Calf-Rope - Guy Clark

The last time it snowed in Del Rio hell froze
I could not believe that I missed it
So far from the border so close to the line
Son I almost got down and kissed it

But it's too far from home and it's too late to look back
Two times a night make it tough
Bee Spears showed me the day that I met him
Too much ain't never enough

Lord this old road she's enough to make you holler
Holler Calf-Rope -- Make you holler Calf-Rope

Let me just say that the road to good intentions
Is paved with the fools I've been
You can get up or stay up, it's all the same com sunup
All you got to do it is go again

Lord this old road she's enough to make you holler
Holler Calf-Rope-- Make you holler Calf-Rope
Calf-Rope-- Make you your
Nose to the road grind runnin' right on road time
Gone deaf dumb and road blind you can chalk it up to road crime

It's a fool of the road kind tryin' to make the road rhyme with
Calf-Rope -- Make you holler Calf-Rope
