Lyrics

She came from Junction.
She was a cowgirl.
She wore her jeans
inside her boots.
Oh, she was baptized
in the Llano river.
She thanked the Good Lord
for her Texas roots.

Well I met her in Las Vegas at a company convention. I was taking care of business -
now did I fail to mention that I saw a lot of ladies there but none that could compare to that little girl from Texas, Lord, she made 'em stop and stare.

CHORUS

She said, "Wait a minute, Mr.
weren't you married to my sister?" That's the way she started talking and she just kept on a-squawking about how I left her sister and I broke her little heart. How she moved back in with Momma and works at the Mini Mart.

BRIDGE

Then something knocked me off my feet. I hit my head on the hard concrete. And when they brought me to, somebody said, "Do you know the man who left you black and blue."
(spoken) Well, yes I do.
