Lyrics

Got a call from a friend about a friend
It’s news no one ever wants to hear
It hit me like a punch, it took my breath
He was just getting into his best years
Yes, something like that’ll shake you up
Wake you up

So I stopped off at a Texaco
Bought a Slim Jim and a Coke
Parked out by the water just to watch that river flow
Grabbed my guitar from the back seat
Wrote a song just for me
And I sung it for the blue sky
And a couple live oak trees
I thought of home, grabbed my phone from my pocket
And I called mama

Well it rang a couple times and she picked up
I can always hear her smile when I call
I just called to tell you that I loved you
I was missin’ you and dad, and home, that’s all
I got to really thinkin’ this mornin’
‘Bout what’s important

So I stopped off at a Texaco
Bought a Slim Jim and a Coke
Parked out by the water just to watch that river flow
Grabbed my guitar from the back seat
Wrote a song just for me
And I sung it for the blue sky
And a couple live oak trees
The thought of home, grabbed my phone from my pocket
And I called mama

And from now on
I ain’t gonna wait so long

To stop off at a Texaco
Buy a Slim Jim and a Coke
Park out by the water just to watch that river flow
Grab my guitar from the back seat
Write a song just for me
I’ll sing it for the blue sky
And a couple live oak trees
And think of home, grab my phone from my pocket
Instead of saying tomorrow I’m gonna
And I call mama
And I call mama
