Texas Tea
Recorded by Leroy Van Dyke
Written by Sacha Distel and Jack Reardon

G Am D7
I was just a poor boy who lived on forty acres of bad land
C D7 G D7
I remember how she laughed the day I asked Joanna for her hand
G Am D7
She called me a ploughboy and said she couldn't love the likes of me
C D7 G D7
Back then we didn't know that I would soon discover Texas Tea

G Am D7
I told her I loved her and I would work my fingers to the bone
C D7 G D7
But Joanna wanted wealth and servants and a mansion for a home
G Am D7
And I was heartbroken Joanna didn't want me comin' round
C D7 G D7
Back then we didn't know about the Texas Tea that bubbled neath my ground

G Am D7
Where once stood a cabin I live in a southern mansion now
C D7 G D7
And I gaze at the oil wells that stand on the ground I used to plow
G Am D7
Now there's someone comin' I think it's Joanna that I see
C D7 G D7
And I haven't seen her since back before I found my Texas Tea

G Am D7
You're welcome Joanna it's always good to see an old old friend
C D7 G D7
Yes I still remember I loved you and I begged you for your hand
G Am D7
But I'm just a ploughboy and you couldn't love the likes of me
C D7 G D7
So goodbye Joanna I've got to see about my Texas Tea

C D7 G
Goodbye Joanna I've got to see about my Texas Tea
