I HEARD THE BURRITOS OUT IN CALIFORNIA
COULD FLY HIGHER THAN THE BIRDS
ROGER MCGINNIS HAD A TWELVE-STRING GUITAR
IT WAS LIKE NOTHING I’D EVER HEARD
AND THE EAGLES FLEW IN FROM THE WEST COAST
LIKE THE BIRDS, THEY WERE TRYING TO BE FREE
WHILE IN TEXAS, THE TALK TURNED TO OUTLAWS
LIKE WILLIE AND WAYLON AND ME
HEY,
WELL, THEY SAY TEXAS MUSIC’S IN THE MAKE
AND WE’VE BEEN MAKING’ MUSIC THAT IS FREE
DOING’ ONE-NIGHT STANDS,
PLAYING’ WITH OUR BANDS
WILLIE, WAYLON AND ME
OH MAD DOG
THEY SAY THE BEATLES WERE JUST THE BEGINNING
OF EVERYTHING MUSIC COULD BE
JUST LIKE THE STONES I WAS ROLLING ALONG
LIKE A SHIP LOST OUT ON THE SEA
AND JOPLIN WOULD DIE FOR THE FUTURE
AND DYLAN WOULD WRITE POETRY
AND IN TEXAS, THE TALK TURNED TO OUTLAWS LIKE
WILLIE AND WAYLON AND ME
RECITATION:
HEY, MY NAME IS DAVID ALLAN COE AND I’M FROM DALLAS, TEXAS
THEY SAY TEXAS MUSIC’S IN THE MAKE
AND WE’VE BEEN MAKING’ MUSIC THAT IS FREE
DOING’ ONE-NIGHT STANDS,
PLAYING’ WITH OUR BANDS
WILLIE, WAYLON AND ME
BIG JIM
