Asleep at the Wheel Lyrics

Asleep at the Wheel Lyrics for Don’t Go There

In the Texas town of San Antonio
Is a little church they call the Alamo
The story tellers say Ozzy Osborne stopped one day
All dressed up in women’s lingerie

I don’t know if the guy was drinking beer
Jack or beam it’s not exactly clear
But when he whipped it out
The ghost of Travis gave a shout
Whose message all good Texans still can hear

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
It’s a source of Texas pride
Hell, John Wayne died inside

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
You’ll really piss us off if you go there

When Bowie and Young Crockett made their stand
Colonel Travis drew a line in to the sand
But it’s simply not the same when you try and write your name
That bloody rocker must have mush for brains

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
It’s a simple Texas mission
Not a pot for you to piss in

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
You’ll really piss us off if you go there

Music never rilled us
The groupies or the jets
The show on television
Or the ratings you might get

The thing that drove us plum insane
Was when you drained that old main vain
Took your snake and let it go
No, we won’t forget the Alamo

The eyes of Texas are upon you

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
It’s a symbol of our state
Not a place to urinate

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
You’ll really piss us off if you go there

Don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there

How ya like it then
If we piss upon Big Ben?

Don’t go there, don’t go there
You really shouldn’t go there
You’ll really piss us off if you go there

Ah, you know Sharon I got me ****
Cloths off put in the roadie’s rooms
So I couldn’t get out
So I just took a walk around town, you know

And **** the next thing I **** know
I had to take me a piss, you know
And there was this old wall and I thinking
What the ****, I’ll **** piss on the wall

Then all of a sudden
I’m in jail, you know **** police
Got me down and ah
Sharon, Sharon

About Asleep at the Wheel

Western swing is still alive and kickin’ with the country notes of Asleep at the Wheel. The 9-time Grammy Award winning group has delivered the old time country swing sound for concert goers everywhere.  Asleep at the Wheel lyrics are available for a large number of songs.

Their humble beginnings were based in Paw Paw, West Virginia and since the formation of Asleep at the Wheel in 1970, more than twenty albums have created a flow of singles on Billboard country charts. Peaking at number 10, their 1975 single, “The Letter that Johnny Walker Read,” became the most famous.

Ray Benson and Lucky Oceans or Reuben Gosfield as he was born, co-founded the group and the team began opening for such greats as Alice Cooper and Hot Tuna. Asleep at the Wheel collected awards for their hearth from the Austin Music Awards for being Band of the Year in 2007, Songwriter of the Year for Benson’s contributions, Country Band of the Year, Record Producer that year, thanks to Benson’s efforts, and Acoustic Guitar Player of the Year for McQueen’s talents.

The original country swing sound is illuminating the younger folks as well thanks to the Asleep at the Wheel beat and guitar picking, which gives the songs their full, rich sense of what country used to sound like. They aren’t the typical “cry in your beer” group, but a rockin’, cool band that pumps out some good tunes.
