  • She said she needed a break
    A little time to think
    But then she went to Cleveland
    With some guy named Leland
    That she met at the bank

    There's nothing wrong with Ohio
    Except the snow and the rain
    I really like Drew Carey
    And I'd love to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

    So when your done doing whatever
    And when your through doing whoever
    You know Denton county will be right here waiting for you
    Come back to Texas
    It's just not the same since you went away
    Before you lose your accent
    And forget all about the Lone Star State
    There's a seat for you at the rodeo
    And I've got every slow dance saved
    Besides the Mexican food sucks north of here anyways

    I think I made a mistake
    It's not that easy to take
    She went to make a deposit
    Then she cleaned out her closet
    Guess I'll sit here and wait
    For her to come back home (I wish she'd come back home)
    It shouldn't take very long (so long, so long)
    I bet she misses the sunrise
    And Mrs. Baird's fruit pies
    But I could be wrong

    So when your done doing whatever
    And when your through doing whoever
    You know Denton County will be right here waiting for you
    Come back to Texas
    It's just not the same since you went away
    I bet you missed your exit
    And drove right on through the Lone Star State
    There's a seat for you at the rodeo
    And I've got every slow dance saved
    Besides the Mexican food sucks north of here anyway

    Troy Aikman wants you back
    Willy Nelson wants you back
    Nasa wants you back
    And the Bush twins want you back (la la la la)
    Pantera wants you back (la la la la)
    And Bluebell wants you back

    I got a premonition
    Of taking a petition
    And the whole state's gonna sign

    Come back to Texas
    It's just not the same since you went away
    Before you lose your accent
    And forget all about the Lone Star State
    There's a seat for you at the rodeo
    And I got every slow dance saved

    Come back to Texas
    It's just not the same since you went away
    Before you lose your accent
    And forget all about the Lone Star State
    There's a seat for you at the rodeo
    And I got every slow dance saved

    Besides the Mexican food sucks north of here anyway

    Besides the Mexican food sucks north of here anyway

    Besides the Mexican food sucks north of here anyway (yeah) Writer/s: Jaret Reddick, Ted Bruner, Zac Maloy
