Countdown to Texas

    Four days to Texas
    Amarillo bound
    Can’t wait to see my baby
    When I hit that dusty ground.

    Goin’ home, after years gone by
    Goin’ home, tryin’ not to cry
    Tears of joy and happiness
    When my baby’s by my side.
    Goin’ home.

    Three days to Texas
    I can feel it drawing near
    Like a hot blast of air
    And a cold Budweiser beer.

    Goin’ home, after years gone by
    Goin’ home, tryin’ not to cry
    Tears of joy and happiness
    When my baby’s by my side.
    Goin’ home.

    Two more days to Texas
    Amarillo here I come
    Where the air smells of cattle
    And cowboys get work done.

    Goin’ home, after years gone by
    Goin’ home, tryin’ not to cry
    Tears of joy and happiness
    When my baby’s by my side.
    Goin’ home.

    One last day to Texas
    Back to my country roots
    I’ll put aside my flip flops
    And don my old black boots.

    Goin’ home, after years gone by
    Goin’ home, tryin’ not to cry
    Tears of joy and happiness
    When my baby’s by my side.
    Goin’ home.

    And now the wheels are touching
    a runway on the plains
    broad prairie sweeps around me
    It’s different, but the same.

    I’m home, after years gone by
    I’m home, tears start to fall
    In my baby’s arms I’ve finally found
    My home.
