TEXAS TEA (Ben Peters) Dee Mullins - 1969 I was just a poor boy who lived on forty acres of bad land I remember how she laughed the day I asked Joanna for her hand She called me a ploughboy and said she couldn't love the likes of me Back then we didn't know that I would soon discover Texas Tea I told her I loved her and I would work my fingers to the bone But Joanna wanted wealth and servants and a mansion for her own And I was heartbroken, Joanna didn't want me comin' round Back then we didn't know about the Texas Tea that bubbled neath my ground Where once stood a cabin, I live in a southern mansion now And I gaze at the oil wells that stand on the ground I used to plough Now there's someone comin', I think it's Joanna that I see And I haven't seen her since back before I found my Texas Tea You're welcome Joanna, it's always good to see an old, old friend Yes, I still remember I loved you and I begged you for your hand But I'm just a ploughboy and you couldn't love the likes of me So goodbye, Joanna, I've got to see about my Texas Tea So goodbye, Joanna, I've got to see about my Texas Tea So goodbye, Joanna, I've got to see about my Texas Tea (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2012)
