By Ernest Tubbs
and also sung by Hank Williams Sr and Merle Haggard.
I'm not sure if they are the exact words...or if i'm writing them
I'm on my way to Italy from the golf of Mexico
Riding on a tanker, and feeling mighty low
My good gals behind me, no lovin' for so long
I'm going back to Texas, cause that's where i belong
Nights are so lonely on the ocean
There's to much time to dream of yesterday
If i could only carry out my notion
Id hit the trail for Texas right away
I never thaut when I was leavin'
I could get so blue out on the sea
But i'll bet you after all this greevin'
It's that good ol Texas soil for me
P.S.:Personnaly I like it better by Hank Williams Sr
