From the recording Texas Blue

Lyrics

My City

That hot August sun
Will bend you backwards
When you’re bound
I used to run
Out on the streets
Of my old town

There was a sweet breeze
Bloodied up my night skies
Down in the heart of town
You could hear that city cry

When you take your last swig
Of my city
And fear the going dry
When you’re looking
For the next thing
To believe in
In the city of your mind

As the city goes
So go you and I
As the city goes

Heard a black cat wailing
Heard the river wailing too
Saw the sun fading
On the doors of Waterloo

I can see her
She is choking just like me
There’s the man I am
And the one I could be

When you take your last swig
Of my city
And fear the going dry
When you’re looking
For the next thing
To believe in
In the city of your mind

As the city goes
So go you and I

That hot August sun
Can bend you backwards
When you’re bound
I used to run
Out on the streets
Of Austin town
