Rockabilly Blues (Texas 1955) - Johnny Cash

Rockabilly Blues (Texas 1955)

Johnny Cash

(J.R. Cash, CBS, 1980)

I took a tour to Texas
And from Waco I called you
But day by day no answer
And I'm Big Bluebonnet blue
I'm singing and they're dancing
But I'm feeling Big D bad
I'm Sweetwater beat
And I'm Texas City sad

[Chorus]
The rhythm keeps me living
But have you heard the news
There's a sad song singer coming
With the rockabilly blues

It's hard to keep on singing
When you're lonesome to the bone
10,000 happy people but I'm San Antone alone
One night stands and the man demands
That I get up and go
I'm Odessa desperate
And San Angelo low

[Chorus]

It's the same old tune in Temple
About the loving I ain't had
I'm getting Beaumont bitter
And Amarillo mad
I'm giving up on calling you
'Cause you're evading me
I'm coming home and if you're gone
I'm gonna be Tennessee free

[Chorus]
