Ruston Kelly
Big Brown Bus
[Verse 1]
Caught a big brown bus heading south out of San Antonio
In a grey suitcase, I packed up everything I owned
Sun's coming up while the bus tires sighed and that highway moaned
Fell asleep and I dreamed that I was king of the Texas rodeo

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm getting back to it now
Slowly, I'm gaining ground

[Chorus]
Oh
Oh mercy, mercy send your angels
Oh, damned 'cause I'm leaving it all in a cloud of dust
On a big brown bus
All across Texas
On a big brown bus

[Verse 2]
All the lights over Juarez are hanging orange and low
And I think of buying some dexagen in Mexico
But I'm broke anyways
So I'm just gonna stay and stick out the ride
With a head full of blood, a mouth full of sand
'Cause my throat is too dry
And I might die on this highway
Part of me wishes I would

[Chorus]
Oh
Oh mercy, mercy send your angels
Oh, damned 'cause I'm leaving it all in a cloud of dust
On a big brown bus
All across Texas
On a big brown bus
Yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm getting back to it now
Slowly, when I'm gaining ground

[Chorus]
Oh
Oh mercy, mercy send your angels
Oh, damned 'cause I'm leaving it all in a cloud of dust
On a big brown bus
All across Texas
On a big brown bus
All across Texas
On a big brown bus
Oh, on a big brown bus
