Song Lyrics

«     »    

Beaumont

album: Cover Stories (2015), track 1 of 12
author: Hayes Carll
publisher: Highway 87 Music (SESAC) 2008

I saw you leaning on a memory
With your back turned to the crowd
In that little bar on Murphy
Where they play guitar too loud
There were people drinking whiskey
There were hearts about to leave
It was cold as hell for Houston
It was almost New Years Eve
 CHORUS
   All the way from Beaumont
   With a white rose in my hand
   I could not wait forever
   I hope you understand
Well, the night was feeling lucky
So I asked you to dance
And the way you looked up at me
Made me think I had a chance
But I put my arms around you
I knew you weren't giving in
I hope it will be different
If I pass this way again
 CHORUS
I walked a road to get here
With a guitar and a case
I'd have stopped in Pasadena
If Id have known about this place
But the view looked like forever
Where the water meets the shore
I've been thinking about you, baby
I can't do that anymore
 CHORUS
I saw you leaning on a memory
With your back turned to the crowd
In that little bar on Murphy
Where they play guitar too loud
There were people drinking whiskey
There were hearts about to leave
It was cold as hell for Houston
It was almost New Years Eve
 CHORUS
