George Strait My Heart Won’t Wander Very Far From You

Well honey don’t you worry I don’t need no barroom queens.

Well I admit she sure knows how to fill a pair of jeans.

And I’ll admit now darling she sure is showing me her stuff,

But honey it ain’t nearly enough.

[Chorus:]

‘Cause I ain’t never seen her patch a pair of ragged britches,

Stretch a paycheck till it reaches, scratch my back right where it itches.

And I ain’t never seen that and honey till I do

My heart won’t wander very far from you.

Now honey you know I honor all the hard times we’ve been through.

I never could’ve made it with anyone but you.

And I think I know when a lady is really really tough,

But she don’t show me nearly enough.

[Chorus:]

‘Cause I ain’t never seen her stay up all night with a baby,

Calm me down when I get crazy, fix me grits and red-hot gravy.

I ain’t never seen that and honey till I do

My heart won’t wander very far from you.

No I ain’t never seen her make a six- room house a castle,

Teach the young one how to wrestle, straighten out my fishing tackle.

And I ain’t never seen that and honey till I do my heart won’t wander very far from you.

George Strait Home In San Antone

Haven’t got a worry

Haven’t got a care

I haven’t got a thing to call my own

Though I’m out of money

I’m a millionaire

I still have my home in San Antone

When I greet my neighbor with a “hi y’all”

I’m wealthy as a king upon a throne

You can have your mansion or your cottage small

I’ll just take my home in San Antone

Traveling around the country

On my merry way

I’ve been to crowds and felt I was alone

But when I feel like braggin’

I just up and say

I’m a native son of San Antone

There’s a sweet somebody by the Alamo

Someday she’s going to be my very own

And we’ll buy a high chair in a year or so

For our little home in San Antone

George Strait I Can Still Make Cheyenne

Her telephone rang ’bout a quarter to nine

She heard his voice on the other end of the line

She wondered what was wrong this time

She never knew what his calls might bring

With a cowboy like him it could be anything

And she always expected the worst in the back of her mind.

He said, “It’s cold out here and I’m all alone

I didn’t make the short go again and I’m coming home

I know I’ve been away too long

I never got a chance to write or call

And I know this rodeo has been hard on us all

But I’ll be home soon and honey is there something wrong?”

[Chorus:]

She said, “Don’t bother comin’ home

By the time you get here I’ll be long gone

There’s somebody new and he sure ain’t no rodeo man”

He said, “I’m sorry it’s come down to this

There’s so much about you that I’m gonna miss

But it’s alright baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne

Gotta go now baby, if I hurry I can still make Cheyenne

He left that phone danglin’ off the hook

Then slowly turned around and gave it one last look

Then he just walked away

He aimed his truck toward that Wyoming line

With a little luck he could still get there in time

And in that Cheyenne wind he could still hear her say

[Chorus]

She never knew what his calls might bring

With a cowboy like him it could be anything

And she always expected the worst in the back of her mind

George Strait Hot Grease And Zydeco

I hear the music big daddy’s place

Smell that gumbo coming through that ole screen door

Fans a blowing, flys a buzzing, people jitter bugging on that hardwood floor

Worked my fingers down to the bone

make the money and spend it on

Hot grease and zydeco

Feed my belly feed my hungry soul it’s friday night let the good times roll

Hot grease and zydeco

My babys loving is deep fried

Golden brown legs and that long black hair

We start cooking when we kiss, no time at all lord she takes me there

head on the bayou they stirring it up, tastes so good I cant get enough

Hot grease and zydeco

Feed my belly feed my hungry soul it’s friday night let the good times roll

Hot grease

Hot grease and zydeco

hot grease and zydeco

Feed my belly feed my hungry soul it’s friday night let the good times roll

Hot grease and zydeco

Feed my belly feed my hungry soul Turn it up burn it up say sho

Hot grease

Hot grease and zydeco

George Strait Lefty’s Gone

A jukebox introduced us when the 60’s was still young,

If you got the money

Honey got my nickels one by one,

I tried to imitate that song, it’s not right but Lefty’s gone,

And always late breaks my heart and every song he sang I played the part,

I heard he was sad and lived alone,

It’s not right but Lefty’s gone,

He played the fair in Dallas one year

In the cold October rain,

Some folks stayed home in one

But he sang just the same,

I caught a chill before I got home,

It’s not right but Lefty’s gone,

I heard he was sad and lived alone,

It’s not right but Lefty’s gone,

It don’t seem like he was around that long,

It’s not right but Lefty’s gone.

