George Strait

"Lone Star Blues"

[Verse 1]
At a truck stop in San Angelo
I saw a billboard about this rodeo
This weekend out in El Paso
So I signed up to ride

[Verse 2]
I drew a bull called Original Sin
I heard he'd killed a couple of men
Thinking this was something I could win
Cause the devil was on my side

[Verse 3]
I was having myself one hell of a ride
But I ended up disqualified
That danged old bull just up and died
Before they blew the whistle

[Chorus]
With them north Texas blues
Thought I'd paid all my dues
Then them south Texas blues
Told me son you ain't through
Had the east Texas blues
And the west Texas too
I've done all I know to do
Trying to lose, trying to lose
These old lone star blues

[Verse 4]
Well I got laid off at Brown & Root
Then on my way back to Cut and Shoot
I lost my wristwatch and my boots
Shooting dice with a dude from Houston

[Verse 5]
Well there ain't no jobs here working cattle
So I got on part time hauling gravel
With some outfit from Seattle
Down here building custom homes

[Chorus]

[Verse 6]
Well I gassed my truck and I packed my clothes
Turned in the key and hit the road
I said Cowtown's where I'll go
You never know I might get lucky

[Verse 7]
Well I got a friend there turning knobs
At a place called Billy Bob's
Said he could get me a job there
Working as a bouncer

[Verse 8]
First night on the job was just insane
Some ole boy got all deranged
Hit me in the head with a Harley chain
To this day, my ears still ring

[Chorus]

[Outro]
I've done all I know to do
Trying to lose, trying to lose
These old lone star blues
