Lyrics and Melody
by Alexey Peshkovsky
I’m still in Texas today,
I’m almost ready to go.
It’s over, what can I say?
I should be going, I know.
They wait for me to come back,
They wait for me to return,
And, though it’s crazy and cold,
I must get back to my world…
The sunset burns “Lucy in the sky”.
Why don’t you pass me the wine?
The desert stars, oh we get along so fine,
Texas and I!
In Memphis I’m gonna get drunk,
Let music dance with my soul,
Musicians, hookers and bums
Will bleed me out of my dough…
Don’t wait for me to come back,
Don’t wait for me to return,
I’ll disappoint you, my friends:
Tonight I’ve got other plans!
I watch them dance to the blues, so why not?
Why don’t I take another shot?
The city lights, oh we get along so fine,
Whiskey and I!
