All My Ex's Live In Texas    (1986)

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 Texarcana, wanted me to push her broom.
And sweet Ilene's in Abilene, she forgot I hung the moon.
And Allison's in Galveston, somehow lost her sanity.
And Dimples, who now lives in Temple's, got the law looking 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,
But it brings to mind, another town 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 a 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 hiding,
It's been rumored that I died.
But I'm alive and well in Tennessee.
