Memories of East Texas and Gilmer, county seat of Upshur
Looking back and asking myself "what the hell did you let
them break your spirit for?"
You know, their lives ran in circles so small,
they thought they'd seen it all.
And they could not make a place for a girl who'd seen the ocean.

Chorus

Ah, but those memories of East Texas
and those piney green rolling hills
Covered in the springtime with those wild daffodils
Sittin' in those piney woods, playing my guitar
Thinking back on the roads I'd come,
Thinking I had not come that far.

Chorus
