I’m going down to West Texas
Behind the Louisiana line.
I’m going down to West Texas
Behind the Louisiana line.
Get me that fortune telling woman,
Want to let her gonna read my mind.

If you ever go to Dallas,
Take the right hand road.
If you ever go to Dallas,
Take the right hand road.
For wasting down the street boys,
Is bound to kill ya for sure.

I’m going down to Jackson River
Past that West Texas line.
I’m going down to Jackson River
Behind that West Texas line.
If there’s a star up above,
Lord it’s mine, leading my sign.

Well you never miss your water
Till the well runs dry.
And you never miss your water
Till the well runs dry.
And you never miss your man
Till he says goodbye.

You can ride and tell my mama
I won’t be coming home tonight.
You can ride and tell my mother
I won’t be home tonight.
I’m going down the road boys,
I’ve got to do it right.

I’m going down to West Texas
Behind the Louisiana line.
I’m going down to West Texas
Behind the Louisiana line.
That fortune telling woman,
Won’t you let her really read my mind?
