We played this club in Richmond
And we rocked the joint all night
I was feelin' kinda cocky
He took some time to set me right
He said I see you've got some mileage
I can see you've paid some dues
But if you haven't played in Texas
You haven't played the blues

So we shared a round of whiskey
As the bar was closin' down
He spoke to me of Dallas
And described Deep Ellum's sound
I listened to his reasons
And I heard the ring of truth
(when he said) If you haven't played in Texas
You haven't played the blues

So I changed my way of thinkin'
Convinced the band to make the rounds
Houston, Austin Fort Worth, Dallas
Learned to play that Lone Star sound
And that night in Amarillo
Where the harp man called the tunes
'Cause if you haven't played in Texas
You haven't played the blues
