Well, I’ve never been to Texas
But someday I’m gonna fly
Over the hills
Way down the trail
You can see a fire glowing
Wind in your hair
Riding the rails
You can hear the cattle lowing
And they’re talking just to you
In a voice that’s clear and true

Leave your other world behind
Ain’t nobody gonna mind at all
If you heed the prairie’s call
Just for a while
Pardner, walk a country mile
Breathe the air and feel your heartbeat slow
A place inside you barely know
Sings a ki-yi-yipee-yay-yay-yipee-yo
And I’ve never been to Texas

Yeah, I’ve never been to Texas
But I swear I’m gonna try
Crossing the plains
Fording the stream
Mountains up ahead now
Bearing the pain
Living the dream
Your other world is dead now
And at night the sky’s so wide
When you look up you look inside

And what you see
Is what you’ve always had to hide

Gather round the campfire, Son
Take a load off and lay down your gun
You’re not the only one who’s lived in fear
You think you’ve found your family here
But as you sing your sad old cowboy song
The wagon train moves on
With a ki-yi-yipee-yay-yay-yipee-yo
And I’ve never been to Texas

If you wish they still made albums like they did in the 1970s, you're gonna love the Sad Truth - a wry and tuneful mashup of Steely Dan, ELO, Supertramp, and every other band you love from Back In The Day.
