    Lyrics

    At a truck stop in San Angelo
    I saw a billboard 'bout this rodeo
    Last weekend out in El Paso
    So I signed up to ride

    I drew a bull called Original Sin
    Heard he'd killed a couple of men
    Figured this was somethin' I could win
    'Cause the devil's on my side

    I was havin' myself one hell of a ride
    When I, I ended up disqualified
    'Cause that danged old bull just up and died
    Before they blew the whistle

    When I got them North Texas blues
    Thought, I'd paid all my dues
    Then them South Texas blues
    Told me, son you ain't through

    Had them East Texas blues
    And them West Texas too
    I've done all I know to do
    Tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these lone star blues

    I got laid off at Brown and Root
    On my way back to Cut and Shoot
    I lost my wristwatch and my boots
    Shootin' dice with a dude from Houston

    There ain't no jobs here workin' cattle
    So I got on part time haulin' gravel
    With some outfit from Seattle
    Down here buildin' custom homes

    When I got them North Texas blues
    Thought, I'd paid all my dues
    And then them South Texas blues
    Told me son you ain't through

    Had them East Texas blues
    And them West Texas too
    I've done all I know to do
    Tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these lone star blues, alright

    I gassed up my truck and packed my clothes
    Turned in my key and hit the road
    I said, Cowtown's where I'll go
    You never know I might get lucky

    I got a friend there turning knobs
    At this place called Billy Bob's
    Said he could get me a job
    There workin' as a bouncer

    First night on the job was just insane
    Some ol' boy got all deranged
    Hit me in the head with a Harley chain
    To this day my ears still ring

    I got them North Texas blues
    Thought, I'd paid all my dues
    And them South Texas blues
    Told me son you ain't through

    Had them East Texas blues
    And them West Texas too
    I've done all I know to do
    Tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these lone star blues

    I've done all I know to do
    Tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these lone star blues
