I've been seeing other women
at the bottom of a glass,
The faces of all the lovers
that I've had in the past.
And as I sit here on this barstool
in my old familiar way,
I wonder how you're doing
out there in LA.

When we met south of Houston
I was living off the land.
I moved into the city
and asked your daddy for your hand.
Well you talked of being famous
and driving fancy cars,
While I'd get drunk on whiskey
and close down all the bars.

Then like some desert-wind tornado
you twirled off to LA,
And left the room spinning
to this very day.

Well I ain't never leaving Texas
And I hope you'll understand
I'm happy here in Houston
with a bottle in my hand.

I've gotten used to all your memories
and living with your ghost.
And I hope that you are happy
out there on the coast.

Cos I ain't never leaving Texas
And I hope you'll understand
I'm happy here in Houston
with a bottle in my hand.

There ain't nothing bout leaving Texas
I could ever understand.
So I'll stay here in Houston
with a bottle in my hand.
