Chords

Song

chorus:

All my ex’s live in Texas,
And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to be,
But all my exes live in Texas,
And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

or:

All my ex’s live in Texas,
And Texas is the place I’d dearly love to live,
But all my exes live in Texas,
And that’s why I hang my hat in Tel Aviv.

1.

Rosanna’s down in Texarcana wanted me to push her broom,
And sweet Arlene in Abilene she forgot I owned the moon,
And Allison in Galveston somehow lost her sanity,
And Dimples who now lives in Temple's got the law looking for me.

chorus:

2.

I remember that old Frio river where I learned to swim,
But it brings to mind another time when I wore my welcome thin,
By transcendental meditation I go there each night,
But I’ll always come back to myself long before daylight.

chorus:

coda:

Some folks think I’m hiding,
It’s been rumored that I died,
But I’m alive and well in Tennessee.
