Amarillo By Morning
Amarillo by morning, up from San Antone.
Everything that I've got is just what I've got on.
When that sun is high in that texas sky
I'll be bucking at the county fair.
Amarillo by morning, Amarillo I'll be there.
They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Santa Fe.
Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way.
Well I'll be looking for eight when they pull that gate,
And I'm hoping that judge ain't blind.
Fool Hearted Memory
Nickels and dimes
Memories and wines
She's on his mind once again
The same old fool
The same old stool
Played by the rules but didn't win
There's an old love in his heart that he can't lose
He tried forgetting but he knows that it's no use
Now who wouldn't notice the fire in your eyes
Or the bitter direction of impending good-byes
Ive followed and folded, Im wilted in place
At the sight of you standing with streaks down your face
With your heart broke and running from the reason
You got your heart broke, don't give up on believing in me
Heart broke, who kept me from leaving?
With my heart broke
Honky Tonk Crazy
There's a hundred dollar bill on the table
To get me through the night
Got a tight blue jean honky tonk queen
To hold me tight
And the cowboy bands in mission
Of Texas waltz
It's music to my ears and a need to hear
To keep me from climbing the wall
Cause tonight I'll be honky tonk crazy
I Can't See Texas From Here
I come and go as I please
From down here
up north and in between
But baby it's a shame
'cause I always feel the same
When I can't see Texas from here
I can't see Texas from here
No matter how I try
it makes me wanna die
Lover In Disguise
There's a secret that I know about the lady that I love so
And I'm the only one she's shown her secret to
She's gentle and she's kind
She's proper and refine
But she lets down more than her hair
Alone in our room
Cause she's more than a lady
And there's a fire that burns behind those eyes
Marina Del Rey
We said goodbye
In Marina Del Rey
"I had a good time"
Was the last thing I heard her say
As I walked away
And on this plane back to Tennessee
My mind comes across her memory
In Marina Del Rey
The Only Thing I Have Left
Some people say I'm one of those guys the blessings of life over looked.
Sometimes I feel like the tattered, torn pages of some old paperback book.
All the places I've played and the money I made, I've still got nothin' to show.
And the only thing I have left in the whole wide world is you.
I gave it all I had every night for all these years,
Pourin' out my soul till it was gone.
I spread myself so thin that I'm just barely hangin' on.
But tonight I'm with you, you can carry me through
The Steal Of The Night
The band had just started when they walked in the door
He sat her at a table and strolled out on the floor
He grabbed the first sweet thang that gave him the eye
And left the door open for the steal of the night
Three dances later she was still in her chair
He was still on the dance floor like he didn't care
So I eased on over, there was no ring in sight
And I found myself facing the steal of the night.
