Dallas

from the album A1A


Lyrics

If you ever get the chance to go to Dallas
Take it from me, pass it by
Cause you’ll only sing the blues down in Dallas
Take it from me, don’t go and cry

And I’m leaving this town as soon as I can
Gonna stop off for a while and see my woman

People do you wrong down in Dallas
I know well, they’ve done it to me
Stealin’ all your bread, they’re so callous
I know well, just look and see

And I’m leaving this town as soon as I can
Gonna stop off for a while and see my woman

And people like me just can’t be free
The promo man won’t let us us be
If the people who knew could get away
I’m real sure they’d leave today

Now come on down and lose your mental balance
Look at me, half crazy now
Talkin’ to chairs, strange and I know it
Look at me I’m doin’ it now

And I’m leaving this town as soon as I can
Gonna stop off for a while and see my woman

Yeah, said I’m leaving this town as soon as I can
Gonna stop off for a while and see my woman
