"Sweetwater Texas" as written by and Charlie Daniels....
When I was a young man in Sweetwater, Texas
Just one thing stayed on my mind
To ride a white horse, over Durango Mountain
And leave Sweetwater, Texas behind

But I turned 21, in Sweetwater, Texas
But just one thing made me stay there
I wanted to leave but I was in love with
The girl with the chestnut brown hair

Then came a time, when she said she'd be mine
And go any place, any time
So we rode a gray dog, over Durango Mountain
And left Sweetwater Texas behind

It was thunderin' and lightnin' when we left Nolan County
The bus rolled along through the night
And Old 36, was the magic black [Incomprehensible]
Leading towards the stadium lights

Well we pulled into Houston at ten in the morning
Our hopes were a high as the sky
But hope turned to weeks, then to years, then forever
I never knew how fast time goes by

Cowboys in cars and country girls in bars
Somehow, it just don't seem fair,
And I wanted to die 'cause I knew I was losing,
The girl with the chestnut brown hair

So many times I've said, I'd rather be dead,
Than take it down and go back, and unclear my head
But if the good Lord sees his way to let me live one more day
I'm so tired of being alone

Gonna ride a white horse over Durango Mountain
And make Sweetwater, Texas my home
