tommy's goin' home to texas

Tommy's goin' home

to texas

he's packed up

his steel guitar

and he's good to go

he's leaving behind

an empty bottle of wine

an ex-girlfriend

a couple goats

and his traincar studio

He told me that we

were gonna own this town

gonna bring those

Music Row whores

to their knees

he blew in bold

as a Texas Tornado

but he stole away

as soft and smooth

as a summer breeze

And I don't think he'll be coming back

anytime soon

far as I can see

Tommy's goin' home to Texas

says he's gonna own the whole damn state

gonna miss the traincar

gonna miss

Sneaky and Garth

but most of all I'm gonna miss the music that we might have made

And I don't think he'll be coming back

anytime soon

back this way
