​Blue Bonnet Blues

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears…

Well, there's a special place in my memory
Where I keep the pictures of a time and place I left far behind
And I know the years have probably colored the way it really was back then
But still I like to take the memories out and look at 'em from time to time

There's a full moon tonight on the prairie
And a memory just rode into view
A boy, a buckskin, and an ole spangler dawg
In the hills where the blue bonnets grew

Well, I was deep in the heart of Texas
Just a kid 'bout thirteen at the time
Runnin' wild through the mesquite, the cedars and cactus
It's been years, but you're still on my mind

No matter where I may wander
There's a memeory that I'll never lose
The Lonestar shines bright in my heart tonight
I've got the blue bonnet blues

Well, I remember those warm summer evenings
Layin' out under the stars
Back then I never dreamed we'd be leavin'
But I guess things just don't stay as they are

Well, the years and the miles came between us
But tonight as I'm dreamin' of you
Once again, I'm a kid, in the sweet arms of Texas
And I've got the blue bonnet blues

No matter where I may wander
There's a memory that I'll never lose
The Lonestar shines bright in my heart tonight
I've got the blue bonnet blues
The Lonestar shines bright in my heart tonight
I've got the blue bonnet blues
