Lyrics

Southbound for Texas

IT?S BEEN FORTY-FIVE YEARS
SINCE HE HOPPED THAT TRAIN LEAVIN? TEXAS
HE WAS FIFTEEN YEARS OLD
AND HE JUST WANTED TO ROAM

BUT HIS DREAMS HAVE ALL FADED
LIKE THE MILES THAT HE?S LEFT BEHIND HIM
HE?S SIXTY YEARS OLD NOW
AND HE?S FINALLY GOING HOME

HE?S SOUTHBOUND FOR TEXAS
ABOARD A FAST MOVING TRAIN
AND IT WON?T BE LONG
TIL THIS OLD BOY?S HOME AGAIN

AND BY THE SOUND OF THE TRACKS
THAT TRAIN GOING AS FAST AS SHE ?LL GO
HE?S SOUTHBOUND FOR TEXAS
ABOARD A FAST TRAIN THAT?S GOING TO SLOW

HE?S JUST A DRIFTER
AND THERE?S NO PLACE HE AIN?T SEEN
FROM THE SIDE WALKS OF L.A.
TO THE DIRT ROADS OF NOME

BUT THE SOLES OF HIS SHOES
ARE NOW TO THIN FOR WALKING
THAT?S WHY THAT OLD FOOL
CAN?T WAIT TO GO HOME
