Eb                                       Cm
This old porch is like a big old red and white Hereford bull
Ab
Standing under a mesquite tree
Bb
Out in Agua Dulce
       Eb
And he just keeps on playing hide and seek
Cm
With that hot August sun
Ab
Just A-sweatin' and A-pantin'
          Bb
Cause his work is never done
             Eb                               Cm
And this old porch is like a steaming, greasy plate of enchiladas
     Ab
With lots of cheese and onions
      Bb
And a guacamole salad
            Eb
And you can get'em down at the LaSalle Hotel
Cm
In old downtown
      Ab
With iced tea and a waitress
              Bb
And she will smile every time
             Eb 
And this old porch is the Palace walk-in
       Cm
On the main street of Texas
Ab
That's never seen the day
   Bb
Of G and R and Xs
           Eb
With that '62 poster
       Cm
That's almost faded down
      Ab
And a screen without a picture
      Bb
Since Giant came to town
             Eb                         
And this old porch is like a weathered, gray-haired
Cm
Seventy years of Texas
Ab
Who's doing all he can
       Bb
Not to give in to the city
       Eb
And he always takes the rent late
   Cm
So long as I run his cattle
      Ab
And he picks me up at dinnertime
       Bb
And I listen to him rattle
             Eb
He says the Brazos still runs muddy
                Cm
Just like she's run all along
          Ab
And there ain't never been no cane to grind
    Bb
The cotton's all but gone
                  Eb
And you know this brand new Chevrolet
            Cm
Hell it was something back in '60
Ab
But now there won't nobody listen to him
Bb
Cause they all think he's crazy
             Eb
And this old porch is just a long time
   Cm
Of waiting and forgetting
Ab
And remembering the coming back
Bb
And not crying about the leaving
    Eb
And remembering the falling down
        Cm
And the laughter of the curse of luck
Ab
    Bb
Who said we'd never get back up
         Eb
This old porch is just a long time
   Cm
Of waiting and forgetting
    Ab
And remembering the coming back
        Bb
And not crying about the leaving
     Eb
And remembering the falling down
        Cm
And the laughter of the curse of luck
Ab
Bb                                 Eb
Who said we'd never get back up
