Goin' Home

He came out of the womb with boots on
A two step straight to a man
Tommy's heart was tied up in Texas
But she left him with the ring in his hand

He took to flying finally touched down
In the cool Colorado snow
Met Helena looking like blue skies
Till he caught her with Romeo

He said I'm going home to Texas
I'm going back because
I've worn holes in my soles from the
Many loves not worth the chasing
Many aces not worth laying down
Tried to fly best that I could
I'm going home to Texas
Going home to Texas
Aye aye I'm going home

The pain hung on but not for too long
With a smile he pulled out the knife
In Abeline he met Angelina
She said "Tommy, start a new life"
They had a son gave him thier best yes
He grew tall and fast as a weed
Tommy said I think I'm alive now
I've got a Lonestar Queen

Yes'n I'm staying here in Texas
I'm stayin' here because
I've worn holes in my soles from the
Many fights not worth the hurtin'
Many roads not worth rollin' down
I'm feeling good the best that I could
I'm staying here in Texas
Holdin' up in Texas
Aye aye I'm staying here

One day tommy was angry
A pain shot straight to his arm
Angelina was there in a panic
Tommy smiled with cowboy charm
He said ya know we had a good life
Your the best thing that's happened to me
As she held him in her arms tremblin'
He said "Now I'll rest in peace" because

I'm going home to Texas
I'm laying down because
I've worn holes in my soles from
All the time that I've been given
All the years that I've been hanging on
I've given you the best of my love honey
I'm laying down inTexas
Going home to Texas
Aye aye I'm going home

He came out of the womb with boots on
A two step straight to a man
Angelina lays down the flowers
By the stone where he lays in her land

Chorus

Peter Pan people fly in make believe
Push button junkie says time is money
Carry's a valise thinks he's Hercules

Adieu to you (I'm not feeling up to it)
Adiey to you
Adiey to you (I'm not feeling up to it)
Adieu to you
