All my ex’s live in Texas
And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to be
But all my ex’s live in Texas
And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
Rosanna’s down in Texarcana wanted me to push her broom
And sweet Arlene in Abilene she forgot I owned the moon
And Allison in Galviston somehow lost her sanity
And Dimples who now lives in Temple’s got the law looking for me.
I remember that old Rio river where I learned to swim
But it brings to mind another time when I wore my welcome thin
My transcendental meditation I go there each night
But I’ll always come back to myself long before daylight.
Some folks think I’m hiding
it’s been rumored that I died
But I’m alive and well in Tennessee.
