Texas Blues-Willie Reed
E position, standard tuning

I'm going out in West Texas, where I can hear the wild ox moan
I'm going out in West Texas, where I can hear the wild ox moan
Says, it moaned so bad 'til it made me leave my home

Lord, pretty mama, what's the matter now?
Lord, pretty mama, what's the matter now?
You know if you didn't want me, why'd you lead me back in town?

I'm going way out in West Texas, just to learn the cowboy style
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, learn the cowboy style
Then I'm comin' back to Dallas, gonna run these women wild

You can read your schoolbook, hymnbook on down
You can read your schoolbook, hymnbook on down
You can read my letter but you sure can't read my mind

You can't never tell when your woman's gonna put you down
Well, you can't never tell when your woman's gonna put you down
Got a smile on her face and a heart that's full of frown

Take me, pretty mama, try me one more time
Oh Lord, and try me one more time
If I don't treat you better, I'll break my neck a-tryin'

Said, I lay down last night, my mind was ramblin' 'round
I lay down last night, my mind was ramblin' 'round
Thinkin' about my lover, she had done put me down
