Leaving Texas
Daniel Weber ©2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP)

Today you're leaving Texas, as if I couldn't tell
Your bags are packed; you ain't lookin' back; now it's time to wish you well
So I'll kiss you and tell you, your journey's just begun
But no matter how far you roam, this is where you're from

Chorus:

So you can go to California, I hope your dreams come true
And you can leave Texas behind, but Texas will never leave you

Times were tough; hope I did enough, to start you on your way
Forgive me too, for feelin' as blue, as the Texas sky today
Remember I taught you: You give it all you have to give
‘Cause that's where the Heart of Texas, the Heart of Texas lives

Chorus:

So you can go to California, I hope your dreams come true
And you can leave Texas behind, but Texas will never leave you

Bridge:

Well I know you need to go, but please understand
If you think about comin' back, you just get here as fast, as fast as you can

Chorus:

So you go to California, and I'll wait here for you
‘Cause you can leave Texas behind, but Texas will never leave you
You can leave Texas behind, but Texas will never leave you
You can leave Texas behind, but Texas will never leave you
