Lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
All my exes live in TexasAnd Texas is a place I’d dearly love to beBut all my exes live in TexasAnd that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee
Rosanna’s down in TexarkanaWanted me to push her broomSweet Eileen’s in AbileneShe forgot I hung the moonAnd Allison’s in GalvestonSomehow lost her sanityAnd Dimples who now lives in Temple’sGot the law looking for me
All my exes live in TexasAnd Texas is a place I’d dearly love to beBut all my exes live in TexasAnd that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee
I remember that old Frio RiverWhere I learned to swimBut it brings to mind another timeWhere I wore my welcome thinBy transcendental meditationI go there each nightBut I always come back to myselfLong before daylight
All my exes live in TexasAnd Texas is a place I’d dearly love to beBut all my exes live in TexasTherefore I reside in Tennessee
Some folks think I’m hidin’It’s been rumored that I diedBut I’m alive and well in Tennessee
