I'm glad if you're happy to see me
But I don't care if you're not

To those who don't believe my story
That walkin' hundreds of miles to here's how I got

To be here in Texarkana
And play my music on this here stage

Or that I got my edumacation
From some of the best schools in the USA

Or maybe you don't like my music
That I write so simple and basic

Or you wish I'd play more rock n country
Or whatever you call that shit

Spoken:
These here words were inspired by a newspaper editor I called asking for a story while hitchhiking around the state to my gigs.
I told him I had recently made my way back to Texas from LA, and that soon I'd be walkin' my way to Texarkana to play.
The man told me that after thorough research he didn't believe my story, or that I was even educated at all.
Well, I found out he didn't do the research he said he had, and soon after that I wrote this here song.

I'm glad if you're happy to see me
But I don't care if you're not

To those who don't believe my story
That walkin' hundreds of miles to here's how I got

To be here in Texarkana
And play my music on this here stage

Or that I got my edumacation
From some of the best schools in the USA

Or maybe you don't like my music
That I write so simple and basic

Or you wish I'd play more rock n country
Or whatever you call that shit

I'm glad if you're happy to see me
But I don't care if you're not
