When I look south I see the storm clouds roll
On their way to Old Mexico
I don’t wanna be alone
And the rays of light through my Shiner Boch bottle
Make me wanna turn the key and put down the throttle
Get lost down 35

When I get tied down by the ties that bind
Seems like I'm never gonna find the time
To do what I need.

That's to find me a place where I think
Talk about love, laugh, and drink.
And there's someone there who cares.

Chorus:
Cause no matter how big the storms
I know I can find me a place that’s warm
The sun is shining somewhere in Texas
I hope it’s shining on here
Somewhere done in Texas

In a place that big a man could get lost
Never mind the time forget about the cost
There’s more important things

She’s somewhere smiling north of San Antone
I’ve got her number but I stare at the phone
Cause I still want to believe

Chorus

To hell with horoscopes and empty dreams
To hell with Valentino and his cut off pair of jeans
Cause I know I can make it there
On a twelve pack and a prayer
