A Horse Called Music is a 1989 album by country singer Willie Nelson. The album includes Nelson’s last number 1 single, “Nothing I Can Do About It Now”, and the single “There You Are”.

When Willie Nelson, driving a beat-up green 1941 Buick with five overdue payments,
first rolled into Nashville from Houston in the spring of 1960, his steely determination
to make it as a singer and songwriter was quickly put to the test:

“The Buick took me as far as downtown Nashville
and then belched smoke and kind of sighed like an
old horse and laid down and died. But I was in Nashville at last,
ready to shoot it out with the big boys.”

A Horse Called Music

I’ve got a long list of real good reasons, for all the things I’ve done
I’ve got a picture in the back of my mind, of what I’ve lost and what I’ve won
I’ve survived every situation, knowin’ when to freeze and when to run
And regret is just a memory, written on my brow and there’s nothin’ I can do about it now
I’ve got a wild and a restless spirit, I kept my price through every deal
I’ve seen the fire of a woman scorned, turn her heart of gold to steel
I’ve got the song of the voice inside me, set to the rhythm of the wheel
And I’ve been dreamin’ like a child, since the cradle broke the bow
And there’s nothin’ I can do about it now

Runnin’ through the changes, goin’ through the stages, comin’ ‘round the corners in my life
Leavin’ doubt to fate, stayin’ out too late, waitin’ for the moon to say goodnight
And I could cry for the time I’ve wasted, but that’s a waste of time and tears
And I know just what I’d change, if I went back in time somehow
But there’s nothin’ I can do about it now
Runnin’ through the changes, goin’ through the stages, comin’ ‘round the corners in my life
Leavin’ doubt to fate, stayin’ out too late, waitin’ for the moon to say goodnight
And I could cry for the time I’ve wasted, but that’s a waste of time and tears
And I know just what I’d change, if I went back in time somehow
But there’s nothin’ I can do about it now
forgivin’ everything, that forgiveness will allow
And there’s nothin’ I can do about it
