The Browns – Dawn In San Antone lyrics

Footprints on the sidewalk
Crush by me in the night
The tavern signs on this old street
Are stepping stones of life
I walk and walk and search for you
Half stoned and all alone
How much longer can it be
To dawn in San Antone

Neon painted pictures
Flash red and green and blue
I seem to feel you press my back
And draw me close to you
Memories that break my mind
Hurt deep when I'm alone
As the night walks slowly
To dawn in San Antone

I may let a strange girl love me
Just to keep me from the cold
But when I'm with another
Your mem'ry's what I hold

I still have the rosebud
I've bought you for your hair
A half smoked cigarette I saved
Was one I let you share
Time went so fast when you were mine
But now that I'm alone
There's nothing more that comes so slow
As dawn in San Antone

There's nothing more that comes so slow
As dawn in San Antone...
