(Walt Meskell, Tim Martin)
Just another Texas bus stop
On my seventh cup a' coffee
Gotta date in Colorado
I've seen enough of fairgrounds

Is the light that's in the eyes
Yeah, the only light I wanna see
An' the open door that she'll be standin' in
Driver says, "It's time, folks"
Just me, a nun, two cowboys
Been twenty-seven hours
An' over my right shoulder

Is the light that's in the eyes
Yeah, the only light I wanna see
An' the open door that she'll be standin' in
Goin' on forty hours
But it's only just a walk, now
I've seen too many bus stops
But the spotlight only matters

Is a light that's in the eyes
Yeah, the only light I wanna see
An' the open door that she'll be standin' in
[Fade out]
Is the light that's in the eyes
Yeah, the only light I wanna see
An' the open door that she'll be standin' in
'Cause the only light I wanna see
Of the woman waitin' up for me again
