What Goes Around Comes Around is an album by Waylon Jennings, released on RCA Victor in 1979. Released when the outlaw country movement was already visibly past its prime, it was Jennings' first studio album to feature his distinctive logo on the cover, surrounded by neon and stars; I've Always Been Crazy, released the year before, had the logo on the back cover. " I Ain't Living Long Like This", a song originally written by Rodney Crowell, and the tender ballad " Come With Me", both were hits, reaching the top of the country charts. The album itself stayed at number two on the country album charts for fourteen weeks, though his previous eight major albums hit number one; the release was restricted from the top position by Kenny Rogers' influential solo album Kenny. Jennings would go on to have two more #1 albums after What Goes Around Comes Around1980's Music Man and 1986's Will the Wolf Survive – but the modest success of What Goes Around Comes Around was a sign which suggested that the outlaw movement was in fact on the wane. The (album) has been certified Gold.
