Bayou City
 

itís a beautiful morning in the month of May
got the radio blaring in my Chevrolet
olí Waylon singing somethiní Ďbout a honky-tonk dive
bluebonnets guide my way down I-45

iím heading back down to the bayou city
where thereís ice cold beer and red hot ladies
itís the only place i could ever call home
and thereís a sweet Texas girl been sleepiní alone

i up and joined the service several years ago
they asked for volunteers and i was proud to go
iíve seen a little action in the old mid-east
but the ribbons on my chest make poor company

Dallas, Huntsville, Conroe town
Houston city limitís just another exit down
i knock on the door, she opens it wide
wraps me in her arms and man she holds me so tight

iím finally back home in the bayou city
itís feeling so right and sheís looking so pretty
itís the only place I could ever call home
and thereís a sweet Texas girl wonít be sleepiní alone

itís beautiful morning in the month of May
got the radio blaring in my Chevrolet
Willie Nelson singing something about love alive
heading down to Corpus with my brand new bride

Toulon, France Ď89
