  • Been ten years but I was a young man
    Fifteen more and I'll be old
    Couple years I may be a rich man
    Where it ends up I don't really know

    Looking out your weathered windows
    Reaching for what you can't hold
    Considering the ways that the wind blows
    Where it ends up you don't really know
    You're just looking for a reason and a place to call your own

    Nacogdoches up to Lucas, could you pick a better place to lose some change?
    Down in Kemah it might seem a little too long a walk out to La Grange
    Corsicana, they might slam you. You'll be thirsty for a glass of lemonade
    Try to slow down and hang around along the way

    Looking out your weathered windows
    Reaching for what you can't hold
    Considering the ways that the wind blows
    Where it ends up you don't really know
    You're just looking for a reason and a place to call your own

    From Odessa up to Dumas, could you pick a better place to lose some change?
    In Abiline, it might seem like Uvalde couldn't be further away
    Waxahatcha they could catch you, chase you way back to Matagorta Bay

    Nacogdoches up to Lucas, could you pick a better place to lose some change?
    Down in Kemah it might seem a little too long a walk out to La Grange
    Corsicana, they might slam you. You'd be thirsty for a glass of lemonade
    Try to slow down and hang around along the way Writer/s: Austin Jenkins, James Petralli, Joshua Block, Steve Terebecki
