Ah, what's the matter now
Tell me, mama, what's the matter now
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

When you see me comin', don't call my name
When you see me comin', don't call my name
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

Ooh, what's the matter now
Ain't nothin' the matter (Spoken)
Please tell me, what's the matter now
Tell you, wasn't nothin' the matter
I'm goin' back to Texas sit on easy street

Ooh, what's the matter now
Tell me, mama, what's the matter now
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

When you see me comin', heist your window high
When you see me comin', heist your window high
Well, I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

Ooh, what's the matter now
Please tell me, what's the matter now
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

Got the Texas blues, blue as I can be
Got the Texas blues, blue as I can be
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

Ooh, what's the matter now
Tell me, mama, what's the matter now
Got a black mule, baby, kickin' in my stall

Ooh, what's the matter now
Ooh, what's the matter now
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street

When you see me runnin', something goin' on wrong
When you see me runnin', something goin' on wrong
I'm goin' back to Texas, sit on easy street
