TEXAS TRILOGY (Steven Fromholz)
Performed by Lyle Lovett on "Step Inside this House"
Submitted by Mark Albert


Dm Em F Em Dm G A repeat

Dm           Em
Six o'clock silence,
     F            Em
Of a new day beginning
Dm              G           A
Is heard in the small Texas town
Dm                 Em
Like a signal from nowhere
    F          Em
The people who live there
Dm                  G       A
Are up and they're moving around
'Cause there's bacon to fry
And there's biscuits to bake
D7                               G7
On the stove that the Salvation Army won't take
And you open the windows
And you turn on the fan
            A           A/G
'Cause it's hotter than hell
         A/F          A/E
When the sun hits the land

Walter and Fanny
Well they own the grocery
That sells most of all that you need
They've been up and working
Since early this morning
They've got the whole village to feed
They put out fresh eggs
Throw bad ones away
That rotted because
Of the heat yesterday
The store's all dark
So you can't see the flies
That settle on round steak
And last Monday's pies

Sleepy Hill's Drugstore
And the cafe they're open
The coffee is bubbling hot
And all the folks that ain't working
Gonna sit there 'till sundown
And talk about what they ain't got
Someone just threw a clutch
In the old pickup truck
It seems like they been riding
On a streak of bad luck
The doctors bills came
And the well has gone dry
Seems their grown kids don't care
Whether they live or die

Well, the last time I remember
That train stoppin at the depot
Was when me and my Aunt Veta
Came riding back from Waco
I remember I was wearing
My long pants and we was sharing
Conversation with a man
Who sold ball-point pens and paper
         F                     C
And the train stopped once in Clifton
Where my Aunt bought me some ice cream
        F               C
And my Mom was there to meet us
When the train pulled into Kopperl

        F       C           G
But now kids at night break window lights
        F        C        G
And the sound of trains only remains
        F      C     G
In the memory of the ones like me
          F           C            G
Who have turned their backs on the splintered cracks
        F         C            G
In the walls that stand on the railroad land
         F       C             G
Where we used to play and then run away
From the depot man

I remember me and brother
Used to run down to the depot
Just to listen to the whistle blow
When the train pulled into Kopperl
And the engine's big and shiny
Black as coal that fed the fire
And the engineer he'd smile and say,
"Howdy, how you fellows?"
And the people by the windows
Playing cards and reading papers
Seemed as far away to us
As next summer's school vacation

      C            F
Mary Martin was a schoolgirl
       G          C
Just seventeen or so
C                      F
When she married Billy Archer
      D              G
About fourteen years ago
    F           G
Not even out of high school
      C                F         
Folks said it wouldn't last
But when you grow up in the country
You grow up mighty fast
     C            F
They married in a hurry
    G                      C
In March before school was out
      C                 F
Folks said that she was pregnant,
      D                    G
"Just wait and you'll find out."
    F               G
It came about that winter
     C            F
One gray November morn
The first of many more to come
   G           C
A baby boy was born

And cattle is their game
And Archer is the name
     D                           G
They give to the acres that they own
       F                 G
If the Brazos don't run dry
        C                         F
And the newborn calves they don't die
 C                               Am
Another year from Mary will have flown
C                  G              C
Another year from Mary will have flown

Now Billy kept what cattle
His daddy could afford
As he went bouncing across the cactus
In a 1950 Ford
But the cows were sick and skinny
And the weeds was all that grew
But Billy kept the place alive
The only thing he knew
And Mary cooked the supper
And Mary scrubbed the clothes
And Mary busted horses
And blew the baby's nose
And Mary and a shotgun
Kept the rattlesnakes away
And how she kept on smiling
No one could ever say


Now the drought of '57
Was a curse upon the land
No one in Bosque County
Could give ol' Bill a helping hand
The ground was cracked and broken
And the truck was out of gas
And cows can't feed on prickly pear
Instead of growing grass
Well the weather got the water
And a snake bite took a child
And a fire in the old barn
Took the hay that Bill had piled
The mortgage got the money
And the screw worm got the cows
The years have come for Mary
She's waiting for them now
