Jon Randall – Austin lyrics

(Jon Randall)

Where did all my friends go
What happened to my scene
Feels like the Memphis Mafia
Up and left the king

And I've been swimming for redemption
But I'm drowning in bureaucracy
And I can't find exemption
From all the mediocrity

And the whiskey and women in this town are killing me
If I don't put new boots on I won't ever get on my feet
I've been running with the devil and there's gonna be hell to pay
If I don't get to Austin I swear I'm gonna fade away
I swear I'm gonna fade away

I don't mean to bitch and judge
But baby I gotta go
Where they still play Merle Haggard
And the girls love to rock and roll
And I've been looking for perspective
Between the highway signs
But all roads lead to Texas
Ya'll look me up some time

(Repeat chorus)
