intend to
But should there come a day
When I say that I don't love you
You can lock me away

I sure would be dingy
To live in an envelope
Waiting alone for a stamp

You'd swear I was loco
To rub for a genie
While burning my hand on the lamp

And I may not be normal
But nobody is
So I'd like to say 'fore I'm through

I'd have to be crazy
Plumb out of my mind
To fall out of love with you

I'd have to be crazy
Plumb out of my mind
To fall out of love with you

That coffee house sound
I wasn't familiar with this one so it's nice to be introduced through your rendition. I'd say these folks are getting spoiled with your entertaining performances!

I like coffee...
and if these old folks are getting spoiled, then they deserve it. And I'm glad to play a small part in their momentary enjoyment... Thanks Doug!

Didn't know this one, Jack, but I guessed it was probably a song Willie might have done :-) Thanks for sharing your good work with us. Take care.

Hi Peter, glad to have intro'd this one to you. An old Willie Nelson favorite, indeed. Thanks for stopping in to see what us crazies are doing!

Thanks
for introducing this to many here Jack.
Sounds good to hear your live performance at the hospital.
From the sounds of your crowd they appreciated it and so do I.
Cheers,
Charlie

Introducing...
Charlie, as you know, Willie Nelson doesn't rank all that high among MJers. That's a shame. Great songwriter/singer. And thanks for your nice comments. The old folk fans seemed to enjoy this, glad you did also...
