The Words Don't Fit the Picture is a 1972 album by country singer Willie Nelson. It was drawn from his final sessions for RCA in Nashville before restarting his life and career in Texas. The album cover portends the impending stylistic change - flanked by his wife, Connie and his producer Felton Jarvis, dressed as a chauffeur, Nelson poses in front of a Rolls-Royce in full-freak cowboy regalia, battered guitar case in tow.
