Mickey Newbury - "If You Ever Get To Houston" lyrics

If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down
And if you find a memory that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down

Cincinnati is a long long way from here
And it gets a little farther with each beer
And if I had a dollar bill for every two bit lounge
That I've been here I would not be here now

So if you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you find a road back home that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down
Yeah if you find a memory that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down

Well just one more song then the lights go out
Someone just dropped a nickel in my mouth
So I'll be dead asleep in back of Richards North Side Lounge
If you ever get to Houston look me down

If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down
Honey if you find a memory that turns your thoughts around
And drops you off in Houston look me down

Whoah If you ever get to Houston look me down
If you ever get to Houston look me down
I'll be dead asleep in back of Richards North Side Lounge
If you ever get to Houston look me down
