Texas.

Texas.

(whistle in)
Jamie is my sweetheart,
I love her, yes I do,
And I am so content to say,
That she loves me too,
I would do anything,
Just to keep her heart,
But when I went to Texas,
We nearly fell apart,

O', what am I doin' in Texas,
What am I doin' alone,
What am I doin' two thousand miles,
Away from my home,
How much time have I wasted,
What have I got to show,
What am I doin' in Texas,
I don't know,

I told my mom and dad,
That I was doin' fine,
I didn't give them any room,
To read between the lines,
I wanted so bad to scream,
Dad, I'm so alone,
I know you might not believe in me,
But Texas ain't my home,

O', what am I doin' in Texas,
What am I doin' alone,
What am I doin' two thousand miles,
Away from my home,
How much time have I wasted,
What have I got to show,
What am I doin' in Texas,
I don't know,

Goin' away to Texas,
Was the thing to do at first,
But I'll never forget the feelin',
When bad things turned to worse,
So Jamie put a dress on,
And Mom clean up my room,
'Cos this here boy,
Is comin' home real soon,

O', what am I doin' in Texas,
What am I doin' alone,
What am I doin' two thousand miles,
Away from my home,
How much time have I wasted,
What have I got to show,
What am I doin' in Texas,
I don't know,

(One more time from the one, two, three, four!),
What am I doin' in Texas,
What am I doin' alone,
What am I doin' two thousand miles,
Away from my home,
How much time have I wasted,
What have I got to show,

(Slow it down now!),
I'm in Texas,(slower!),

But I'm comin' (you got it now),

I'm comin'... home (woo!)
(whistle out).
