Don’t Mess With The Girl From Texas

2016

Had a wild night in Waco
With a brown eyed girl from Abilene
She was dancing to some Tony Joe
Shaking like a tambourine
So you think you might get lucky boy
By the look way she looks you in the eye
But if you think you got her under your control
Man you don’t know rock n roll

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and round

She got sunshine in her eyes
She got full moons every night
Whiskey drinking start a fight
Ain’t no preacher set her right

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and roun

She got green grass growing high
Cotton fields and lullabies
Country strong and city wise
Honky tonks and starry skies

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and roun

She got oil men back at home
Making dates down in San Antone
Send you packing for the railroad
She gonna ditch ya at the Alamo

Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She don’t play when the sun goes down
Don’t mess with the girl from Texas
She got your head spinning round and round
