Nanci Griffith West Texas Sun Lyrics

Last updated: 04/11/2006 11:00:00 AM

(Nanci Griffith)

Wash away the tears, all the angry times we shared,
All the feelings and the sorrows come and gone,
We have left them slip away, because I'm standing here today,
And I'm smiling at your old west Texas sun.

I remember times when you'd weathered out my mind,
But you always had a peaceful word to say.
And you could bring always bring a smile with the mischief in your eyes
Still, I'm glad the miles kept me separate from your games.

You know you're still as wild as those old Texas plains.
Standing by the highway, do you still call my name?
Lord, I can't believe it's been such a long, long time
Since I've seen that Texas boy smile.

Well, I'll be heading out of town, I may stop by next time around.
Hell, it's raining, but at least that's something real.
I came shackled down with fears about our dreams and wasted years,
And now I know exactly how to feel.

Wash away the tears, all the angry times we shared,
All the feelings and the sorrows come and gone.
We have let them slip away, because I'm standing here today,
Smiling at your old west Texas sun.
