Mac Davis - Texas In My Rearview Mirror            A5 x02250 
   
Verse 1
      D           A               G                      D      
I was just 15 and out of control, lost to James Dean and rock and roll 
  G                    D                  A     Asus4 A5
I knew down deep in my country soul that I had to get away 
      D           A               G                      D  
Hollywood was a lady in red that danced in my dreams as I tossed in bed 
  G                   D            A            D     
I knew I'd wind up in jail or dead if I have to stay 
 
 
Chorus 1: 
              G                      A                    D
And I thought happiness was Lubbock, Texas in my rearview mirror 
   G                    A               D        A      G     
My mama kept callin' me home but I just did not want to hear her 
        G                  E7            A7 Asus4  
And the vision was getting clearer in my dreams 
 
Verse 2
      D           A               G                      D 
So I lit out one night in June, stoned on the glow of a Texas moon 
  G                    D                  A   Asus4 A5
Hummin' an old Buddy Holly tune called Peggy Sue 
      D                       A            G                      D
With my favorite jeans and a cheap guitar, I ran off chasin' a distant star
   G                    D                  A  
If Buddy Holly could make it that far, I figured I could too 
 
 
Chorus 2:      
              G                      A                    D
And I thought happiness was Lubbock, Texas in my rearview mirror 
   G                    A               D        A      G     
My mama kept callin' me home but I just did not want to hear her 
        G                  E7            A7 Asus4  
And the vision was getting clearer in my dreams
 
 
Bridge: 
        Bm                                       F#m 
But the Hollywood moon didn't smile the same old smile that I'd grown up with 
    Bm               F#m            E7  
The lady in red just wanted my last dime 
      D               D/C#            D/B                  D/A 
And I cried myself to sleep at night, too dumb to run, too scared to fight 
    G            E7              A   Asus4 A5
And too proud to admit it at the time 
 
Verse 3
      D                   A               G                      D
So I got me some gigs on Saturday nights, not much more than orchestrated fights 
  G                    D                  A       Asus4          A5
I'd come home drunk and I'd try to write  but the words came out wrong 
 
      D             A                  G                      D 
Hellbent and bound for a wasted view, too much gin and not enough Vermouth 
  G                    D                            A                D
And no one to teach me how to seek the truth before I put it in the song 
 
 
Chorus 3: 
              G                      A                    D
And I thought happiness was Lubbock, Texas in my rearview mirror 
   G                    A               D        A      G     
My mama kept callin' me home but I just did not want to hear her 
        G                  E7            A7 Asus4  
And the vision was getting clearer in my dreams
 
Verse 4
      D                A            G                           D 
I thank god each and every day for giving me the music and the words to say 
  G                      D          A     Asus4   A5
I'd-a never made it any other way, He was my only friend 

      D                   A                       G                            D
And now I sleep a little better at night and when I look in the mirror in the morning light
   G                    D                  A      Asus4  
The man I see was both wrong and right, he's goin' home again 
 
 
Chorus 4: 
         G                      A                    D
I guess happiness was Lubbock, Texas In my rearview mirror 
        G                      A            D      A    G
But now happiness is Lubbock, Texas Growin' nearer and dearer  
        G                  E7            A7 Asus4 
And the vision is gettin' clearer in my dreams 
        G                  E7            A7 Asus4 
And I think I fin'lly know just what it means 
           G            E7                  A7          D   
And when I die, you can bury me in Lubbock, Texas'in my jeans

This song title is actually Lubbock, Texas in My Rearview Mirror. Mac was from the same home town as Buddy Holly, which was Lubbock, Texas.

That would be the lyrics not the title of the song.
