A Boy from Texas

There was once a boy from Texas
Who slept every night in his Lexus
He was once a talented high school football and track star
Whose bad luck caused him to sleep in his car

He just started roaming around
Wandering from town to town
Hoping to have a fresh start
And find peace within his heart

He once wanted to travel the world
But after he lost his girl
He became a traveling gypsy
Wanting to forget his history

What can he possibly do?
To help himself from stop feeling blue
This boy from the Lone Star State
Wants to go home and stop this lonely trait

That has plagued him for over ten years
So he is drying his tears
And going back home to Texas
In his black Lexus

To make things right
He will arrive there by tonight
He is going back to the town of Silsbee
And making things right with his girl and his family
