  • Lyrics: Austin© (I Always Thought That You’d Come Back to) Floyd Tolston May 17, 2006 (Chorus) I always thought that you’d come back to Austin And I’d hold you in my loving arms again Yes, I always thought that you’d come back to Austin And things could be the way that they had been. 1) Life don’t always work out the way you planned it. And you don’t always end up where you thought you’d be. I learned these (two) facts of life the hard way I learned from you when you couldn’t stay with me. 2) From the cliffs overlooking Lake Travis With your face lighted by the sunsets hue You said you had one chance to go to Nashville One last chance to do the music you want to do (Chorus) *Break* 3) After awhile both of us just stopped calling It seemed like you were always on the road I’ve got your pictures and copies of all your music Just to hear your voice kinda helps me bear my loss (load) 4) I heard the news on the radio this morning Right after they played your lasted song They say you’d been found dead in some motel With some pills and my number on your phone. (Chorus) 5) Reprise Life don’t always work out the way you planned it And you don’t always end up where you want to be You took your one big chance and went to Nashville I wish to God, you’d stayed in Austin with me.
