Share Me With Texas

album: Keepin' Time by the River (1998), track 6 of 12
author: Steve Gillette
publisher: Foreshadow Songs BMI 1992

Well, you're going to have to
Share me with Texas
You're going to have to
Let me take my time
From the honky-tonks in Dallas
To the banks of the Pedernales
Wherever that county two-lane winds
You're going to have to
Share me with the wildflowers
When I can't get
Highway from my mind
   You're going to have to
   Share me with Texas
   'Cause I can't leave Texas behind
   Oh and I do love you
   And I'll always be true
   As long as I can wander
   In those meadows down yonder
   Where that country moon
   Shines through
I wish you'd take me
Where that traffic won't wake me
And love me when you're so inclined
   You're going to have to
   Share me with Texas
   'Cause I can't leave Texas behind
You're going to have to
Share me with the fireflies
I'll be staring at those stars 'til I go blind
   You're going to have to
   Share me with Texas
   'Cause I can't leave, I won't leave Texas,
   No I can't leave Texas behind
