Somewhere Down In Texas – Jason Boland

Pin It

I set this as my new ring tone last week – I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of this song… it’s been one of my faves since his Live at Billy Bobs album launched in 2002.

Somewhere Down In Texas
Jason Boland and the Stragglers

When I look South and see the storm clouds roll
on their way to old Mexico… I don’t wanna be alone

And the rays of light through my Shiner Bock bottle
make me wanna turn the key and put down the throttle
and get lost down 35

When I get tied down by the ties that bind
seems like I’m never gonna find the time to do what I need
That’s to find me a place where I can think
talk about love, and laugh and drank
and there’s someone there who cares

Cause no matter how big the storms
I know I can find me a place that’s warm
the sun is shining somewhere in Texas
I hope its shinin’ on her
Somewhere down in Texas…

In a place that big a man could get lost
never mind the time, forget about the cost
there’s more important things

Shes smilin’ somewhere north of San Antone
and Ive got a number but I stare at the phone
cause I still want to believe

Cause no matter how big the storms
I know I can find me a place that’s warm
the sun is shining somewhere in Texas
I hope its shinin’ on her
Somewhere down in Texas…

To hell with horoscopes and empty dreams
to hell with Valentino and his cut off pair of jeans
cause I know I can make it there on a 12 pack and a prayer

Cause no matter how big the storms
I know I can find me a place that’s warm
the sun is shining somewhere in Texas
I hope its shinin’ on her
Somewhere down in Texas… Down in Texas…
