I learned to drive on those East Texas red clay backroads


            (play same as above)       

And I mean to tell you my friend they weren't no easy roads

And detour through the Lindsay's pasture when the waters ran too deep


Verse 2 played the same as verse 1

Memories of East Texas and of Gilmer, county seat of Upshur
Looking back and asking myself ``What the hell did you let them break your spirit for?''
Their lives ran in circles so small, they thought they'd seen it all
And they couldn't make a place for a girl who'd seen the ocean

Verse 3

But those memories of East Texas and those pine-green rolling hills
Covered in the springtime with wild daffodils
Sitting in those Piney woods, playing my guitar
Thinking back on the roads I'd come, thinking I had not come that far
