"Texas & Tennessee" as written by and Benjamin Nichols....
It was Texas it was Tennessee
It was what I had comin' to me
You were unlike anything before
Black magic devil killer, I was yours

It was the early days of rock 'n roll
It was Otis, it was Memphis soul
It was a plane crash, it was overnight
It was burnin' fast and burnin' bright

Baby don't you talk no more
That look is loud enough
You don't have to tell me how
It feels not to be in love
You see that was my oldest game
Darlin' it was my claim to fame
And I knew it when I met you, all that you would need is more than what I got
Oh so baby please just stop

It was Texas it was Tennessee
It was exes and some wannabes
It was reckless, it was understood
It didn't matter cause it felt so good

And I'll still be here if you change your mind
But I can feel the leaving in your eyes
Don't want to hear it cause I know it well
I've said it all before to someone else

Baby don't you talk no more
That look is loud enough
You don't have to tell me how
It feels not to be in love
You see that was my oldest game
Darlin' it was my claim to fame
And I knew it when I met you, all that you would need is more than what I got
Oh so baby please just stop

It was Texas it was Tennessee
A kind of love a closer kin to grief
It was everything that I could want
But California came and took it all

Baby don't you talk no more
That look is loud enough
You don't have to tell me how
It feels not to be in love
You see that was my oldest game
Darlin' it was my claim to fame
And I knew it when I met you, all that you would need is more than what I got
Oh so baby please just stop
