Last night I had me a nightmare.
Dreamed that Texas was burning down.
And all those people, I'd grown up to love
Were leavin' town.

So I cried oh-whoa Moses, bring a flood from the red, Red sea.
Bring back towns van zandt and my heroes back to me.
'Cause I can play these songs but it ain't the way they do.
Ain't the way they do.
I had a Nightmare, a Nightmare, it was a Nightmare.

Buddy Holly, was riding on the wind.
Stevie Ray, he was too.
But when there star comes tumblin to the ground.
Not a thing the king's horses, and all the king's men could do.
Me, I just got this ol' barstool.
And man it's burning me down. (burnin' me down)
Just like a brushfire, that burns all through the night.
One of these days I'm gonna, one of these days I'm gonna burn on out.

So I cried oh-whoa Moses, bring a flood from the red, Red sea.
Bring back towns van zandt and my heroes back to me.
'Cause I can play these songs but it ain't the way they do.
Ain't the way they do.
I had a Nightmare, a Nightmare, it was a Nightmare.

I had a Nightmare, a Nightmare, oooo-ooh.
