George Jones — It Hurts As Much In Texas lyrics

Hey, we broke up in Nashville on a cold and rainy night
My tears mixed with the cold rain drops as she walked out of sight
So I put Nashville in my rear view mirror and headed south
'Cause I thought the girls in San Antone would knock her memory out.

But it hurts as much in Texas as it did in Tennessee
Lone star lonely, down and blue is what they're callin' me
I thought these Texas dance halls nights would kill my misery?
But it hurts as much in Texas as it did in Tennessee.

--- Instrumental ---

My heart still lives in Nashville with the girl I long to be
I'm tryin' to forget the way that she broke up with me
I thought that I could two step her sweet memory from my mind
But she still waltzes through my dreams and wakes me up at night.

But it hurts as much in Texas as it did in Tennessee
Lone star lonely, down and blue is what they're callin' me
I thought these Texas dance halls nights would kill my misery?
But it hurts as much in Texas as it did in Tennessee.

Yeah, it hurts as much in Texas as it did in Tennessee...
