Well, i had a buddy back in '81,
And we made ourselves a pact.
We were headin' for the new pipelines,
We weren't never comin' back.
Well we worked 80 hours making time and a half,
But La Grange was too damn hot.
We drove back home at the end of that week
And we spent it all on pot.
Chorus:
I'll see you in houston, if i ever get out that way,
I'll see you in dallas, but i wont have long to stay,
If ur ever out west soon, and ur feeling like slowing down,
I'll see you around, around my hometown.
Well, i played ball every single fall,
I could run just like the wind.
Went to college like they asked me too
But they didn't ask my friends.
Don't think i seen a single classroom,
But i drank a lot of beer.
Buddies still love to listen to me when i talk about that year.
Chorus:
So i'll see you in houston, if i'm ever get out that way.
I'll see you in dallas, but i wont have long to stay,
If you're ever out west soon, and you're feeling like slowing down.
I'll see you around, around my hometown.

Now i got myself a little band, and we're pretty good i guess
But i never learned how to wear my hair, and i never learned how to dress.
So i'm leaving for the last time honey,i'm never more to rome.
Gonna pack my bags a little heavy this time gonna head my ass back home.
Chorus:
So i'll see you in Nashville, if i ever get out that way.
I'll see you in Austin, but i wont have long to stay,
If ur ever out west soon, and ur feeling like slowin down.
I'll see you around, around my hometown.
I'll see you around, around my hometown
