Ernest Tubb

Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music. In 1948, he was the first singer to record a hit version of "Blue Christmas", a song more commonly associated with Elvis Presley and his mid-1950s version. Another well-known Tubb hit was "Waltz Across Texas" (1965), which became one of his most requested songs and is often used in dance halls throughout Texas during waltz lessons.

I just come into this bar 
To have a quick one 
Maybe give the bowling game a whirl
Well you sat down next to me 
And in a minute I could see
That you're a complicated kinda girl
You say there's someone home waitin' for you
But you don't really care much if he cares
If you're prayin' for a chance 
Had a really big romance
I don't think I'm the answer to your prayers
'Cause I've got all the heartaches 
I can handle back at home
I got all the pain and sufferin' I can use
While I thank you for your gracious invitation
I'll call you when I'm runnin' short to blues

It's true that you might love me 
More than she does
And we might be a whole lot more than friends
But I might start to love you as much as he does
And then you'd be out looking once again
I've been traveling down 
Love's rocky road a long time
And I guess that I should know a danger sign
So you stay here try to drown your trouble 
And I guess I'll go walking home to mine
'Cause I've got all the heartaches
I'll call you when I'm runnin' out of blues
