Tagging JBug:

I'm going down to Austin, TEXAS
I'm going down to save my soul
Get that bar-b-que and chili
Eat my fill then come back home
I'm gonna take my baby with me
We gonna have a high ol' time
We gonna eat till we get silly
Sho' do make a beer taste fine

Chorus
Oh my, momma ain't that Texas Cookin' something
Oh my, momma it'll stop yo' belly and backbone bumpin'
Oh my, momma ain't that Texas Cookin' good
Oh my, momma eat it everyday if I could

I know a man that cook armadillo
tastes so sweet he calls it pie
I know a woman makes pan dulce
tastes so good it gets you high

Get them enchiladas greasy
get them steaks chicken fried
Sho' do make a man feel happy
to see white gravy on the side

Chorus

I know a place that got fried okra
beat anything I ever saw
I know a man that cook cabrito
it must be against the law

We gonna get a big ol' sausage
a big ol' plate of ranch style beans
I could eat the heart of Texas
we gonna need some brand new jeans

Chorus

Well, I was sittin' in a coffee shop, just havin' a cup to pass the time
Swappin' rodeo stories with this old cowboy friend of mine
When some motorcycle riders started snickerin' in the back
They started pokin' fun at my friend's hat

Now one ol' boy said, "Hey Tex, where'd you park your horse?"
My friend just pulled his hat down low, but they couldn't be ignored
One husky fellow said, "I think I'll rip that hat right off your head"
That's when my friend turned around, and this is what he said...

Chorus:
"You'll ride a black tornado across a western sky
Rope an ol' blue northern and milk it `til it's dry
Bull dawg the Mississippi, pin its ears down flat
Long before you take this cowboy's hat"

"Now, partner, this old hat is better left alone
You see, it used to be my daddy's, but last year he passed on
My nephew skinned the rattler that makes up this ol' hat band
But back in '69 he died in Vietnam"

"Now the eagle feather was given to me by an Indian friend of mine
But somebody ran him down somewhere around that Arizona line
And a real special lady gave me this hat pin
But I don't know if I'll ever see her again"

(Chorus)

"Now if your leather jacket means to you what this hat means to me
Then I guess we understand each other and we'll just let it be
But if you still think it's funny, man, you got my back up against the wall
And if you touch my hat, you're gonna have to fight us all"

Well, right then I caught a little sadness in that gang leader's eyes
And he turned back to the others and they all just kinda shuffled on outside
But when my friend turned back towards me, I noticed his old hat brim
Well, it was turned up in a big ol' TEXAS grin

(Chorus)

Don't forget about the days
When we would dance in the rain
Just keep your head up high
and keep on lookin' for the sky
Vegas ain't too far
I can get there by tonight
Give me a place to stay
and I'll be headed for the neon lights

I know it's gonna be hard
You'll feel all by yourself
Just think of me baby
Keep that picture on your shelf
I'll take off a few days
Use my vacation time
Show up at your door
With a bottle of red wine

Chorus
Baby I'll bring TEXAS to you
Whenever you want me to
Just pick up the phone
and dial that same ole' number
and baby i'll, i'll bring Texas to you

the sun rises from east
and sets in the west
and just as certain
you bring out my very best
i'll bring the honky tonk
we'll play that music loud
sit on top of the roof
and sing to the clouds
you'll be listenin' to your favorite
Pat Green

Wonderin' why you ever
left this red dirt scene
that new pop-country
it just ain't the same
seems like all they want
is fortune and fame

Chorus (X2)

woah baby

Bringin' Texas to you
whenever, whenever you want me to
oh baby i'll bring it to you
baby i'm comin' for you

JBug says:
I was raised off of old Route 3
Out past where the blacktop ends
We'd walk to church on Sunday mornin'
Race barefoot back to Johnson's fence

That's where I first saw Mary
On that roadside pickin' blackberries
That summer I turned a corner in my soul
Down that RED DIRT road

