YMMV / Waylon Jennings

  • Covered Up: His Willie Nelson duet "Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" was first released by Ed Bruce. Similarly, their "Good Hearted Woman" was originally a Top Ten single for Jennings solo, but the duet version was a #1.
    • "I'm a Ramblin' Man", originally written and recorded by Ray Pennington (who produced Waylon's version).
    • "Clyde", originally a J.J. Cale album track.
    • Also on the receiving end: he recorded "Where Corn Don't Grow" in 1990 but it only got to #67 on the country chart. 6 years later it became a Top 10 hit for Travis Tritt.
  • Epic Riff: "I'm a Ramblin' Man" and "Rainy Day Woman" are rare classic country examples of this; "Rainy Day Woman"'s riff is played on a steel guitar.
