Dallas packed her suitcase and drove off in the brand new car I bought her
Made leaving me look easy, I guess she made it look harder
I took her out of Texas when she was just a girl
But Tennessee and me couldn't take Texas out of her

Oh how I wish Dallas was in Tennessee
If I could move Texas east, well she'd be here with me
Then nothing else would come between the two of us
If Dallas was in Tennessee

Well now she's leaving Memphis and everything has left behind her
I hope that golden ring on her hand serves as a reminder
That true love is a treasure, that seldom often found
And you can stay together, there is no common ground
