Big D (Dallas)

JD went to heaven
Lee Harvey went to hell
JR and the Ewings?
there’s no way to tell.
Tom Landry’s still coaching
but it’s a higher game
Barney took retirement
and Big Tex went up in flames
Nick and Joe and Kevin
the Wilson brothers too
They all left long ago
‘cause nothing much to do
If you become a star
look back with no regrets
If you’re still hanging ‘round
then you ain’t made it yet
Ain’t nothing very big
in what they call Big D
Dallas ain’t the who it used to be.

Cowboys left long ago
The Cotton’s gone away
The rivalry’s still hanging
But it’s a single day.
The great fair of Texas
is mostly ‘bout the dogs
Uptown and further north
are mostly ‘bout the snobs
If you come to visit
it’s likely just to shop
Tourists just want to see
where Kennedy got shot
What they only tell you
in visit bureau words
All the things worth seeing
are mostly in the burbs
Ain’t nothing very big
in what they call Big D
Dallas ain’t the where it used to be.

    People keep on coming
    to the metroplex
    But soon they’re disappointed;
    it’s not what they expect.
    People keep on coming
    but I don’t know why
    maybe it’s that TV show
    that filled their head with lies.
    They hope to find the west
    but here’s reality,
    this Dallas never was
    the what it used to be.
    Yes, Dallas never was
    the what it used to be.

There’s no ten gallon hats
no horses on parade
no boots with silver spurs
to scoot the night away
There aren’t that kind of dudes
just men in skinny jeans
with dollars in their eyes
all chasing the same scheme
It’s just a little east
from where the West begins
But it’s right at the start
of where the good times end
Not much is going on
And nothing much to see
Don’t expect much to change
It’s almost guaranteed.
Ain’t nothing very big
in what they call Big D
Dallas ain’t the what it used to be.
Dallas never was the what it used to be.
