George Strait Lonsome Rodeo Cowboy

I own this horse and saddle

And that old Cadillac

This broken down horse trailer

And the clothes that are on my back

Well I know that it ain’t a hell of alot

But it’s all that I can show

My wife left me five years ago

In one of those rodeo towns

I can’t say that I blame her much

She just wanted to settle down

Oh God how I miss that woman

It hurt so to see her go

If I was smart I woulda stuck by her

But I’m hooked on this rodeo

[Chorus:]

And I’m just a Lonesome Cowboy

I’m a little bit over the hill

I shoulda quit this thing a long time ago

But I guess I never will

So I keep on movin from show to show

Hopin to change my luck

My good ol days are just a memory

But I just can’t give it up

There was a time I used to do alright

And bring home my share of the dough

But now I’m losin out to the younger boys

I guess I must be gettin slow

But there’s one thing you learn from this

You gotta make it on your own

Cause when your on top you’ve got a million friends

But when your down buddy you’re all alone

[Chorus]

My good ol days are just a memory

But I just can’t give it up

George Strait It Just Comes Natural

Sun shines, clouds rain

Train whistles blow and guitars play

Preachers preach, farmers plow

Wishes go up and the world goes round

And I love you, it just comes natural

It just comes natural

Seasons change rivers wind

Tumble weeds roll and the stars shine

Wind howls, dawn breaks

Cowboys riding’ time slips away

And I love you, it just comes natural

It’s what I was born to do

Don’t have to think it through

Baby, it’s so easy loving you

It just comes natural

It’s what I was born to do

Don’t have to think it through

Baby it’s so easy loving you

Fire burns waves crash

Seeds grow and good things last

Ships sail dreams fly

Night falls and full moons rise

And I love you, it just comes natural

And I love you, it just comes natural

It just comes natural

It just comes natural

George Strait Deep Water

I’m drifting into deep water,

I’m starting to care for you.

You’re gettin’ me in deep water,

Be careful what you do.

You want a romance, but I’m seeking love.

I know I’ll regret it when it ends.

I’m winding up in deep water.

Why can’t we just be friends?

There’s restless and there’s deep water.

I’m lost between right and wrong.

My love is true as deep water.

Your love won’t last as long.

Where will it lead me and where will it end?

I can’t help but wish I only knew.

I’m winding up in deep water.

So deep in love with you.

George Strait The Cowboy Rides Away

I knew the stakes were high right from the start.

When she dealt the cards, I bet my heart.

Now I just found a game that I can’t play,

And this is where the cowboy rides away.

[Chorus:]

And my heart is sinking like the setting sun,

Setting on the things I wish I’d done.

It’s time to say goodbye to yesterday.

This is where the cowboy rides away.

We’ve been in and out of love and in-between.

And now we play the final showdown scene.

As the credits roll a sad song starts to play,

And this is where the cowboy rides away.

[Chorus:]

And my heart is sinking like a setting sun,

Setting on the things I wish I’d done.

Oh the last goodbye’s the hardest one to say,

And this is where the cowboy rides away.

Oh the last goodbye’s the hardest one to say.

This is where the cowboy rides away.

George Strait Thoughts Of A Fool

I had a love and it was all mine

I drove her out, I must’ve been blind

That’s the thoughts of a fool thinking out loud

She loved me so, but I was untrue

She’s gone for good, what can I do

That’s the thoughts of a fool thinking out loud

There’s not a thing that I can say about her

Except I don’t know how I’m going to live without her

I had a love and it was all mine

I watched it fade a kiss at a time

That’s the thoughts of a fool thinking out loud

That’s the thoughts of a fool thinking out loud

George Strait Honkytonkville

Thought I’d go crazy when you said goodbye

I didn’t have that far to go

But I made a wrong turn somewhere in the night

Down a long and lonely road

[Chorus:]

To Honkytonkville, an ideal

Home away from home sweet home

Honkytonkville where I don’t feel

A thing since you’ve been gone

Where the future’s always bright

In the glow of neon lights

Livin’ high on Barstool Hill in Honkytonkville

There’s friendly faces everywhere I turn

Droppin’ quarters in the slot

Lord knows that we’ve all got memories to burn

And that’s why that jukebox plays around the clock

[Chorus]

Livin’ high on Barstool Hill in Honkytonkville

George Strait 80 Proof Bottle Of Tear Stopper

You ain’t never fell as far as when you fall in love

Except the fall you take when you’ve been loved and given up

When you have your heart and soul rubbed into the dirt

An 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper will take away the hurt

[Chorus:]

Give me an 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper

And I’ll start feeling I forgot her

Get a little loose and lose her memory

And I won’t think I’m close to dying

Because it dries up all my crying

An 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper always sets me free

It ain’t easy losing love although it’s turned out bad

All at once you’re turning off old feelings you once had

But I found a helping hand right here in my hand

An 80-proof bottle of tear-stopper will help me take command

[Chorus]

George Strait She Knows When You’re On My Mind

She knows she’s holdin’ someone who don’t love her

She knows she’s where you could have been

She knows I turn to her because you turned me down

And she knows when you’re on my mind again

Every night she opens up the door to heaven

But when you’re on my mind I can’t go in

And you come runnin’ through my mind and I let my memory chase you

She knows when you’re on my mind again

Sometimes late at night I hear her crying

She turns to me but you won’t let her in

She knows the door is locked but she keeps trying

She knows when you’re on my mind again

Every night she opens up the door to heaven

But when you’re on my mind I can’t go in

And you come runnin’ through my mind and I let my memory chase you

She knows when you’re on my mind again

George Strait All My Ex’s Live In Texas

[Chorus:]

All my ex’s live in Texas

And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to be

But all my ex’s live in Texas

And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee

Rosanna’s down in Texarkana

Wanted me to push her broom

Sweet Eileen’s in Abilene

She forgot I hung the moon

And Allison’s in Galveston

Somehow lost her sanity

And Dimples who now lives in Temple’s

Got the law looking for me

[Chorus:]

All my ex’s live in Texas

And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to be

But all my ex’s live in Texas

And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee

I remember that old Frio River

Where I learned to swim

But it brings to mind another time

Where I wore my welcome thin

By transcendental meditation

I go there each night

But I always come back to myself

Long before daylight

[Chorus:]

All my ex’s live in Texas

And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to be

But all my ex’s live in Texas

And therefor I reside in Tennessee

[Bridge]

Some folks think I’m hiding

It’s been rumored that I died

But I’m alive and well in Tennessee

George Strait Heartbroke

Now who wouldn’t notice the fire in your eyes

Or the bitter direction of impending good-byes

I’ve followed and folded, I’m wilted in place

At the sight of you standing with streaks down your face

With your heart broke and running from the reason

You got your heart broke, don’t give up on believing in me

Heart broke, who kept me from leaving?

With my heart broke

Now pride is a drag and a bore when you’re lonely

Sheer madness prevails upon reason to you

But all is not lost, it’s only mistaken

That’s small consolation but I know just how you feel

With your heart broke and running from the reason

You got your heart broke, don’t give up on believing in me

Heart broke , who kept me from leaving?

With my heart broke

Nobody said it was going to be easy

We all have feelings that need a softer touch

But nobody said that it would not be worth it

The human condition continues as such

With your heart broke and running from the reason

You’ve got your heart broke, don’t give up on believing in me

Heart broke, who kept me from leaving?

With my heart broke, you’ve got me heart broke
