The Only Reason

This song is by Rockie Lynne and appears on the album Rockie Lynne (2006) and on the live album The Dam Show (2010).

Four-thirty a.m., July 28,
In the middle of a storm, never touching the brake,
I drove like a bat outta hell,
Down that lonely ol' four-lane.

With the bright lights of Houston just fadin' behind,
My tires tearin' up the road t'ward the state-line.
I was leavin' the great Lone Star state,
That I loved, for good.

For the love of a good woman who lives in Louisiana,
On a bayou by the river with the moon in her hair.
And when I get there, I'm gonna get down on one knee,
'Cause wherever she is, boy, that's home for me.
Don't get me wrong:
Love's the only reason I'd ever leave Texas;
She's the only reason I'd ever stay gone.

Just about Baton Rouge, I was changin' my mind,
Thinkin' 'bout all the things I'd be leavin' behind.
Like a Red River sunrise,
And the stars on a Galveston night.

For the love of a good woman who lives in Louisiana,
On a bayou by the river with the moon in her hair.
And when I get there, I'm gonna get down on one knee,
'Cause wherever she is, boy, that's home for me.
Don't get me wrong:
Love's the only reason I'd ever leave Texas;
An' she's the only reason I'd ever stay gone.

Like a long lonely night,
Wonderin' where I'd spend the rest of my life.
Gone, like an old tumbleweed,
Rollin' his way a place he can't find to call home.

For the love of a good woman who lives in Louisiana,
On a bayou by the river with the moon in her hair.
And when I get there, I'm gonna get down on one knee,
'Cause wherever she is, boy, that's home for me.
Don't get me wrong:
Love's the only reason I'd ever leave Texas;
An' she's the only reason I'd ever stay gone.

Love's the only reason I'd ever leave Texas;
An' you're the only reason I'd ever stay gone.
