All My Ex’s Live In Texas

By S. Shafer & L. Shafer

All my ex’s live in Texas
And Texas is a place I’d dearly love to be
But all my ex’s live in Texas
And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee

Rosanna’s down in Texarkana; wanted me to push her broom
And sweet Ilene’s in Abilene; she forgot I hung the moon
And Allison in Galveston somehow lost her sanity
And Dimples who now lives in Temple’s
Got the law lookin’ for me

All my ex’s live in Texas,
And Texas is a place I’d dearly love to be
But all my ex’s live in Texas
And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee

I remember that old Frio river where I learned to swim
And it brings to mind another time where I wore my welcome thin
My transcendental meditation, I go there each night
But I always come back to myself
Long before daylight

All my ex’s live in Texas,
And Texas is a place I’d dearly love to be.
But all my ex’s live in Texas
And that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee.

Some folks think I’m hidin’
It’s been rumored that I died
But I’m alive and well in Tennessee
