Clovis, New Mexico
By Hank Williams Jr.

     G      D         G            D        C                          G  
Well me and Billy, we left Bossier City and decided that we’d head out west
        G        D            G           D    C                D       G
We been east and south but it didn’t work out, we were getting’ nowhere fast
G          D          G            D       C                    G
Me with my guitar and him with his saddle, tryin’ to out do the rest
G         D             G             D                   C           D        G
I sang my heart out and he rides them broncs down, that’s what me and Billy do best
        G          D          G          D          C               G
We took Interstate 20 ‘til we ran out of money at a place just past Abilene
     G         D              G          D             C              D            G
So I sang at a honky tonk and he broke a bad bronc and we bought some gas and some beans
       G           D           G          D        C                  G
With a whole lotta luck and an old pickup truck we made it to New Mexico
   G            D            G           D                  F        C          G 
We pulled up in Clovis and I sure didn’t notice this was as far as I ever would go
  G           D              G        D         C                     G
I needed some strings, Billy wanted a ring, the kind that the Indians make
  G              D             G          D             F             C       G
A voice said “Hello Boys I got silver and turquoise and that’s when I saw her face

Chorus 1:
              C       C/B  Am   D            G
That’s when I noticed      that girl down in Clovis
               F      C             G   
A black haired beauty, she set fire to me
             C   C/B  Am     D               G 
A green eyed lady     in old jeans that were faded
            F                       C                     G
Oh I didn’t notice what happened in Clovis but I call her baby

I asked her with care if she’d like to share her evening with someone like I
I said I ain’t a winner, just a hard livin’ singer, she smiled and said meet me at 9
We ate tacos and talked and then we took a walk in the clean southwestern air
Then we went back to her house, I took my guitar and sang of my joy and despair
She sent me her wine and she helped me write lines to songs that I could not complete
And her eyes seemed to say put that guitar away, there’s something that both of us need
What a beautiful site was her face in the light of the candles there on the wall
And we reached the heights of good love on that night and I hope we never will fall

And I’m glad I noticed that girl down in Clovis
The daughter of a driller, she’s a born thriller
A green eyed lady, kinda wild kinda lazy
I never noticed what happened in Clovis but I call her baby
