[G] [C] [D] [G] [C]  
The [G]Houston sky was changeless,
we [C]galloped through bluebonnets
I was [G]wrestling with an angel,
you were [D]working [C]on a [G]sonnet
You said, "I believe the seraphim,
will [Em]gather up my pinto
And [Am]carry us away, Jim,
across the [D]San Jacinto

[Em]Shelley and Keats were [G]out in the street,
and [D]even Lord Byron was [Em]leaving for Greece
While back at the Hilton, [G]last but not least,
[D]Milton was holding his [C]sides
Saying, "You [Em]bravos had better be,
[D]ready to fight
Or we'll [Em]never get out of East [Am]Texas, to[D]night
The [Em]trail is long and the [Em6]river is wide,
and my [Am]rid[Am7]e s [D7]here

I was staying at the Westin,
I was [C]playing to a draw
When [G]in walked Charlton Heston,
with the [D]Tablets [C]of the [G]Law
He said, "It's still the Greatest Story",
I said, "[Em]Man, I'd like to stay
But I'm [Am]bound for glory,
I'm [D]on my way
My [G]ride's here[C] [D]
My [G]ride's here[C] [D]
My [G]ride's here[C] [D]
My [G]ride's here[C] [D]
