Mama said,
"Tell me what's wrong child,
You didn't eat enough
To keep a bird alive,
And you haven't said
Two words to me all evening."
She said,
"Girl, you've got your long face on,
Your eyes are red,
And your smile is gone."
So I broke down,
And I told my mama the reason.
I'm in love and he's in Dallas.
I'm as blue as a girl can be.
Is he down there thinkin' about my love,
Or driftin' away from me?
I'm in love and he's in Dallas
But that's not the way it's s'pposed to be.
Can a promise reach from Texas
All the way to Tennesee?
I really shoulda heard
From him by now,
He promised he'd write
When things settled down.
And send me money
For a ticket when things got better.
And mama I guess
He's just workin' hard
And you know how
Those cowboys are.
But it's been three weeks
And I ain't got a letter.
I'm in love and he's in Dallas,
I'm as blue as a girl can be.
Is he down there thinkin' about my love,
Or driftin' away from me?
And I'm in love and he's in Dallas,
And it's not the way it's s'pposed to be.
Can a promise reach from Texas,
All the way to Tennesee?
Well I'm in love and he's in Dallas,
I'm as blue as a girl can be.
Can a promise reach from Texas,
All the way to Tennesee?
