  Together Through Life recording session, - October 2008  

If you ever go to Houston
Better walk right
Keep your hands in your pockets
And your gun belt tied
You'll be askin' for trouble
If you're looking for a fight
If you ever go to Houston
Boy you better walk right.

If you're ever down there
On Bagby and Lamar
You better watch out for
The man with the shining star
Better know where you're going 
Or stay where you are
If you're ever down there
On Bagby and Lamar.

Well i know these streets
I've been here before
I nearly got killed here
During the Mexican war
Something always
Keeps me comin' back for more
I know these streets
I've been here before.

If you ever go to Dallas
Say hello to Mary Ann
Say I'm still pullin' on the trigger
Hanging on the best  i can
If you see her sister Lucy
Say I'm sorry I'm not there
Tell her other sister Nancy
To pray the sinner's prayer.

I got a restless fever
Burnin' in my brain
Got to keep ridin' forward
Can't spoil the game
The same way I'll leave here
Will be the way that i came
Got a restless fever
Burnin' in my brain.

Mr. policeman
Can you help me find my gal
Last time i saw her
Was at the Magnolia motel
If you help me find her
You can be my pal
Mr. policeman
Can you help me find my gal.

If you ever go to Austin
Fort Worth or San Anton'
Find the bar rooms i got lost in
And send my memories home
Put my tears in a bottle
Screw the top on tight
If you ever go to Houston
Boy you'd better walk right.  up
