lyrics

It's a thousand miles from nowhere
Got to drive forever just to get there
It's a mojo land and a tumble weed
And there ain't no water when you get there

They got some shotguns a swingin'
And some whiskey drinkin'
Cowboys a livin' there

I got a sister who lives there
She's a pretty little thing with long black hair
Southern bell, yellow rose
A poster child, don't ya know
For everything that grows there

She got some shotguns a swingin'
And some whiskey drinkin'
Cowboys livin' there

When you're running through that desert
Got your eyes searching around
For the light of the city rising
Like a fire across the ground
Your heart it starts to racin' when you see that
Texaco

It's a wonder why they live here
Got sand in their boots and dust in their ears
Talkin' bout how there's gold in that ground
They spend 24/7 trying to suck it all out

With their shotguns a swingin'
And the whiskey drinkin'
Cowboys livin' there

When you're running through that desert
Got your eyes searching around
For the light of the city rising
Like a fire across the ground
Your heart it starts to racin' when you see that
Texaco

Well the jack rabbit and the rattlesnake know
Cause they've been here since the first one showed
Spending their nights with that old pump jack
Since he left town, guess he ain't never coming back

With his shotguns a swingin'
And whiskey drinkin'
Cowboys livin' there

When you're running through that desert
Got your eyes searching around
For the light of the city rising
Like a fire across the ground
Your heart it starts to racin' when you see that
Texaco

When you're running through that desert
Got your eyes searching around
For the light of the city rising
Like a fire across the ground
Your heart it starts to racin' when you see that
Texaco... Station

It's a thousand miles from nowhere
Got to drive forever just to get there
