Ohio was a riverbank
A ten speed layin in the weeds
Cannonball off an old rope swing
Long, long summer days

Tennessee was a guitar
The first big dream of mine
If I made yeah that'd be just fine
I just wanted to play
I just wanted to play but

Texas
Was green eyes crying goodbye
Was a long drive
A heartache I'm
Still trying to get through
Texas was you

Caroline was a black car
A big white number 3

California was a yellow jeep
Cruising down Big Sur

Georgia was a summer job

And 'Bama was a spring break
I got memories all over the place
But only one still hurts
Only one still hurts

Texas
Was green eyes crying goodbye
Was a long drive
A heartache I'm
Still trying to get through
Texas was you

Texas
Was my whole life waving goodbye
Thought I'd die
A heartache I'm
Still trying to get through

Texas was you

It'll always be you

    His girl was from texas and she left him, so whenever he thinks of texas he remembers the heartbreak he experienced when they broke up.
