[INTRO]

[VERSE 1] 
            D                          G    A                D
Well I'm a kid with a guitar trying to play Nuages when they ask. 
G               A#         D
Where does your style come from? 
D                            G            D
I know what you mean, 'cause I learned to sing
G                 A            D
Listening to Blue Yodel number 1. 
   Bm                       F#m                            G
We love Hank and Lefty, Bob Wills, Ernest Tubbs and Johnny Cash,
       Em                                                 A
but if we had to pinpoint the start of who we are we'd go back. 

[CHORUS]
   G          D       A         D
To Django and Jimmie, Paris and Mississippi. 
  G             D           A
A young singing brakeman, a jazz playing gypsy. 
      G              D      F#         G
There might not have been a Merle or a Willie,
   Em      A          D     
if not for Django and Jimmie.

[VERSE 2]
            D             G      A                   D
Through the 20's and 30's Jimmie sang his way to the top, 
G                A#     D
despite of those old TB blues. 
D                  G              D
Django was a star, he burned up a guitar 
G                   A         D
with just two good fingers to use. 
          Bm                F#m                  G
You can't turn back time or put more sand in the glass,
    Em                                         A
but sometimes at night, I close my eyes and go back...

[CHORUS]
   G          D       A         D
To Django and Jimmie, Paris and Mississippi. 
  G             D           A
A young singing brakeman, a jazz playing gypsy. 
      G              D      F#         G
There might not have been a Merle or a Willie,
   Em      A          D     
if not for Django and Jimmie. 

      G              D      F#         G
There might not have been a Merle or a Willie,
   Em      A          D     
if not for Django and Jimmie.

About the artist behind Django Jimmie Chords:

Willie Nelson (born April 30, 1933) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is widely regarded as one of the most beloved and notorious country music singers. He reached his greatest fame during the so-called "outlaw country" movement of the 1970s, but remains iconic, especially in American popular culture. In recent years he has continued to tour, record, and perform, and this, combined with activities in advocacy of cannabis, as well as a well-publicized 2006 arrest for cannabis possession, have made him the subject of renewed media attention.
