Pope, Ron - Texas Wildflower Honey Lyrics




She was born in Virginia
She packed her bags and came here
I met her out in the city
It was December last year

She took me home to her apartment
She made me sleep on the couch
At least that first couple hours...
Until she figured me out

And her lips were as sweet
As Texas wildflower honey
And she loved me hard
Whenever she laid me down

And I swear that I burned
'Cause she set me on fire
Always cutting me deep
She was making me bleed
Texas wildflower honey

She took to wearing my jacket
'Cause that winter was cold
I can still smell her perfume
Just like she's holding me close

And people ask if I miss her
I tell 'em it's hard to say
'Cause we weren't made for forever
But we were perfect that way

And her lips were as sweet
As Texas wildflower honey
And she loved me hard
Whenever she laid me down

And I swear that I burned
'Cause she set me on fire
Always cutting me deep
She was making me bleed
Texas wildflower honey

And her lips were as sweet
As Texas wildflower honey
And she loved me hard
Whenever she laid me down

And I swear that I burned
'Cause she set me on fire
Always cutting me deep
She was making me bleed
Texas wildflower honey

Always cutting me deep
She was making me bleed
Texas wildflower honey

    Hey Guys, Figured I'd address your concerns! I'm actually (sort of embarrassingly) borrowing from myself here (and a song I wrote and released before Chris put out that record). I wrote a song called "Goodbye" in 2014...we played it more or less exactly like this when we did it live (even though it was super acoustic on the record)...this is what that sounded like live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvi8YlDSkc4 Anyway, I got bummed that we didn't record it using that more soul inflected palette, so I just took that arrangement and plugged in some new words and a few new chords...but that's where I got my idea from. Stapleton's recording owes more to Etta James "I'd Go Blind" than it does to either David Allan Coe or George Jones' versions of "Tennessee Whiskey" that came before it, so in my opinion, it's probably not the song itself that you're seeing a relationship in, so much as parts of our arrangements. We're both leaning on some classic soul tricks, for sure. In my case, it's not Etta's recording that came to mind; I hear "That's How Strong My Love Is" from Otis Redding in my arrangement (but less emphatic singing because I'm no Otis Redding). So now you know where this comes from. Thanks for listening. -Rp
