lyrics

Get me out of Amarillo
Somewhere I want to be
Some place right beside you
Watching old TV
Reruns of hey Arnold
Putting us to sleep
I'd be right beside you all along
'Stead I'm spending this Sunday alone.

The sunrise through my window
In this roadside motel
Three summers from the day
That you first kissed me
Knocking back this coffee
That's been sitting here for days
I still hear your whispering on the phone
Though I'm spending this Monday alone

My worn out blue sedan
You named her Caroline
She's gettin up near
Two hundred thousand mile
From all those trips through Texas
Driving through the nights I
Swear there's somethin we still haven't done
But I'm spending this Tuesday alone

This smoky 80 proof
That burns in my throat
It helps me relax
Sometimes
I can't be at my best
With these worries bearing down
Aside from this whiskey bottle
I'm spending this Wednesday alone

The parking lot is full
for the weekend
And I'm lookin round for
where I'm supposed to go
No one hears the calls
From the ravens
The exhausted desperation in their tone
From spending one more night alone

I hope you're playing songs
From those CDs that I burned
There some things that
Just have to be sung
Drivin down the
Highway 27
I brought you somethin back from Amarillo
These bluebonnets welcome me home
