Alan Jackson – Dallas Lyrics

 

[Verse 1]

Dallas packed her suitcase

And drove off in the brand new car I bought her

She made leaving me look easy

I wish she’d made it look a little harder

I took her out of Texas

When she was just a girl

But old Tennessee and me

Couldn’t take Texas out of her

 

[Chorus]

On how I wish Dallas was in Tennessee

If I could move Texas east

Then she’d be here with me

Then nothing else would come between the two of us

If Dallas was in Tennessee

 

[Verse 2]

By now she’s leaving Memphis

And everything we had behind her

Lord I hope the gold band on her hand

Will serve as a reminder

That true love is a treasure

That’s very seldom found

But you can’t stay together if there’s no common ground

 

[Chorus]

Oh how I wish Dallas was in Tennessee

If I could move Texas east

Then she’d be here with me

Then nothing else would come between the two of us

If Dallas was in Tennessee

Oh if Dallas was in Tennessee

 

[Outro]

Dallas packed her suitcase

And drove off in the brand new car I bought her
