Down In Dallas

He drank to be happy
But it only made him mean
The kind of mean
A child can’t forget
We all had to learn
At an early age to lie
It was a secret
That the family kept
And all the love that could have been
He just drank away
‘Til finally all I ever felt was sad
And I’d give anything and everything
If only I could say
That I love you
And I forgive you dad
But I haven’t seen him
In such a long, long time
I hear he’s livin’ down in Dallas
In a bottle of wine
Mama tried to protect us
But she couldn’t protect herself
And when the trouble came
I would run and hide
From the darkness of the closet
I could hear the screams
Of her dying dreams
As he made mama cry
And all the love that could have been
He just drank away
‘Til finally all I ever felt was sad
And I’d give anything and everything
If only I could say
That I love you
And I forgive you dad
But I haven’t seen him
In such a long, long time
I hear he’s livin’ down in Dallas
In a bottle of wine
And I hope down on Mission Street
Those Texas winds are warm
That the good Lord’s stars will light his night
And keep him safe from harm
And I’d give anything and everything
If only I could say
That I love you
And I forgive you dad
Oh I miss you
And what we never had
But I haven’t seen him
In such a long, long time
I hear he’s livin’ down in Dallas
In a bottle of wine
