Lyrics of Lone Star Blues

At a truck stop in San angelo
I saw a billboard bout this rodeo
Last weekend out in El Paso so I signed up to ride
I drew a bull called original Sin
Heard he'd killed a couple o' men
Figured this is somethin'
I could win 'cos the devil's on my side
I was a havin' myself one helluva ride when I ended up disqualified
'Cos that danged ol' bull just up and died before they blew the whistle
Well I got those north Texas blues thought I'd paid all my dues
An' them south Texas blues told me son you ain't thru
An' them east Texas blues and the west Texas too
I done all I know to do tryin' to lose
Tryin' to lose these
Lone Star blues
I got laid off at Brown and Root
On my way back to cuttin' shoot
I lost my wristwatch and my boots
Shootin' dice with a dude from Houston
They ain't no jobs here workin' cattle
So I got on part time haulin' brattle
With some outfit from Seattle down here buildin' custom homes
Well I got them north Texas blues thought I'd paid all my dues
An' them south Texas blues told me son you ain't thru
An' them east Texas blues and them west Texas too
I done all I know to do tryin' to lose
Tryin' to lose these
Lone Star blues alright
I gassed up my truck and I packed my clothes
Turned in my key an'
I hit the road
I said Cow Town's where I'll go you never know I might get lucky
I got a friend there turnin' knobs at this place called Billy Bob's
Said he could get me a job there workin' as a bouncer
First night on the job was just insane some ol' boy got all deranged
Hit me in the head with a Harley chain to this day my ears still ring
I got them north Texas blues thought I'd paid all my dues
An' them south Texas blues told me son you ain't thru
An' them east Texas blues and them west Texas too
I done all I know to do tryin' to lose
Tryin' to lose these
Lone Star blues
I done all I know to do tryin' to lose
Tryin' to lose these
Lone Star blues
