So Much for San Antonio

She was almost famous twenty years ago
She’ll tell you of her story if you give up your last smoke
Somewhere down in Texas, when she was on the road,
She met a man with promises much greater than her own
She was so young and looking for someone
When he took her by the hand

And the sunset seemed so beautiful
Til the oasis turned to a mirage
Cause the man with all the promises
Didn’t keep even a single one
So much for San Antonio

Spent her whole life working, was all she’d ever known,
And every night she’d kneel to pray that he’d be coming home
But every morning, she’d see it, in the eyes of a son now grown,
That Daddy’s just another story that his mama told
She was so young and looking for someone
When he turned around and ran

But the sunset seemed so beautiful
Til the oasis turned to a mirage
Cause the man with all the promises
Didn’t keep even a single one
So much for San Antonio

Something tells her he ain’t coming back,
But something’s more than she’d of ever had

But the sunset seemed so beautiful
Til the oasis turned to a mirage
Cause the man with all the promises
Didn’t keep even a single one
So she said so much for San Antonio
