1st Place
“Running Out Of Texas”
Greg Stielstra
Franklin, Tennessee

Lyric Spotlight Q&A

Racing out of Dallas, headed south on 35
Chasing your taillights through a lonesome Texas night
Running low on second chances and mile marker signs
Trying to catch you
I
ve got to catch you

But Im running out of Texas
Running out of time to make things right
Just a lone star left to wish on
And if I wish that wish I might
Make Texas bigger
Big enough for two
Because I
m running out of Texas
Running after you

At Austins city limits lets give our love an encore
Turn
round before we leave the stage and play a little more
If I catch you by San Antonio, we could make a stand
Fighting for our love
I
ll fight for our love

But Im running out of Texas
Running out of time to make things right
Just a lone star left to wish on
And if I wish that wish I might
Make Texas bigger
Big enough for two
Because I
m running out of Texas
Running after you

Buenos Dias Mexico
¡Hola! Rio Grande
And that line you drew for me to cross in the desert sand

Were both running out of Texas
Running into morning
s golden light
No more lone star left to wish on
But if you get the chance you might
Check your rear view mirror
You
ll see a love thats true
You
ll see me running out of Texas
Running after you

Im running out of Texas
Running after you
