East Texas Blues

This song is by Dave Alvin and appears on the album King of California (1994).

Well I met a woman in East Texas
She'd been left by herself alone
Well I met a woman in East Texas
She'd been left by herself alone
And I was stranded out in the country where
I was barely known

She fell for me a lonesome stranger
Standing in the drizzling rain
She fell for me a lonesome stranger
Standing in the drizzling rain
She said you can stay with me baby
Though I don't even know your name

Just don't tell me you love me
Cause to tell a lie is a sin
Just don't tell me you love me
Cause to tell a lie is a sin
But please lay down beside me honey
Cause tonight I need a friend

She said I care for you daddy
But I don't love no man more than myself
She said I care for you daddy
But I don't love no man more than myself
But I got a mind to care
And a heart to love just like anyone else

Well the wolves howl till midnight
And the wild dogs moan for days
Yeah the wolves howl till midnight
And the wild dogs moan for days
The man in the moon looked down on us
But he didn't have a thing to say
