"Beaumont" as written by and Hayes Carll....
I saw you leanin' on a memory
With your back turned to the crowd
In that little bar on Murphy
Where they play guitar too loud
There were people drinkin' whiskey
There were hearts about to leave
It was cold as hell for Houston
It was almost New Year's Eve

All the way from Beaumont
With a white rose in my hand
I could not wait forever babe,
I hope you understand

The night was feelin' lucky
So I asked you to dance
And the way you looked up at me
Made me think I had a chance
When I put my arms around you
I knew you weren't givin' in
I hope it will be different if I pass this way again
All the way from Beaumont, with a white rose in my hand
I could not wait forever babe,
I hope you understand

I walked the road to get here
With a guitar and a case
I'd stopped in Pasadena
If I'd known about this place
But you looked like forever
Where the water meets the shore
I've been thinkin' about you, baby
I can't do that anymore

I saw you leanin' on a memory
With your back turned to the crowd
In that little bar on Murphy
Where they play guitar too loud
There were people drinkin' whiskey
There were hearts about to leave
It was cold as hell for Houston
It was almost New Year's Eve

[Repeat: x2]
All the way from Beaumont
With a white rose in my hand
I could not wait forever babe,
I hope you understand
