lyrics

Mama always said,
"Keep your wits about you
on the road West."
On the road to the promise land,
take the deepest breath that you can
before you get started.
Count it off, count it down,
3-2-1 that's what you came for.

You swear you're never coming back
to Houston. Oh, Houston.

Feel the cold steel on your wrist,
the blue lights flashing.
There's whiskey on your breath
from a plastic bottle.
But the booze was not the problem,
it was what they found in your pocket.
"Cause you look like a creep.
Any judge would agree.

We don't blame you.
No one blames you.
How could anyone?
We won't take you in.
You're so young.
You're not the only one.
You're getting off this time,
just so long as

You swear you're never coming back
to Houston. Oh, Houston.

Ooh...
They got you.
