From the Album-"Texas & Tennessee"

The West Texas Wind


Words and music by Steve Gillette and Charles John Quarto
(c) 1998 Compass Rose Music / Starry Garden, BMI

Something in the West Texas wind
Makin' music with the fences
Makes that compass needle spin
Out where the mysteries begin

Something slippin' by that just won't keep
Ghosts of the Rio Grande
That'll steal you from your sleep
Out in the West Texas wind

Canyon Paladuro
Carved out of the rain
Echoes of vaqueros
Forever to remain

Drawn down from Durango
In a fire-colored sky
Like an ancient hechecero
With instructions for the night

Sometimes I come out here
Like I was meeting an old friend
Something in the West Texas wind
