Texas Rain

"The roof of the Armadillo didn't leak,

only a little," said John,

leaning up against a tree.

"And if the band on stage was cooking

and I'd been doing some hot-footing,

getting wet sure never bothered me."

Standing in the Texas rain

you could almost feel your heart change.

It'll give you a little relief

from that hot hot Texas heat

and when you feel it coming down

you don't need to wonder why

you want to thank the sky for the Texas rain.

Traveling dusty and dirty

through the hills so hot and thirsty,

I felt a few drops and that was all.

And though I've done some things I shouldn't,

don't you think I wouldn't know enough

to come in when it starts to fall?

Because standing in the Texas rain...

A woman with a southern accent

leaning over and laughing,

giving me a taste of that Texas style.

We heard the rain fall together

from underneath a lean-to shelter.

I remember a cool breeze making us smile.

Standing in the Texas rain...
