Beaumont

Album: Trouble in Mind (2008)
  • I saw you leanin' on a memory
    With your back turned to the crowd
    In that little bar on Murphy
    Where they play guitar too loud
    There were people drinkin' whiskey
    There were hearts about to leave
    It was cold as hell for Houston
    It was almost New Year's Eve

    All the way from Beaumont
    With a white rose in my hand
    I could not wait forever babe,
    I hope you understand

    The night was feelin' lucky
    So I asked you to dance
    And the way you looked up at me
    Made me think I had a chance
    When I put my arms around you
    I knew you weren't givin' in
    I hope it will be different if I pass this way again
    All the way from Beaumont, with a white rose in my hand
    I could not wait forever babe,
    I hope you understand

    I walked the road to get here
    With a guitar and a case
    I'd stopped in Pasadena
    If I'd known about this place
    But you looked like forever
    Where the water meets the shore
    I've been thinkin' about you, baby
    I can't do that anymore

    I saw you leanin' on a memory
    With your back turned to the crowd
    In that little bar on Murphy
    Where they play guitar too loud
    There were people drinkin' whiskey
    There were hearts about to leave
    It was cold as hell for Houston
    It was almost New Year's Eve

    [Repeat: x2]
    All the way from Beaumont
    With a white rose in my hand
    I could not wait forever babe,
    I hope you understand Writer/s: HAYES CARLL
