Texas Time In A Texas Town



Born out on Highway 9 down in Corpus

Saw a mermaid in the gulf or maybe a porpoise

What a time at South Padre during Spring break

In Amarillo one time I tried to eat a giant steak

And I'm drunk in Del Rio again

Drank beer, long neck bottles of Lone Star

Just sittin' on a stool at Mickey Gilley's Bar

I fell in love with a country gal from Abilene

d*mn, she had the nicest legs I'd ever seen

And I'm drunk in Del Rio again

Fifty yard line seats to watch America's team

Roger, Troy, Emmett, Deon, Bullet Bob, what a dream

Spent my whole pay check at a house in La Grange

Partner, lets just say, it aint home on the range

And I'm drunk in Del Rio again

 And I'm drunk in Del Rio again
