(CBSNews.com) – Willie Nelson has been “On the Road Again” — and again and again — ever since he released that song back in 1980. And a song on his newest album proves he has no intention of hanging it up anytime soon, a point he underscores to our Bob Schieffer, For The Record (An earlier version of this story was originally broadcast on April 2, 2017):
“I woke up still not dead again today
The Internet said I had passed away
If I died I wasn’t dead to stay
I woke up still not dead again today.
“Now, how in the world do you come up with that song?” Schieffer asked.
“Oh, I don’t know — I’ve been killed several times throughout the years!” Nelson laughed. “And so I just thought I’d write something funny about it.”
It’s easy for Willie Nelson to laugh off these greatly exaggerated rumors of his demise. Now 84, he’s on the road again — performing and writing music. His last album, “God’s Problem Child,” was his 110th, give or take, with songs like “Still Not Dead” and “Old Timer.”
