Night Coach Out Of Dallas    (1971)

On a night coach out of Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA
There's not too much in Dallas to make a man who's free unpack and stay
I guess I've been a lotta miles and still ain't got no where
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas, maybe she'll be waitin' for me there

Last week it was Houston, the week before somewhere in New Orleans
With a pretty green-eyed redhead who swore that she could fill my life with dreams
But what she had offer came as no surprise to me
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA

But I wonder if I'm wastin' my time
Cause what it takes to satisfy, most people never find
Next week I might spend sometime in the foothills of the mountains or by the sea
Somewhere there must be someone with love that will belong to only me

So night coach take me out of here can't stay another day
Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA

But I wonder if I'm wastin' my time...

Tonight I'm leavin' Dallas headin' for the bright lights of LA
