All My Ex’s Live In Texas

print

   All my ex’s live in Texas
   And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to be
   But all my ex’s live in Texas
   And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

Rosanna’s down in Texarcana wanted me to push her broom
And sweet Arlene in Abilene she forgot I owned the moon
And Allison in Galviston somehow lost her sanity
And Dimples who now lives in Temple’s got the law looking for me.

I remember that old Rio river where I learned to swim
But it brings to mind another time when I wore my welcome thin
My transcendental meditation I go there each night
But I’ll always come back to myself long before daylight.

Some folks think I’m hiding
it’s been rumored that I died
But I’m alive and well in Tennessee.
