Inside Texas

Album: Iron Flowers (2005)

  • 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

    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 Writer/s: GREY DELISLE
