In Verse: Or, Somebody Put On Some Archie Bell And The Drells So We Can All Tighten Up

Sing me one more song about them dusty plains / Them honky-tonk angels and their lonely beehive painI've made my bed, so here I'll lie / I'm rollin' West Texas teardrops in my eyes There's a seat for you at the rodeo, and I've got every slow dance saved / Besides the Mexican food sucks north of here anyway It's written all over the face of the daughter of the mayor of Marble Falls / When she winds up in Denton town, doing the Valium waltz There only two things in life that make it worth livin' / That's guitars that tune good and firm-feelin' women Alison in Galveston somehow lost her sanity / And Dimples who now lives in Temple's got the law lookin' for me She lived in Berkeley till the earthquake shook her loose / She lives in Texas now, where nothing ever moves Nighttime would find me in Rosa's cantina / Music would play and Felina would whirl Well there's floodin' down in Texas, all the telephone lines are down / And I've been tryin' to call my baby, Lord, and I can't get a single sound I sure do love them red-haired girls / I'm just like all the boys from Texas A Lone Star State of Mind
