She's Goin' To Texas
Author: Ben Laney

Just yesterday
She broke the news to me
And she didn't
Break it to me gently
She said Darlin'
I guess it's best you know
I'm headin' West
And I'm travelin' alone

Oh my whole world's
Shattered to peices
Hey I'm suffering
(yeah suffering)
Major misery
'Cause that girl's
Goin' to Texas
And she ain't
(no she ain't)
She ain't takin' me

I stood there stunned
Not believing my ears
My soul just sank
My eyes filled up with tears
I was so shocked
My tounge was paralyzed
I tried to speak
But I could only cry

I guess by now
She's past Albuquerque
Not givin' any thought
To how much she hurt me
Still I wish her well
On that highway of dreams
And I pray someday
She'll roll back to me


Oh my whole world's
Shattered to peices
Hey I'm suffering
(yeah suffering)
Major misery
'Cause that girl's
Goin' to Texas
And she ain't
(No she ain't)
She ain't takin' me
(No she ain't)
She ain't takin' me

------- Author's Notes -------

Oh, oh, oh! How cruel it is for a girl to be..to tell me she's goin' to TEXAS...and she ain't takin' ME! Now please excuse me..I'm gonna go dig up a bucket of worms and eat 'em for supper! I don't know why I didn't think of hiding myself under a tarp in the back of her pick up truck..I guess I was just in too much misery to think sraight! Ha! Haa! Haaaa! Oh ...wait a minute! That's not FUNNY, is it?
I'm dedicating this "itty bitty diddy" to Swiss Miss. See Ya Kids! -Ben
