Texas Morning

Listen while you read!
Right in the middle of a ten cent scenery
Shuffled and stacked on a post card rack
There's a cute little girl with a Shetland pony.
She smiles at me but I can't smile back.
Cactus Jack drinks coffee black
Tells me it's my lucky day.
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've come a long, long way.
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've come a long, long way.

She left me cold on a Winter's morning
And cold it's been for a long, long time.
She told me Texas was where she's goin'
And I've come looking but she's so hard to find.
Cactus Jack drinks coffee black
Tells me it's my lucky day.
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've come a long, long way.
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've come a long, long way.

Oh, I don't know just where I'll find her.
Maybe the soldier with the suitcase saw her.
She just said she was goin' to Texas for a little while.
So I'm lookin' for a girl with light brown hair,
And hazel eyed, she's not too pretty, but a beautiful smile.
She just said, "Well, I'm goin' to Texas for a little while."

Cook in the back he's gettin' curious,
He asks the waitress where I'm from.
She just says, "Well, I've never seen him.
He's prob'ly just a California bum."
Cactus Jack he says, "That's right."
As I walk out into the night.
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've got a long, long ride.
Five o'clock in the Texas Morning
And I've got a long, long ride.
Outside, the sun is up And the wind blows me,
Like a Dixie cup Down the highway
