Last night I had me a nightmare
I dreamed that Texas was burnin' down, burnin' down.
And all the old people I'd grown up to love
Were leaving town.

So I cried "Oh Moses, bring a flood from the Red Red Sea
Bring back Towns Van Zandt and my heroes back to me.
'Cause I can play their songs but it ain't the way they do,
It ain't the way they do."

I had a nightmare, a nightmare, it was a nightmare.

Now Buddy Holly was ridin' on the wind.
Stevie Ray well he was too.
And when their star came tumbling to the ground
Wasn't a thing all the king's horses and all the king's men could do.

Me I just got my old barstool.
Man it's burnin' me down, it's burnin' me down.
Just like a brushfire that burns on through the night
One of these days how it's going
One of these days I'm gonna' burn on out.

So I cried "Oh Moses, bring a flood from the Red Red Sea
Bring back Towns Van Zandt and my heroes back to me.
'Cause I can play their songs but it ain't the way they do,
It ain't the way they do."

I had a nightmare, a nightmare, it was a nightmare.
I had a nightmare, a nightmare
