One Her Own in the Lone Star State

One Her Own in the Lone Star State

Julie’s been thinking lately
‘Bout starting brand new gig
She’s tired of waiting tables
She wants more from life than this

So she bought an old guitar
And she’s learning how to play
She loves those sad country songs
They help chase her blues away

She’s going out on the road
To play honky tonks and bars
She’s been thinking that Texas
Would be a good place to start

Chorus:
She’s gonna paint every town
From the Red River to the Rio Grande
Then she’ll settle down somewhere
Maybe buy a little land
Where she can sit by the streams
Catch a fish, write a song, fall in love
In a place as big as her dreams
She’s going soon and she can’t wait
To be on her own in the Lone Star State

Since she was a little girl
She’s had Texas on her mind
Everyone always told her
Texas is one of a kind

Her father used to tell her
‘Bout Austin and San Antone
All the cowboys in Dallas
Houston and the Astrodome

Chorus:
She’s gonna paint every town
From the Red River to the Rio Grande
Then she’ll settle down somewhere
Maybe buy a little land
Where she can sit by the streams
Catch a fish, write a song, fall in love
In a place as big as her dreams
She’s going soon and she can’t wait
To be on her own in the Lone Star State
