I've lived without bread and I've lived without water,
Stuck outside the middle of the desert wishin I was home.
Long way from nowhere, wishin I was somewhere,
Sombre de Cristo, the Devils Backbone.

I've been to California and North Carolina,
Hung with the hippies in Austin, and the cowboys of Mexico.
I've laid up in Fort Worth with beautiful ladies,
Hitch hiked on down 281 and hit the rodeo in San Anton.

In the back of a Ranchero, I rode down to Laredo,
Had a good time with the la posadi, yeah you know I was left alone.
On a rig out of El Paso, rainin down in Houston.
Told the truck driver, “Put the pedal to the metal cause Houston gets me down.”
On down to Louisiana, Whiskey River Landing,
Crawfish pie and jambalaya with a big ol’ coon ass smile.

From Jack B.
