Lyrics

Let’s get on down the road girl
You know I love this city
But I can’t take these winters anymore
Turn the light out in the kitchen
Leave a note there on the table
I’ll pack up the wagon
You can lock the door

I’ve got friends outside of Nashville
Down in Murfreesboro
They say down that way, it hardly ever snows
Or there’s the peach groves down in Georgia
Big as all creation
We could sit and watch ‘em blossom
All in pretty Georgia rows

Mandy's down in Austin
She says it’s getting hot there
I bet you and I could find a place out near Seguin
Where I could play my music
Maybe you could wait some tables
And that boy of ours could join the baseball team

Let's get on down the road girl
You know I love this city
But I can’t take these winters anymore
So turn the light out in the kitchen
Leave a note there on the table
I’ll pack up the wagon
Darlin’, you can lock the door

I know you’ll miss your mama
And I’ll miss Sue’s fried chicken
But there’s some fine green chili
Down ‘round Santa Fe
Or we could bring your ma to visit
And let her walk along the ocean
If we found ourselves a beach house down
South Padre Island way
We could head for Arizona
Maybe even California
Watch the sun set on the Bay of Monterrey
But I lean most toward Texas
You know we could spread a blanket
Spend Christmas trashed on cold Coronas
In Marina Del Ray

Let's get on down the road girl
You know I love this city
But I can’t take these winters anymore
So turn the light out in the kitchen
Leave a note there on the table
Darlin’ I’ll pack up the wagon
You can lock the door
