Jerry Jeff Walker – Texas On My Mind lyrics

Django Walker

I woke up this morning, Texas on my mind
Thinking about my friends, and a girl I left behind
The way she held me when we kissed, the loving we've done
And how I left her waving goodbye, standing in a Texas sun

Chorus:
I've got half a mind to call her, half a mind to go
Jump a big jet liner and wing it on my way back home

And all the morning it was raining on the streets of Liverpool
So I stayed in and played guitar and sang the lovesick blues
My mind kept going back in time when we both had fun
And how I left her waving goodbye, standing in a Texas sun

Chorus

In my dreams she's still in love with me
But I'd have to travel home to see
If she's found another man to take the place of me
Guess I'll have to keep on dreaming sunny memories

Wishing I was back there doesn't help me much at all
When I want to hold her, it doesn't help much to call
Stuck here in this seaport town longing for the one
That I left behind me there, standing in a Texas sun

Chorus x2
