Some love affairs start in the heart, and stay in the heart forever. Pamela honors her love for Billy Lee Clayton in this tender song that weaves the boundries between the man and the place where he was born and raised.


(Pamela Polland)

Texas, I hardly have seen you at all
Just on cross-country flights
And in traveling rock & roll shows
Texas, I've seen you in some mighty strange places
Once I even saw you in Colorado

But Texas, I feel like I know you
Though maybe not too well
Wish I'd thought to get a silver dollar souvenier
So, I could say, "well, I've been there."

Once when I thought you were coming to take me
I held my head high so the whole world could see
Flying on the wings of my own expectations
I lost sight of any plans that you had for me

But listen, Texas, I feel like I know you
Though maybe not too well
Now you have gone, but the love lingers on
And I sit at home with this song.

Take me with you, Texas
Please, take me with you.......

I stayed up til dawn to watch the new world come on
But all that came was this song.
