"Texas Tears" lyrics - TERRY ALLEN

"Texas Tears"

I been wrong for so long
Accusing you of wrongness
But tonight... you broke
And you made me right
'Cause I just saw you inside
This Texas tavern
By his side... smiling smiles
I never seen
So I just straightened up
And walked in on that bar room
Just as you reached out and kissed
His curling mouth
But when you saw me your eyes died
Somewhere deep inside you
It tore me down... I turned around
And ran back on out

With Texas tears failing down
Washing my life right out on the ground
Texas tears they're falling down
Running out... on you running around

I went home all alone
Sit down by the telephone
When it rang... I knew it was you
Was on the line
You said
"Baby, please don't mistake
What you seen for a backstreet date
Now... I was just havin' a drink
With a friend of mine"
I said
"Damn you... you lyin' Texas woman
You got the lips of an angel
But the devil, he's suckin your tongue
Yeah damn you... you lyin' Texas woman
Me an you an that devil too
Just done had our run"
