Lone Star Blues
By Delbert McClinton

     G
At a truck stop in San Angelo
        C
I saw a billboard 'bout this rodeo
     D
Last weekend out in El Paso
                  G
So I signed up to ride

I drew a bull called Original Sin
Heard he'd killed a couple of men
Figured this was somethin' I could win
'Cause the devil's on my side
I was havin' myself one hell of a ride
When I ended up disqualified
'Cause that danged old bull just up an' died
Before they blew the whistle

Chorus:
               G  
And I got them North Texas blues
            C
Thought I'd paid all my dues
          D
Then them South Texas blues
                      G 
Told me son you ain't through
         G
Had them East Texas blues
         C
An' then West Texas too
          D
I've done all I know to do
                                               G
To try to lose, to try to lose these Lone Star Blues


I got laid off at Brown and Root
On my way back to Cut 'N Shoot
I lost my wristwatch an' my boots
Shootin' dice with a dude from Houston
There ain't no jobs here workin' cattle
So I got on part-time hauling gravel
With some outfit from Seattle
Down here building custom homes

Chorus

Instrumental break

I gassed up my truck an' I packed my clothes
Turned in my key and I hit the road
I said Cow Town's where I'll go
You never know, I might get lucky
I got a friend there turnin' knobs
At this place called Billy Bob's
Said he could get me a job there
Working as a bouncer
First night on the job was just insane
Some old boy got all deranged
Hit me in the head with a Harley chain
To this day, my ears still ring


Chorus

I've done all I know to do,
Tryin' to lose,
Tryin' to lose these lone star blues
