Back Roads of Texas
Back Roads of Texas
Way south of the city, where ya can't see the lights
Where coyotes are a yelpin, and the stars are real bright
Straight as an arrow, it runs on out of sight
That back road in Texas, where I learned about life
On the back roads of Texas, when you drive into town
Might be ninety degrees out, you can't roll windows down
For the dust it will get ya, and cover your cloths
It'll get in your eyes, and go up your nose
On the back roads of Texas, white dust in my hair
It was finer than flower, it was found every where
When ya live on the back roads, nobody cares
They know you're coming or going, cause there's dust in the air
In the fields in the springtime, out in the sun
Magnolias and bluebells, watch jack pumps run
They'll be seesawing up, and seesawing down
Year after year, pulling black gold from the ground
On the back roads of Texas, I'll spend my whole life
Raisin my children, and lovein my wife
When you live on the back roads, you're going nowhere
You'll die with dust in your vanes, and dust in your hair