Chorus:
It's where I drank my first beer, it's where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car, I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven is full of sinners and believers
Learned that happiness on earth ain't just for high achievers
I've learned, I've come to know
There's life at both ends of that red dirt road

Her daddy didn't like me much
With my shackled up GTO
I'd sneak out in the middle of the night
Throw rocks at her bedroom window

We'd turn out the headlights
Drive by the moonlight
Talk about what the future might hold
Down that red dirt road

(Chorus)

I went into the world and I came back in
I lost Mary -- oh, I got her back again
And driving home tonight feels like
I've found a long-lost friend

(Chorus)

Yes, I've learned, I've come to know
There's life at both ends of that red dirt road

Texas Woman says:
All the girls all dance with the boys from the city,
And they don't care to dance with me.
Now it ain't my fault that the fields are muddy,
And the RED clay stains my feet.

And it's under my nails and it's under my collar,
And it shows on my Sunday clothes.
Though I do my best with the soap and the water,
But the damned old dirt won't go.

But when I pass through the pearly gate,
Will my gown be gold instead?
Or just a red clay robe with red clay wings,
And a red clay halo for my head?

Now it's mud in the spring and it's dust in the summer,
When it blows in a crimson tide.
Until trees and leaves and the cows are the colour,
Of the dirt on the mountainside.

But when I pass through the pearly gate,
Will my gown be gold instead?
Or just a red clay robe with red clay wings,
And a red clay halo for my head?

Now Jordan's banks they're red and muddy,
And the rolling water is wide.
But I got no boat, so I'll be good and muddy,
When I get to the other side.

And when I pass through the pearly gate,
Will my gown be gold instead?
Or just a red clay robe with red clay wings,
And a red clay halo for my head?

I'll take the red clay robe with the red clay wings,
And a red clay halo for my head.

RIP Stuart Swanlund of the Marshall Tucker Band
August 4th

In the corner of dark bar room
Sat an ole' COWboy singin' western tunes
Singin' songs he learned as a child
All about the West back when it was wild

He said he came from down Texas way
The cowboys were tough
The women the same way
Said he was a star back in '31
Hollywood had liked him for some songs that he had done

Chorus
He's the last of the singin' cowboys
Singin' songs of inspiration and joy
Yippie Yi Yo, Yippie Ay Aye

He took a break, just to chug him down a beer
C'mon folks holler out the songs you'd like to hear
If I know one, I know a million tunes
I'm not up here playin' for me
This is all just for you

And then he bragged on the Stetson hat that he wore
Said it was the finest made since the war
And he won the silver buckle ridin' on a cow
And as he laughed he said
I'll bet you're wonderin' how?

Chorus

And after three hours or maybe more
A lady grabbed his arm
and showed him to the door
The bartender said, "He's blind, you see
Don't tell him the only audience he had was you and me"

Chorus

JBug says:
Oh, you get me ready in your '56 Chevy
Why don't we go sit down in the shade?
Take shelter on my front porch
The dandelion sun scorching
Like a glass of cold lemonade
I will do the laundry if you pay all the bills

Chorus:
Where is my John Wayne?
Where is my prairie son?
Where is my happy ending?
Where have all the COWBOYs gone?

Why don't you stay the evening?
Kick back and watch the TV
And I'll fix a little something to eat
Oh, I know your back hurts from working on the tractor
How do you take your coffee, my sweet?
I will raise the children if you pay all the bills

(Chorus)

I am wearing my new dress tonight
But you, but you don't even notice me
(Say goodbyes, say goodbyes, say goodbyes)

We finally sold the Chevy when we had another baby
And you took the job in Tennessee
You made friends at the farm
And you joined them at the bar
Almost every single day of the week
I will wash the dishes while you go have a BEER

(Chorus)

Where is my Marlboro man?
Where is his shiny gun?
Where is my lonely ranger?
Where have all the cowboys gone? (X3)

