There's a boy with a face like the bright Texas sun And he dreams about train smoke when daylight is done Though his high lonesome song causes maidens heartbreak To his woman he's sweeter than red velvet cake
He howls like a twister and cries like a storm But it won't be too long 'til he's sunny and warm With a heart like the Lonestar that spans far and wide You could drive to forever and still be inside Texas
Well his mama's an angel, his daddy's a saint And he don't act like someone he knows that he ain't When he sits on the front porch and strums that guitar Makes it feel just like Texas wherever you are

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
