Country Music/Country Song Title

Question
I am trying to find the name to a song that I believe is from the 80s or 90s and has the lyric "shes like a tumbleweed" in part of the chorus but I cant remember anything else like the tune or the male country artist that sang it.

Answer
Hi Becky!  I think maybe the song you're looking for is "Texas Tornado" by Tracy Lawrence, released in April 1995.  In the chorus is the line "I'm like a tumbleweed in a wild west Texas wind..."  I've copied the lyrics for you below and a link to the song.  Hope this helps!

You called me up from Amarillo,
Said you were comin' to town,
I thought I'd like to tell you hello,
And drive an old friend around,
I pulled up to the airport,
Confident and cool,
But when you stepped off that plane,
I knew I was your fool,

(chorus)
My little Texas tornado,
Blowin' me away again,
I swore it wouldn't happen again,
But I looked at you and then,
I'm like a tumbleweed,
In a wild west Texas wind,
You're blowin' me away,
again,

You're lyin' with me in Atlanta,
Such a beautiful life,
You play me like a piano,
I'll always let you get by,
I know I'll go through hell girl,
When you find someone else,
But right now I'm in heaven,
And I can't help myself,

(chorus)
My little Texas tornado,
Blowin' me away again,
I swore it wouldn't happen again,
But I looked at you and then,
I'm like a tumbleweed,
In a wild west Texas wind,
You're blowin' me away,
again

I'm like a tumbleweed,
In a wild west Texas wind,
You're blowin' me away,
(fade)

I can answer just about any question about lyrics or the artists who recorded the songs--80s and 90s country especially. I don't watch many new videos, but the older the video question, the more likely I am to be able to answer it.

Experience

I've been a country music fan for all of my 20+ years! I somehow have a knack for being able to remember all the words to all the songs (and who sang them for the most part) even though I can't carry a tune to save my life!

Education/Credentials
Juris Doctor. (So if I can't remember an answer off the top of my head, I have the research skills to figure it out!)
