But all my ex's live in Texas, And that's why I hang my hat in Tennessee. Rosanna's down in Texarkana Wanted me to push her broom, And sweet Ilene's in Abilene; She forgot I hung the moon. And Allison in Galveston Somehow lost her sanity, And Dimples who now lives in Temple's Got the law lookin’ for me.
Why:
George mentions various cities in Texas where his ex's live: Texarkana, Abilene, Galveston and Temple.
