​Lone Star State of Mind

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album Currents (1992).

(Patrick Alger / Gene Levine / Fred Koller)

Your phone call took me by surprise
Gee, it's been a long, long time
Since those hot and humid Texas nights
We went swimmin' in the tide
Corpus Cristi seems so far away
And I'm not talkin' 'bout the miles
There ain't much I wouldn't give today
Just to see one of your smiles.

But I'm stuck here in Denver
Sippin' California wine
And I've got all night to remember you
I'm in a lone star state of mind.

I just saw John Wayne on the late, late show
He saved the girl and rode away
But I was hopin' as the credits rolled
He'd make it back to her some day.

'Cause, I'm stuck here in Denver
Sippin' California wine
And I've got all night to remember you
I'm in a lone star state of mind.

It's a thousand miles or more
From here to your front door
Oh, I'd be there tomorrow if I had my way
Well, I'd jus' pack up my guitar
You know its really not that far
And when you called you said
I'd have a place to stay.

But I'm stuck here in Denver
Sippin' California wine
And I've got all night to remember you
I'm in a lone star state of mind.

I've got all night to remember you
I'm in a lone star state of mind...
