"It's Raining Hard In Texas"

I wrote this new song to sum up my trip to Austin. It's all based on a true story...honest. Chorus It's raining hard in Texas, Lightning fills the sky I'm not sure I'll make it to my plane in time to fly The BBQ and wine stains are alive on my new shirt I hope we make it one more night with no one getting hurt. A Mexican martini, crawfish etoufee The music's pretty loud, I can't hear a word you say I'm driving 'round, I'm lost again and I don't have a clue How to get off this damn highway, now what do I do? Chorus Open mic, a cowboy sings a little bit off key More Tito's handmade vodka and a beer for Bobby Z We order up some pizza and watch the music play Thinking we should pull the cord so he'd have no more to say Chorus I went up to Lake Travis, Todd Snider sang his song All the drunk people in the pool, they tried to sing along It you can't beat 'em, join 'em, so I bought another drink The Patron and Grand Marnier made it easier to think Chorus The Red Eyed Fly and Hilton are worlds apart you know A black t-shirt and nose ring to dress right for the show I'll take the Continental Club and order another round And not worry how I'll make it back to my hotel downtown Chorus
