It Hurts as Much in Texas (As It Did in Tennessee)

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album Friends in High Places (1991).

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

My heart still lives in Nashville with the girl I long to see
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
