I'm a high straight in Plainview
Side bet in Idalou
An a fresh deck in New Deal
Some call me high hand
An some call me low hand
But I'm holdin' what I amå±he Wheel
I'm panhandlin
Man handlin
Post holin
High rollin'
Dust Bowlinåaddy
An I ain't got no blood veins
I just got them four lanes
Of hardå'marillo Highway
I don't wear no Stetson
But I'm willin' to bet son
That I'm a big a Texan as you are
There's a girl in her barefeet
'Sleep on the back seat
An that trunk is full of Pearlånd Lone Star
Gonna hop outta bed
Pop a pill in my head
Yeah, bust the Hub for the Golden Spread
Under blue skies
Gonna stuff my hide
Behind some power glide
An get some southern friedåack in my eyes
An close I'll ever get to heaven
Is makin' speed up ol' 87
Of that hard-asså'marillo Highway
