Got my suitcase and the shirt on my back
And my mind on one track
Like my grandma said, When you walk away, you can never look back
Gonna drive for miles and miles on end to make my peace
I'll be 100 miles past the state line before he misses me
I'm headed back down south where I belong
Gonna be on Texas Time tonight

Gonna soak my feet at the Motel 6 around 3 a.m.
I'm gonna sleep alone in the queen size bed,
The first time without him
Wake up at the break of dawn, load up my truck
Be blaring SRV on the radio when he gets himself up
Yeah, it feels so good to be southbound
Gonna be on Texas Time tonight

Texas Time, Texas Time

You can keep the pots and pans I bought when I met you
After all the times that we have fought, I've had enough of you
No more Sundays washing your underwear, mending your socks
I've been driving now for 17 hours, time to set back the clock
Going back to the state where I was born
Gonna be on Texas Time tonight

Texas Time, Texas Time
