Telephone Road

Album: El Corazon (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • Telephone Road is a real road on the southeast side of Houston, Texas. This song is a perfect description of many of the families that grew up in and around the many Houston oil refineries. The line from the chorus, "Telephone Road is 10 miles long, 50 car lots and 100 honky-tonks" is very true description. >>
