Excerpts from 'My Life': Willie Nelson's Latest Autobiography

Willie Nelson has been around so long that he needs several autobiographies to tell his story. His newest tome, It's a Long Story: My Life, is available in bookstores and at amazon.com.

The book has been excerpted by Freedom Leaf in the May issue. Here are a few snippets from the excerpt:
