West Texas Wind
Thank Heavens For Dale Evans (1990)

It's a long thin line
It sure is a hot and dusty day
And Colorado is more than eight hundred miles away
I called to tell you 
That I'd be home sometime tonight
If the roads are clear and the weather is right

Now to say I miss you is puttin' it lightly, can't you see
There's nothing better than havin' you lyin' next to me
Early in the mornin', honey you're the first thing on my mind
Like a risin' sun to the travelin' kind

West Texas wind
Tell me why you try to hold me back
Tuggin' at my heart and pullin' on my sleeve
You and this old guitar
You're always up for pickin' just one more song
And if I listen long enough to you I might never leave

Now the lights of Denver
They're gonna shimmer in the deep red of the dawn
And I'll be rollin' in, bleary-eyed and hangin' on
And I'll grab my suitcase
And slip it lightly through the door
And swear again I won't leave him anymore

West Texas wind
Tell me why you try to hold me back
Tuggin' at my heart and pullin' on my sleeve
You and this old guitar
You're always up for pickin' just one more song
And if I listen long enough to you I might never leave

West Texas wind
Tell me why you try to hold me back
Tuggin' at my heart and pullin' on my sleeve
You and this old guitar
You're always up for pickin' just one more song
And if I listen long enough to you I might never leave

And if I listen long enough to you I might never leave
If I listen long enough to you I might never leave
