Lone Star State of Mind

Words and Music: Nanci Griffith

VERSE 1
G Am
Your phone call took me by surprise
D G
Gee it’s been a real long time
Am
Since those hot and humid Texas nights
Am D G
When we went swimmin’ in the tide
Am D
Corpus Christi seems so far away
G
And I’m not talking ’bout the miles
Am D
There ain’t much I wouldn’t give today
D G
Just to see one of your smiles

CHORUS
C D
Here I sit alone in Denver
D G
Sippin’ California wine
C D
And I’ve got all night to remember you
G
I’m in a Lone Star State of mind

VERSE 2

I just saw John Wayne on the late late show
He saved the girl and rode away
And I was hopin’ as the credits rolled
He’d make it back to her some day

REPEAT CHORUS
C D
Yeah I’ve got all night to remember you
G Am C D G
I’m in a Lone Star State of mind
