LYLE LOVETT lyrics

Thats Right

Original and similar lyrics
(Lyle Lovett/Willis Alan Ramsey/Alison Rogers) You say you're not from Texas Man as if I couldn't tell You think you pull your boots on right And wear your hat so well So pardon me my laughter 'Cause I sure do understand Even Moses got excited When he saw the promised land That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway See I was born and raised in Texas And it means so much to me Though my girl comes from down in Georgia We were up in Tennessee And as we were driving down the highway She asked me baby what's so great How come you're always going on About your Lone Star State I said that's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway Oh the road it looked so lovely As she stood there on the side And she grew smaller in my mirror As I watched her wave goodbye Those boys from Carolina They sure enough could sing But when they came on down to Texas We all showed them how to swing Now David's on the radio And old Champ's still on the guitar And Uncle Walt he's home with Heidi Hiding in her loving arms That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway They're OK in Oklahoma Up in Arkansas they're fair But those old folks in Missouri They don't even know you're there But at a dance hall down in Texas That's the finest place to be The women they all look beautiful And the men will buy your beer for free And they'll say that's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway So won't you let me help you Mister Just pull your hat down the way I do And buy your pants just a little longer And next time somebody laughs at you You just tell 'em you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas That's right you're not from Texas But Texas wants you anyway

Old Shep

ALABAMA "Songs Of Inspiration"
When I was a lad and old Shep was a pup Over hills and meadows we'd stray Just a boy and his dog, we were both full of fun We grew up together that way I remember the time at the old mill pond When I would've drowned beyond doubt But old Shep was right there, to the rescue he came He jumped in and helped pull me out As, the years passed and rolled, at last he grew old And his eyesight was fast growing dim. Then one day the doctor looked at me and said ?I can't do no more for him, Jim? I went to his side and sat on the ground And laid his old head on my knee Well, he was the best friend that I ever had I cried so I scarcely could see Old Sheppie he knew, he was going to go For he reached out and licked at my hand He looked up at me, just as much as to say We're parting but you understand Now old Sheppie is gone where the good doggies go And no more with old Shep will I roam But if dogs have a heaven, there's one thing for sure Old Shep has a wonderful home

How Do

Carpenter Mary-Chapin "State Of The Heart"
Well that's a real nice jacket son It looks like it cost you too And that car you're driving Hey does that belong to you Well you don't look familiar Are you new in town Here's a local girl Who wants to show you around How do Where'd you get that accent son It matches your cowboy boots Tonigt those lone star ladies Must be lonesome and oh so blue Cause we're a thousand miles From the Texas line And if you've no objection son Tonight you're mine Ho do Well I've been to Paris baby I've been to Dallas too But I didn't see no one there Who looked half as good as you So if you ain't in a hurry baby Just sit tight I'm sort of in the mood To speak some French tonight Et vous? How do

The Right Place

AARON WATSON "The Honky Tonk Kid"
[Chorus:] Lord don't you walk with a little Sawin' on a fiddle and the crying of a steel guitar Coming from the heart and soul Born and bred in the ole Lone Star Get them honky tonkin' blues Let them be your saving grace If you want to hear some country Then you've come to the right place You miss Waylon, if it don't make you smile Like Willie and George Jones You better stick around a while You like Merle, Buck and Johnny We might just get along But if you don't, go slap your mommy Cause your momma raised you wrong [Chorus] I like gravy on my biscuit, I like my chicken fried I drink my coffee black, I sure like my Charlie Pride Well I still solute ole Glory and I give glory to the lord I tip my hat to ole E.T. and his Texas Troubadours [Chorus]

Lone Star State Of Mind

DON WILLIAMS "Currents"
Your phone call took me by surprise Gee its been a long, long time Since those hot and humid Texas nights We went swimmin' in the tide Corpus Cristi seems so far away And I'm not talkin' ‘bout the miles There ain't much I wouldn't give today Just to see one of your smiles CHORUS: But I'm stuck here in Denver Sippin' California wine And I've got all night to remember you I'm in a lone star state of mind I just saw John Wayne on the late, late show He saved the girl and rode away But I was hopin' as the credits rolled He'd make it back to her some day An' its a thousand miles or more From here to your front door Oh, I'd be there tomorrow if I had my way Well, I'd jus' pack up my guitar You know its really not that far And when you called you said I'd have a place to stay

She's In Love With A Rodeo Man

DON WILLIAMS "Don Williams, Vol. 2"
She's a barmaid in a west Texas dance hall She's there ev'ry night till they close And the cowboy's pay for the jukebox And she plays “San Antonio Rose” Well I know her life ain't been easy And the lines in her face say it all But she still is a beautiful woman In the lights of the Texas dance hall CHORUS: But she won't sit down at your table And I know that you can't hold her hand She won't go home with you cowboy She's in love with a rodeo man Well he's hard and he's scarred and he's grayin' And he's stoned most all of the time And he drinks at a dark corner table And he waits there until closin' time
