Texas 1987

We could stay out until the sun comes rolling past our feet
Head over to Sugarland to fill our cups of tea
The mothers are waiting very patient for their daily news

You could go out this time with me
We could stay out and climb a tree
Miles and miles of land to see

*Shouldve been born
In Texas
With a cactus in my crib
Should've been born
In Texas
Much closer to Madrid
Should've been born
In Texas
Back then

Easy come easy go I know its in my soul
City born country raised blood money
I just can't relate its not the same its luxury

You could go out this time with me
We could stay out and climb a tree
Miles and miles of land to see

*Shouldve been born
In Texas
With a cactus in my crib
Should've been born
In Texas
Much closer to Madrid
Should've been born
In Texas
Back then

*Shouldve been born
In Texas
With a cactus in my crib
Should've been born
In Texas
Much closer to Madrid
Should've been born
In Texas
With a cactus in my crib
Should've been born
In Texas
Much closer to Madrid

(Should've been born in Texas)
Easy come easy go I know its in my heart and soul
City born country raised
(Should've been born in Texas)
Easy come easy go I know its in my heart and soul
City born country raised

Should've been born
In Texas
Back then

Well I don't go out that much anymore
When I'm not with you
I find theres so much life out there
That I don't know what to do no more

Wheeeeeeen I wake up at a quarter past dawn
Im still thinking bout you
Wash up run a comb through my hair
Right before I leave I swear
Ive got one thing left to say
While we sit in this room all day
When you're still up
We'll be comin down

I'd risk my life for you girl
Any day of the week
Just bring that sweet sweet lovin
Kick my aching head to the street
Ive got no woman only friends in my head
Ive got my 4 six-shooters
I leave em all dead
Gotta come back to bury my kin
Come back just to see the mess I left them in

*Comin up while you're still down
Comin up while you're still down
Track Name: Be My Girl
Be My Girl


Be my girl
Be my girl
I'll tell the whole world
Im high and I'm feelin fine
In New York with a bottle of wine

Be my girl
Be my girl
I'll tell the whole world
Im high and I'm feeling fine
In New York with the best girl of mine

Oh no
I know that you've got to go

*I'll be kissin
I'll be missin
All the joy that you'll be bringin oh yeah
I'll be kissin
I'll be missin
All the joy that you'll be bringin oh yeah
I know we've got to go

And I know
I know that you've got to go

All the joy that you'll be bringin oh yeah
I'll be kissin
I'll be missin
All the joy that you'll be bringin oh yeah
I know we've got to go

Don't need anyone to find her (Don't let me go)
Don't need anyone to find her (Im on my own)
Don't need anyone to find her (Don't let me go)
Track Name: Come Here
Come Here

Take some time to work things out
I never know exactly how you feel
Surrounded by the things you take
Just make some sense and it might reappear

*And oh
Come here
And oh
Come here
And oh
Come here

You write it down on paper
Just to see if life's depictions are whats real
The truest of the wise men thought
They'd never make it back to seal the deal

*And oh
Come here
And oh
Come here
And oh
Come here

*And oh
Come here
And oh
Come here
And oh
Come here
Track Name: Red Son
Red Son

A ramblin man once said to me
Boy you aint nothin if you aint free
Gotta spend some time alone
Then you'll know
Said right on

Seasons change don't ask me why
Its been a rough time on my wife
Caring for the ones who went away
My Red Son

Miss my family miss my life
Been drinkin whiskey all the time
Thinkin bout the day we sold our souls regrettably

Roamin down this countryside alone
But free

Missin my Red Son
Missin my Red Son
Missin my Red Son

A ramblin man once said to me
Boy you aint nothing if you aint free
How many harvests will they need
Before they realize
Its how you plant the seeds
Track Name: Golden
Golden

*When you go back through the snow
You know we know
You know we know

*When you go back through the snow
You know we know
You know we know

Dutchmans Pipe is blooming
Nothing seems the same
Seen you many times now
But I still don't know your name

*When you go back through the snow
You know we know
You know we know

*When you go back through the snow
You know we know
You know we know

Although you've got all this
You've got all this
Its not enough

Although you've got all this
You've got all this
Its not enough

*When you go back through the snow (Although you've got all this)
You know we know (You've got all this)
You know we know (Its not enough)

*When you go back through the snow (Although you've got all this)
You know we know (You've got all this)
You know we know (Its not enough)

She walks the river banks
Carrying all the buckets that we need
The waters warm
And all the townspeople just care about their greed

*Sorry girl
Sorry girl
Sleep will come to us before we dream
Sorry girl
Sorry girl
I don't know if you know just what I mean

And the wait
Will never bring you down
Theres no way
Were gunna get around town

Supplies are short
And theres no telling if were going to get by
We hope and dream
Just as the cold wind breaks
And drifts into the sky

*Sorry girl
Sorry girl
Sleep will come to us before we see
Sorry girl
Sorry girl
I hope you know exactly what I mean

*Sorry girl
Sorry girl
A chant for winter just might be our key
Sorry girl
Sorry girl
The Roots the green the grass
And all them trees

But the wait
Will never bring you down
Theres no way
Were gunna get around town

Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la la

Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la

Down Yonder

I should've found you
Under the microscope
Sailing to Scotland
I sold that bike you rode

Oh x4
Oh x4

I should've found you
That week we called it off
You went down yonder
And thought that you were lost
Spring Summer Autumn
And best of all
Then in comes Winter
When the electric angels fall

Oh x4
Oh x4

I should've found you
Many years ago
And if were lucky
We'll be able to watch them grow

Oh x4
Oh x4
Oh x4
Oh x4
