Willie Nelson Moment of Forever?

Willie's new album has this song on it that I just love but it sounds terribly familiar to me. I think I have heard it before but can't for the life of me who sang it or if I am nuts...lol

I tired to find out but I came up with Linda Rondstat but I don't remember it being a female artist.

If I list the lyrics, can anyone remember who might have done this previously?

Willie Nelson – Keep Me From Blowing Away

Well I spent my whole lifetime,

In a world where the sunshine,

Finds excuses for not hanging around.

I squandered them oceans,

On the slightest of notions

And the first easy lovin’ I found.

But soon all the good times,

the gay times and some playtimes,

Like colors, run together and fade.

Oh lord if you hear me,

Touch me and hold me

And keep me from blowin’ away.

There are times when I tremble,

When my mind remembers,

the days that just crumble away.

With nothing to show

But these lines that I know,

Are beginning to show in my face

Oh lord if you’re listening,

I know I’m no Christian,

I ain’t got much coming to me.

So send down some sunshine

And throw out your lifeline

And keep me from blowing away.

Oh lord if you hear me,

Touch me and hold me,

Keep me from blowing away.

    KEEP ME FROM BLOWING AWAY

    Well I spent my whole lifetime

    In a world where the sunshine

    Finds excuses for not hangin' 'round

    I squandered emotions

    On the slightest of notions

    And the first easy loving I found

    But soon all the good times

    The gay times and play times

    Like colors run together and fade

    Oh Lord if you hear me

    Touch me and hold me

    And keep me from blowing away

    There's times when I trembled

    When my mind remembered

    The days that just crumbled away

    With nothing to show

    But these lines that I know

    Are beginning to show in my face

    Oh Lord if you're listening

    I know I'm no Christian

    And I ain't got much coming to me

    So send down some sunshine

    Throw out your lifeline

    And keep me from blowing away

    Oh Lord if you hear me

    Touch me and hold me

    And keep me from blowing away
