Just Shot Past Hot Springs (Larry W. Jones 12/19/2006) (song#4248)

Yesterday I left my dreams in Houston
Back in that bayou city with you
It’s a pity I had to run
But I was tired of feeling blue
I gassed up the tank in Texarkana
Just as I had planned
Reset the stations on the radio
Watched for the law man

Now I just shot past Hot Springs
Following the white dotted line
Don’t know what the road will bring
But I’ve gotta get you off my mind
Gotta keep my hands on the wheel
While my heart is weeping still
This old blacktop is turning blue
And I can’t stop me from loving you
Now I just shot past Hot Springs
But it’s not gettin’ me over you

Staring at headlights in the dark
Like deer in the headlights do
Hear the blare of a honky tonk bar
On the radio that sounds like you
I wish we had turned things around
Before I left that old Astrodome
But I’m here and I’m Nashville bound
By tomorrow you’ll know I’m gone

Now I just shot past Hot Springs
Following the white dotted line
Don’t know what the road will bring
But I’ve gotta get you off my mind
Gotta keep my hands on the wheel
While my heart is weeping still
This old blacktop is turning blue
And I can’t stop me from loving you
Now I just shot past Hot Springs
But it’s not gettin’ me over you
