When I Get Back From Houston

She was the kind of girl that most men only see in their best dreams
Had a face just like an angel, smilin? down on me
Momma told me ?boy, you?d better just beware, there?s somethin? about her bleach-blonde hair
And that crooked lttle smile, tells me something just ain?t right

I said ?Don?t worry Momma, everything?s gonna be just fine?
She?s a baseball fan, and she makes my dinner, just the way I like.
I can?t believe how good she looks in the early mornin? light
I don?t see what you?re saying? here, She?s movin? in tonight!

It was late July and I had to leave on a 6-week Texas swing
I was packin? up to hit the road, when my buddy came to me
He said, ?I hate to say it but I heard some things, ?bout your golden-haired delight?
I said, ?We?ll talk about this later,pal, as my bus pulled into sight.

I said ?Don?t worry Johnson, everything?s gonna be just fine?
She?s a NASCAR fan, and she makes my coffee, just the way I like.
I don?t see what you?re sayin? here, she?s a looker, ain?t that right?
And she loves me every evenin? ?till the early mornin? light.

LEAD Break

?Bout a month or so, I was havin? trouble, reachin her at home
Then late one night, my buddy called me up on my cell phone
Said I heard your little lady had a yard sale with your stuff
Then she emptied out your bank account and took off in your new truck

I said ?Good gravy Johnson, ain?t a thing here lookin? fine?
And I can?t believe I?m gonna hafta tell, my momma she was right
Looks like that girl had a devil?s horns, behind them angel?s wings.
Sometimes a man gets blinded, and he can?t see anything

When I get back from Houston, I?m gonna track that woman down
Gonna find out where she?s livin?, and I?m gonna run her out of town
Gonna make her wash my pick-up truck, get back that diamond ring
When I get back from Houston, I?m gonna get back everything

Don't worry momma, everything?s gonna be just fine
I?m gonna find out where she put my money, gonna get back every dime
When I get back from Houston, I?m gonna track that woman down
I?m gonna make her wash my old truck . . . . . . etc.

When I get back from Houston, I?m gonna get back everything
When I get back from Houston, I?m gonna get back everything
When I get back from Houston, I?m gonna get back everything
