Song Meaning
Verse 1
I wish I was in Austin
In a chilly parlor bar
Drinkin' Mad Dog Margaritas
And not carin' where you are
But here I sit in Dublin
Just rollin' cigarettes
Holdin' back and chokin' back
The shakes with every breath
Verse 2
Forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There's no need to forgive me
For thinkin' what I thought
I loved you from the git go
I'll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish steps
The day you said goodbye
Verse 3
I am just a poor boy
Work's my middle name
If money was a reason
I would not be the same
Verse 4
I'll stand up and be counted
I'll face up to the truth
I'll walk away from trouble
But I can't walk away from you
Verse 5
Forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There's no need to forgive me
For thinkin' what I thought
I loved you from the git go
I'll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish steps
The day you said goodbye
Verse 6
I have been to Fort Worth
I have been to Spain
I have been to proud
To come in out of the rain
Verse 7
I have seen the David
I've seen the Mona Lisa too
I have heard Doc Watson
Play Columbus Stockade Blues
Verse 8
Forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There's no need to forgive me
For thinkin' what I thought
I loved you from the git go
I'll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish steps
The day you said goodbye
Verse 9
I wish I was in Austin
In a chilly parlour bar
Drinkin' Mad Dog Margaritas
And not carin' where you are
