Lyrics

I Miss Minnesota 
Dad, tell me about this maple tree before I hit the road. 
What do all these carving mean?  Some are very, very old. 
You say this symbol points to the Mississippi Source.
This one to Island Lake.
I 35 is near the North Shore
Take it south all the way. 
I miss Minnesota.  Lord knows I'm torn. 
But the truth is if I left you, I would miss you more. 
Oh, I miss Minnesota.  The walks on London Road. 
Spring flowers and the winter storms. 
And Dad, I miss you growing old.
 
I've traveled from the North Star to the Lone Star state. 
But I miss the four seasons.  The leaves here do not change. 
Dad, I want to go back home to be with you, but
I met a guy near the Rio Grande
not very far from the Gulf Coast.  I hope you understand.                        
 
I miss Minnesota.  Lord knows I'm torn. 
But the truth is if I left him, I would miss him more. 
Oh, I miss Minnesota.  The walks on London Road. 
Spring flowers and the winter storms. 
And Dad, I miss you growing old.
 
The Texas sky matches his blue eyes, but mine still long for green. 
He planted me a little Minnesota, a silver maple tree. 
And as I gaze upon its leaves in this relentless Texas heat,
I can hardly believe what I see, it's now baring seeds.
 
I miss Minnesota.  Lord knows I'm torn. 
But the truth is if I left him, I would miss him more. 
Oh, I miss Minnesota.  The falls changing leaves. 
Spring flowers and the winter storms.  And Dad,
You buried by the maple tree.
