This is a true story about my great, great, great uncle, Buck Stone, from Port St. Joe, Florida back in the 1850's. Northwest Florida was the wild west and we had our share of "cracker cowboys", shoot-outs and characters.


Buck Stone shot Whaley in the middle of the chest Laid him out in the streets of old St. Joe He went up to his brother, who was the high sheriff Said brother, I know I've got to go I'm goin' to Texas I'm goin to Texas Chorus: I'm headed out to Texas Set out on my own I leave behind my family and my home I shot the bully Whaley in a fair fight But in the eyes of a lawman that don't make it right I'm goin' to Texas I'm goin' to Texas He saddled up his horse and he headed to the west Half the town was ridin' by his side When he got to Mobile He told them all goodbye Said, when I get to Texas I'll send for my wife I'm goin' to Texas I'm goin' to Texas Chorus: There's a thousand miles of wilderness between Buck and his home In the land where gators crawl and panthers cry He settled down in Texas He sent for his wife But in giving birth to their child, she had died Not goin' to Texas Not goin' to Texas Chorus: repeat last line 3 times
