"Way Down Texas Way"
by GC SMITH

Billy Joe Shaver
sings about
wanderlust;
how a Gypsy
got a hold
on someone in
his family
long ago

Waylon and Willie
sing about a
good hearted
woman; hurtin'
'cause of
the antics
of her
good timin'
man

Davis Allen Coe
sings about
his love of
robbin' banks;
how he
always tells
the teller
thanks

They are
as American
as jazz
those
Texas Troubadours
singing their
down home
shit kickin'
good old boy
ballads

Me,
I try
singing
in the shower;
my sweetie inquires
as to whether or not
I may be choking
on something
I ate for breakfast
or if I'm
having a heart attack
