SONGS GET HARDER TO WRITE AS SINGER’S YEARS GO BY

SHARE SONGS GET HARDER TO WRITE AS SINGER’S YEARS GO BY

As the years go by for Willie Nelson, the songs get harder to write.

Nelson, 62, still composes one or two songs a year, but he told Parade magazine, "It gets tougher as you get older, because you know more and expect more of yourself."Nelson has written such hits as "Crazy" and "Hello Walls." He plans to tour Europe soon with the group The Highwaymen, which also includes Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash.

He cleared up his much-publicized tax problems last year, after 14 years of paying debts, and is reading a couple of scripts that could lead to movie appearances, he said in the magazine's Aug. 20 issue.
