*************** PUT ME ON A TRAIN BACK TO TEXAS ***************
written by Jim Hurt,Billy Nelson and Roy Clayborne
performed by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.

Verse 1: (Willie)
	I've been on the road most all of my life
	Traveled from coast to coast

	In search of some pleasures and treasures and things
	Whatever pleased me the most

	Like bandanas and blue jeans and old cowboy clothes
	That bring back an old country song
	About rough rides and red-eyes and old broken bones
             C/G             G            D 
	And railroad tracks running back home

Chorus: (Willie & Waylon)
         G                          D 
	Put me on a train back to Texas
              G                         D
	I've been where the highwaymen roam
         G                          D
	Put me on a train back to Texas
                C/G         G           D
	Wake me up when we reach San Antone
                C/G         G           D
	Wake me up when we reach San Antone

Verse 2: (Waylon)
	Mamma says home's where the heart is
	Like Bob Wills said in a poem
	My heart is there in the middle of Texas
	Beside the old Alamo

	Like my broken in saddle and old leather boots
	I'm worn but i'm still going strong
	Cowboys can tell when the season is changing
           C/G            G           D 
	And i think it's time to move on
