Willie Nelson – Seven Year Itch Lyrics

[Chorus]
I had the seven-year itch, scratched it out in three
Well, you may say “how?” but you don’t know me
I’ve taken my licks and I’m paying my fee
I had the seven-year itch, scratched it out in three
[Verse 1]
Been ridin’ my mind ’round my neighborhood
Gettin’ ‘nowhere slow but I’m feeling good
Stayed up all night, that’s when I’m at my best
Sleep all day and that’s too much rest
[Chorus]
Had the seven-year itch, scratched it out in three
You may say “how?” but you don’t know me
I’ve taken my licks and I’m paying my fee
I had the seven-year itch, scratched it out in three
[Verse 2]
I went crazy one day but I came back when
I caught myself goin’ crazy again
I decided to write the world’s best song
But when I got around to it, it had done moved on
[Chorus]
Had the seven-year itch, scratched it out in three
Well, you may say “how?” but you don’t know me
I’ve taken my licks and I’m a-paying my fee
I had the seven-year itch, scratched it out in three
