"The Only Reason [Snippet]" as written by Monty Powell, Mark Everett Prentice and Rockie Rash....
4:30 a.m. July 28
In the middle of a storm, never touchin' the brake
I drove like a bat outta hell
Down that lonely ol' four lane

With the bright lights of Houston just fadin' behind
My tires tearin' up the road toward the state line
I was leavin' the great Lone Star state
That I loved for good

For the love of a good woman who lives in Louisiana
On a bayou by the river with the moon in her hair
And when I get there, I'm gonna get down on one knee
'Cause wherever she is boy that's home for me
Don't get me wrong

Love's the only reason, I'd ever leave Texas
She's the only reason, I'd ever stay gone

Just about Baton Rouge, I was changin' my mind
Thinkin' 'bout all the things I'd be leavin' behind
Like a Red River sunrise
And the stars on a Galveston night

For the love of a good woman who lives in Louisiana
On a bayou by the river with the moon in her hair
And when I get there, I'm gonna get down on one knee
'Cause wherever she is boy that's home for me
Don't get me wrong

Love's the only reason, I'd ever leave Texas
An' she's the only reason, I'd ever stay gone

Like a long lonely night
Wonderin' where I'd spend the rest of my life
Gone like an old tumbleweed
Rollin' his way to a place he finally call home

For the love of a good woman who lives in Louisiana
On a bayou by the river with the moon in her hair
And when I get there, I'm gonna get down on one knee
'Cause wherever she is boy that's home for me
Don't get me wrong

Love's the only reason, I'd ever leave Texas
An' she's the only reason, I'd ever stay gone

Love's the only reason, I'd ever leave Texas
An' you're the only reason, I'd ever stay gone
