TEXAS SKIES - 1975

There was a time in Texas when the bars were full of cheer
Folks would sing their favorite songs and drink that long necked beer
They'd sing about Red Necked Mothers and laugh and dance and yell
Texans had what nobody had and they weren't afraid to tell

CHORUS...Now the TEXAS SKIES are in my eyes
Her clouds, they fill my heart
And, you know, it came as no surprise
Since we fell apart

There was a time in Texas when you could feel the crowd
And nobody seemed to notice that the music was too loud
We'd sing that Country Western and Rock and Roll, of course
And you could be a cowboy without a pickup or a horse

CHORUS

There was a time in Texas when the sky would speak out loud
And every tiny bar had a band and every band had a crowd
A three-piece band named Calico still knew who they were
And a band called TEXAS WATER had just begun to stir

CHORUS