Yippee yo, yippee yeah (X7)
Yeah ye-yeah, ye-yeah yeah

Texas Woman says:
Your phone call took my by surprise
Gee, it's been a long, long time
Since those hot and humid Texas nights
When we went swimm'n in the tide
Corpus Christi seems so far away
And I'm not talk'n 'bout the miles
And there ain't much I wouldn't give today
Just to see one of your smiles
[Chorus:]
But here I sit alone in Denver
Sipp'n the 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
Save the girl and ride away
And I was hoping as the credits rolled
He'd make it back to her someday
[Chorus]
It's a thousand miles or more
From here to your front door
I'd be there tomorrow if I left today
And I'd just pack up my guitar
You know it's really not that far
When you called you said I'd have a place to stay
[Chorus]

Speaking of phone calls....

[Outside
The storm clouds gathering,
Moved silently along the dusty boulevard.
Where flowers turning crane their fragile necks
So they can in turn
Reach up and kiss the sky.

They are driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye
Someone is CALLing.

I remember when you held my hand
In the park we would play when the circus came to town.
Look! Over here.

Outside
The circus gathering
Moved silently along the rainswept boulevard.
The procession moved on the shouting is over
The fabulous freaks are leaving town.

They are driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye.
The carinval is over.

That's incredible, Omni. Love it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here we go to another candle I know
All the girls there playing on a jelly roll

Time to take a ride
Time to take it in a midnite EYE
And if you wanna go, get on below
Peeking out the day
Dreaming out the crazy way
Finger on the love, it's all above

Everywhere it's six-sex-six by luck
A satellite wish will make it just enough
You'll be making out
With a witch in a coffee truck

Time to rock the road
And tell the story of the jelly rollin'
Dirty boots are on, hi-di-ho
Peeking out the black, dreaming in a crack
Satan got her tongue, now it's undone

I got some dirty boots, yeah, dirty boots
I got some dirty boots, baby
Dirty boots
Hey!

I told you about Strawberry Fields
YOU KNOW the place where nothing is real
Well, HERE's ANOTHER place you can GO
Where everything flows

Looking through the bent backed tulips
To see how the other half live
Looking through a glass onion

I told you about the walrus and me, man
You know that we're as close as can be, man
Well, here's another clue for you all
The walrus was Paul

Standing on the cast iron shore, yeah
Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet, yeah
Looking through a glass onion

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Looking through a glass onion

I told you about the fool on the hill
I tell you, man, he living there still
Well, here's another place you can be
Listen to me

Fixing a hole in the ocean
Trying to make a dovetail joint, yeah
Looking through a glass onion

Texas Woman says:
Beatle bones and smokin' Stones
The dry sands fall
The STRAWBERRY mouth; strawberry moth; strawberry caterpillar
Strawberry butterfly; strawberry fields
The winged eel slither on the heels of today's children
Strawberry feels forever

Yeah, roosters, ol' glass roosters, stick to your race
In a drag-queen, live-wood farmhouse
Tractors are clawin'; the folks are crawlin'
Trees in a row climbing a coach and I blow rich
Red, blue, yellow sunset
Where I set and you set; and I've loved and you've loved
And I've seen and you've seen

Salt Man has just made his mark - and crumbled
The dark - the light - the dark - the day
Porcelain children see through white lights
Soft-cracker bats, Cheshire cats named
The Dark - the Light - the Dark - the Day

Blue veins through gray-felt tomorrows
Cellular sail-boat - ye ole feathered kind
Blow it into a pond swayin' in circles
Red, blue, yellow sunset.
Where I've set and you've set; and I've loved and you've loved
What I saw and you saw
Strawberry feels forever

Omnireader says:
I'm taking a moment just imagining that I'm dancing with you
I'm your pole, and all you're wearing is your shoes
You got soul, you know what to do to turn me on until I write a song about you
And you have your own engaging style
And you've got the knack to vivify
And you make my slacks a little tight, you may unfasten them if you like
That's if you crash and spend the night

