Texas Was Clean - Indigo Girls

Texas was clean, just an oilman's dream
A slate that I'd never written on
Dust blowing' round a lonely town
Boots on the board of a barn

As far from the south without getting out
The corner of my heart

All this born in the powder and the horn
The feather on the gridded green
The brown and the white, the rich and the poor
Taking the hit for the team

And the horse they rode was a merry soul
Flickering on my bed post at night

Hey I wanna go, I wanna go there
And it's just another place to go
Just another place to go

The horse they rode was a merry soul
Flickering on my bed post at night

I knew you for a moment or two
In a life that seems to just expand
In the Austin night under vapor lights
You laughed at me then you took me in

On the day of the dead in a circle we said the names
The corner of our hearts

Hey I wanna go, I wanna go there
And it's just another place to go
Just another place to go

As far from the south without getting out
The corner of my heart
