Waylon Jennings – Cactus Texas lyrics

Verse 1:
Do you remember Cactus Texas
Nothing but a wide place in the road
Eighteen wheelers never go there
Main Street's just too narrow for the load
A little town of honest people
Some we haven't seen for quite awhile
I was young and restless
And we both were full of dreams and runnin' wild

Verse 2:
We left our old hometown and family
Barely had a nickel to our name
We were out to win the world
Not once looking back or losing aim
We hit the big town and the big time
Not a lot of effort in the deal
But in the bargain we lost touch
With one another and old feelings that were real

Verse 3:
In a big house up on easy street
Where too much never seems to be enough
We're not the same two people
Far away from all the days when the times were rough
Including you and I
Everything is separated by a wall
It's not something we can talk about
In fact we seldom even talk at all

Verse 4:
I don't think we realize
How or why we ever came this far
Let's go back to Cactus Texas
Maybe once we're there
We'll find out where we are
