On my way to Italy from the Gulf of Mexico 
Riding on a tanker, feeling mighty low
My good gal's behind me, no loving for so long
I'm going back to Texas, for that's where I belong

Riding on a tanker, feeling mighty low
My good gal's behind me, no loving for so long
I'm going back to Texas, for that's where I belong

I could get so blue out on the sea
But I'll bet you after all this grieving 
Its that good old Texas soil for me

On my way to Italy from the Gulf of Mexico 
Riding on a tanker, feeling mighty low
My good gal's behind me, no loving for so long
I'm going back to Texas, for that's where I belong
