This is an adjustment I made to the posting already on cowpie by
I think Jason might change keys at the bridge, he just lost
me. Corrections or changes are welcome.

Intro: D G Em A (2x )
When I look south and see the storm clouds roll, on their way to old Mexico
I don't want to be alone
The rays of light through my Shiner Bock» bottle make
me wanna turn the key and put down the throttle and get lost down 35
When I get tied down by the ties that bind seems like I'm never gonna find
to do what I need.
That's to find me a place where I can think, talk about love, laugh, and
And there's someone there who cares.
Cause no matter how big the storms
I know I can find me a place that's warm.
A D G
The sun is shining somewhere in Texas;
Em A D G
I hope it's shining on her; Somewhere down in Texas.
In a place that big a man could get lost never mind the time forget about
There's more important things.
Shes' somewhere smiling north of San Anton', I've got her number but I stare
at the phone
Cause I still want to believe.
To hell with horoscopes and empty dreams
to hell with Valentino in his cut-off pair of jeans.
D G Em A
Cause I know I can make it there on a twelve pack and a prayer.
