        A
Well my wife returns from taking

My little girl to school

She's got beads of perspiration

As she tries to keep her cool

She says that mess it don't get no better

There's gonna come a day
     F
Someone's gonna get killed out there
      G                   A
And I turn to her and say Texas

She says what?
       Em
I said Texas
         A
She says what?
            D
They've got big long road out there
