SHE CAME FROM FORT WORTH (Pat Alger / Fred Koller) Kathy Mattea - 1989 She came from Fort Worth, but Fort Worth couldn't hold her Her dreams were bigger than the Texas sky She's got a one way ticket on the next bus for Boulder And it won't take long to say goodbye She was workin' at a diner just a week ago When a man from Colorado smiled and said hello And he turned her head with stories 'bout a cabin in the trees Where the wind can sing you love songs beneath snowcapped mountain peaks Now she's packed her faded blue jeans and her favourite cowboy boots Left her apron at the diner for someone else to use One last look in the mirror at the girl she used to be Then the driver takes her ticket and she tries to fall asleep She came from Fort Worth, but Fort Worth couldn't hold her Her dreams were bigger than the Texas sky She's got a one way ticket on the next bus for Boulder And it won't take long to say goodbye And somewhere in the long dark night snow began to fall Oh, the world outside was sparklin' white when she heard the driver call "Everyone off now for Boulder and have a real nice day" He was waitin' on the platform and he raised his hand to wave And she offered no resistance as he took her to his cabin And that diner in the distance seemed just like it never happened She came from Fort Worth, but Fort Worth couldn't hold her Her dreams were bigger than the Texas sky She's got a one way ticket on the next bus for Boulder And it won't take long to say goodbye She's got a one way ticket on the next bus for Boulder And it won't take long to say goodbye Bye bye!
