George Strait - All My Ex's Live In Texas Lyrics

 

All my ex's live in Texas

And Texas is the 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

Sweet Eileen's in Abilene

She forgot I hung the moon

And Allison's in Galveston

Somehow lost her sanity

And Dimple's who now lives in Temple's

Got the law looking for me

All my ex's live in Texas

And Texas is the 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

But it brings to mind another time

Where I wore my welcome thin

By 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 the place I'd dearly love to be

But all my ex's live in Texas

Therefore I reside in Tennessee

Some folks think I'm hidin'

It's been rumored that I died

But I'm alive and well in Tennessee