But you don't fold, you don't fade
You've got everything you need, especially me

Chorus
Curl your upper lip up and let me look around
Ride your tongue along your bottom lip and bite down
And bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch
Because they're the perfect jumping off point of getting closer to your

BUTTERFLY
Well you float on by
Oh, kiss me with your eyelashes tonight
Or, Eskimo your nose real close to mine
And let's mood the lights and finally make it right
But you don't fold, you don't fade, you've got everything you need
Especially me
Sister, you've got it all

Chorus (2x)

You've got it all, you've got it all

Doll I need to see you pull your knee socks up
Let me feel you up side, down slide, in slide, out slide, over here
Climbing to my mouth.
Now, child.

Butterfly, well you landed on my mind
Dammit you landed on my ear and then you crawled inside
Now I see you perfectly behind closed eyes
I wanna fly with you and I don't wanna lie to you
Cause I, cause I can't recall a better days
I'm coming to shine on the occasion

You're an open minded lady
You've got it all
And I never forget a face
If I'm making my own
I have my days
Let's face the fact here, it's you who's got it all

You know that fortune favors the brave
Well let me get paid while I make you breakfast
The rest is up to you, you make the call

Chorus

Cause I can't recall a better day
I'm coming to shine on the occasion
You're a sophisticated lady, oh, you've got it all

You've got it all, you've got it all, you've got it all (3x)
You've got it all, you've got it all...

Butterfly, baby, well you've got it all

Bah! Ba-ba-ba-Bah! Ba-ba-ba-Bah!

When the world in which you live in,
Gets a bit too much to bear,
And you need someone to lean on,
When you look, there's no one there

You're gonna find ME, out in the country,
Yeah, you're gonna find me, way out in the country,
Where the air is good, and the day is fine,
And the pretty girl, has a hand in mine,
And the silver stream, is a poor man's wine,
In the country, in the country

When you're walking in the city,
And you're feeling rather small,
And the people on the sidewalk,
Seem to form a solid wall

You're gonna find me, out in the country,
Hey, you're gonna find me, way out in the country,
Where the air is good, and the day is fine,
And the pretty girl, has a hand in mine,
And the silver stream, is a poor man's wine,
In the country, in the country

Hurry, hurry, hurry,
For the time is slipping by,
You don't need a ticket,
It belongs to you and I

Come on an join me, out in the country,
Where the air is good, and the day is fine,
And the pretty girl, has a hand in mine,
And the silver stream, is a poor man's wine,
In the country, in the country

She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol
And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal
Well she pressed her chest against me
About the time the juke box broke
Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck
And these are the words she spoke

Chorus:
Blow up your T.V. throw away your paper
Go to the COUNTRY, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus on your own

Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive
For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve
Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo
Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do

Repeat chorus:

Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place
When just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face
I said "You must know the answer."
"She said, "No but I'll give it a try."
And to this very day we've been livin' our way
And here is the reason why

We blew up our T.V. threw away our paper
Went to the country, built us a home
Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches
They all found Jesus on their own

Two days past eighteen
He was waitin' for the bus in his army greens
Sat down in a booth at a café there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair

He's a little shy so she gave him a smile
So he said, "Would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talkin' to me? I'm feelin' a little low"
She said, "I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go"

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said, "I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I've had no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I send one back here to you?"

Chorus:
I cried, never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' SOLDIER
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone
When a letter says a soldier's coming HOME

So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart, it might be love
And all of the things he was so scared of
He said, "When it's getting kinda rough over here
I think about that day sittin' down at the pier
And close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Now don't worry, but I won't be able to write for awhile"

(Chorus)

One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the anthem sang
A man said, "Folks, would you bow your heads
For a list of local Vietnam dead?"
Cryin' all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

(Chorus)
