about

"Texas"

lyrics

Before she boards that plane the wood grain
Of this old guitar has been tear-stained

As she goes overseas will she think about you or me?
Are there too many clouds beyond those wings?

Are we both home or is she yours alone?
When she comes back, is it to us both?

Oh Texas
How could we be so reckless with a love like that?
We should have known
Oh Texas
Gotta help me bring her back
bring her on back home

An old oak tree, my roots are planted deep
But I’m just as lost as those pines in the east

Like the fields in the west, my heart is desolate
Lonesome for miles, ain’t no one left

Are we both home or is she yours alone?
When she comes back, is it to us both?

Oh Texas
How could we be so reckless with a love like that?
We should have known
Oh Texas
Gotta help me bring her back
Bring her on back home

If I was the one to blame I would wrap my heart in cellophane. Send it on an aeroplane to you
Don’t know what your leaving means but it pulls so hard on these damn heart strings
Can you hear the hills and I sing for you?

Oh Texas
How could we be so reckless with a love like that?
We should have known
Oh Texas
Gotta help me bring her back
Bring her on back home
