Orange Juice - The Day I Went Down To Texas lyrics

If you should change your mind
Please leave the key beneath the mat
And as for me I'm stepping
Out with these walls to a land that enthralls
A land where a man can realize his dreams
I took my place in a fast moving queue
Walked up the gangplank and winked at the crew
And now I'm bound for pastures new

Texas, down in Texas
Now I'm reelin' in the drunken sun
I jumped on the back of a Cadillac
I said I guess I'm a lucky son of a gun

You write occasionally
In such a perfunctory style
Despite myself I always
Smile while remembering our glorious past
I guess we both knew it was too good to last
I once wrote a song though the words didn't scan
You still insisted that you were a fan
But you were so much younger then

Texas, down in Texas
Now I'm reelin' in the drunken sun
I jumped on the back of a Cadillac
I said I guess I'm a lucky son of a gun

Texas, down in Texas
Now I'm reelin' in the drunken sun
I jumped on the back of a Cadillac
I said I guess I'm a lucky son of a gun
