It's a bloody Mary morning 
Baby left me without warning
 Sometime in the night 
So I'm flying down to Houston  Forgetting her, the nature of my flight 

As we taxi toward the runway 
With the smog and haze reminding me
Of how I feel
Just a country boy who's learning 
That the pitfalls of the city are extremely real

All the nightlife and the parties  Temptation and deceit 
The order of the day
We'll it's a bloody Mary morning 
And I'm leaving baby
 Somewhere in L.A.


Our golden jet is airborne 
And flight #50 cuts a path across the morning sky
And a voice comes through the speaker  Reassuring us flight #50 is the way to fly
And a hostess takes our order 
Coffee, tea, or something stronger to start off the day
It's a bloody Mary morning 
And I'm leaving baby somewhere in L.A.