George Strait I Ain’t Her Cowboy Anymore

I pack up my saddle

Throw it in that two-horse trailer

Back up my truck, hook ’em up

And drive away

Won’t be the first time

But this time’s the last time

She meant it when she said

That’s all I’ve got to say

Never had been thrown like this before

I ain’t her cowboy anymore

Never say it comin’

But I knew where it was goin’

When she asked how long this time

Before I hit the road

She didn’t come right out and say it

But I sure got the message

When I reached out to hold her

That shoulder sure was cold

Figured I’d just let goodbye run its course

I ain’t her cowboy anymore

[Chorus:]

These white lines are a blur

Like the last few nights I spent with her

I don’t know where I went wrong

Or if I did

Like the good ol’ boy I am

I told her that I understand

But Lord knows that I won’t

We met in Denver

Settled down in Dallas

The best days of my life

Were the ones I spent with her

You’d think that all that lovin’ ought to count for something

Guess I wore out my welcome

Like the rowels of these old spurs

That Casper sunset’s what I’m shootin’ for

‘Cause I ain’t her cowboy anymore

[Chorus]

Her cowboy anymore

I ain’t her cowboy anymore

George Strait Rockin’ In The Arms Of Your Memory

The first time I saw you

You were waitin’ tables at the corner diner

I said to myself

Never seen a woman look any finer

From that moment on

I was stone cold gone

You would be forever in my mind

Now somewhere in the neon lights

I’m holdin’ on for dear life

Rockin’ in the arms of your memory tonight

It was San Francisco

Silly sutis and white ties by the bay

You appeared with your papa

Tears were rolin’ down your mother’s face

Everyone was happy

Showered by well wishers as we drove away

Now somewhere in the neon lights

I’m holdin’ on for dear life

Rockin’ in the arms of your memory tonight

I’m living but dying

I’m laughing but crying

Somebody tell me it will be alright

I bought it for your birthday

God you looked so lovely in that dress

I took you to a party

Or was it to a night club I forget

Been twenty years and counting

I’m drowning in your love a little more each day

Now somewhere in the neon lights

I’m holdin’ on for dear life

Rockin’ in the arms of your memory tonight

Now somewhere in the neon lights

I’m holdin’ on for dear life

Rockin’ in the arms of your memory tonight

George Strait I’ll Always Be Loving You

You can turn me loose, tear me up and run me down

Cause me shame, drag my name all over town

Makes no difference what you say or what you do

As for me I’ll always be lovin’ you

[Chorus:]

My love for you was not built on shifting sands

I made a promise long ago and it still stands

Go on and do what your heart tells you to

As for me I’ll always be lovin’ you

You can change your dreams, change your heart

Or change your mind

And just pretend that it all ends with your goodbye

You can walk out and forget the love we knew

As for me I’ll always be lovin’ you

George Strait Friday Night Fever

I love the sound of a jukebox playing,

So I sit here while she’s staying home watching Dallas on TV

I love the taste of whiskey straight,

But the strongest thing she ever takes is a sip from a small glass of Chablis.

Though birds of a different feather, our love keeps us together,

And she knows what’s wrong with me tonight,

[Chorus:]

I’ve got that Friday night fever;

Sometimes a man just needs a breather.

She knows I love her and I need her.

And I’m no cheater,

I’ve just got that Friday night fever.

She wouldn’t change me if she could, so I wouldn’t change her, she’s too good.

Sometimes a man just needs a change of pace.

I’ve heard all those come-on lines, but I go home at closing time.

I know no one could ever take her place

Now she’s taking down her hair, she knows I’ll soon be there

To give her the love she needs tonight.

[Chorus]

I got that Friday night fever.

George Strait You’re Stronger Than Me

If you are sincere when you say you don’t care that we should just let the past be,

If the love that we knew don’t bother you, darlin’ you’re stronger than me.

[Chorus:]

And if still loving you means I’m weak, then I’m weak,

And I still fall apart when you speak or we meet.

If the love that we knew don’t bother you, darlin’ you’re stronger than me.

If you can have fun with some other one with no thought of what used to be,

If it’s easy to say that it’s better this way, darlin’ you’re stronger than me.

[Chorus]

Darlin’ you’re stronger than me.
