Fair to Midland
Fare to Midland is all that I need If I had fair to Midland, I'd take the first seat On a fast train, bus, or plane Which ever proved the quickest way for me I left her in Midland near one last promise I couldn't keep To chase a future paved with fools Small county roads don't ever reach But for every cloudless mile, the sun has shone There's been a hundred nights alone, at least The shame is how it took so long To figure out, fare to Midland don't come cheap My eyes keep lonely thoughts, reminding me With every dusty truck that I see I'm only closer to how far away can be And all the time that's left is an eternity Now to make myself west Texas bound The fare to Midland is all I need Fare to Midland is all that I need If I had fare to Midland, I'd take the first seat
