lifeblood: songs: lyrics: texas was clean


texas was clean
just an oilman's dream
a slate that i'd never written on
the dust blowing 'round
a lonely town
boots on the board of a barn
as far from the south
without getting out
oh
the corner of my heart

all this born
in the powder and the horn
the feather on the gridded green
the brown and the white
the rich and the poor
taking the hit for the team
and the horse they rode
was a merry soul
flickering
on my
best post at night

and hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
hey i wanna go
hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
i wanna go there
and hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
hey i wanna go
hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
i wanna go there
the horse they rode
was a merry soul

i knew you for a moment or two
in a life that seems to just expand
in the austin night
under vapor lights
you laughed at me
then you took me in
on the day
of the dead
in a circle we said
the names
oh
from the corner of our hearts

hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
hey i wanna go
hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
i wanna go there
and hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
hey i wanna go
hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
i wanna go there
oh i wanna go there
and hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
hey i wanna go
hey i wanna go
(it's just another place to go)
i wanna go there
as far from the south
without getting out
