Charley Pride – Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone? Lyrics

 

Rain dripping off the brim of my hat

It sure is cold today

And here I am’a walking down sixty-six

Wish she hadn’t done me that way

 

Sleeping under a table at a road side park

A man could wake up dead

But it sure seems warmer than it did

Sleeping in our king size bed

 

Is anybody going to San Antone

Or Phoenix Arizona

Anyplace is alright as long as I

Can forget I’ve ever known her

 

Wind whipping down the neck of my shirt

Like I ain’t got nothing on

But I’d rather fight the wind and rain

Than what I’ve been fighting at home

 

Yonder comes a truck with the US mail

People writing letters back home

Tomorrow she’ll probably want me back

But I’ll still be just as gone

 

Is anybody going to San Antone

Or Phoenix Arizona

Anyplace is alright as long as I

Can forget I’ve ever known her

 

Anyplace is alright as long as I

Forget I’ve ever known her
