Amarillo by Morning
Amarillo by mornin'
Up from San Antone
Everything that I've got
Is just what I've got on
Oh, when the sun is high
In that Texas sky
I'll be buckin' at the country fair
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo, I'll be there

They took my saddle in Houston
Broke my leg in Santa Fe
I lost me a wife and a girlfriend
Somewhere along the way
But I'll be looking for aid
When they pull that gate
And I hope the judge ain't blind
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo on my mind

Amarillo by morning
Up from San Antone
Everything that I've got
Is just what I've got on
I ain't got a dime
But what I've got is mine
I ain't rich, but, Lord, I'm free
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo's where I'll be
Amarillo by morning
Amarillo's where I'll be
