"I'm a long time comin', I'll be a long time gone" she coos in my ear,
a featherless name, down in the village,
wipin' sweat off the streets,
makin' Jesus' bed up for dyin'.


Honey get the hell outta Texas
Honey, I been waitin' too long
Honey, get the hell outta Texas
Shoulda learned better, shoulda known you don't belong

Honey, my bed is restless.
Honey, my head's a breaking storm.
Honey, my bed is restless-
and you been reckless since the day I was born

"I ain't seen ya since summer passed."
"I ain't seen you since summer last."
"I ain't seen ya since this town's been dry."
"I ain't seen ya since Hannah died."

Honey, find the next train & catch it
Honey, come fill my lonesome arms
Honey, find the next train & catch it
Lord knows they ain't never made a love like ours.
