Mexia Pronounced: (Muh-Hay-uh)
Song- Copyright/Todd Michael
Austintatious Music/Ascap Member



A hard-head full of gold-dust, and dreams so well designed;
Did you just forget about, the you, you left behind?
Said you'd make it, and you did, you always had that drive,
But in your eyes the sadness, still managed to survive.

I saw you in the tabloids, all changed from way back then,
So far from Limestone County and those who knew you when.
And such a long way from Mexia... Vickie Lynn---

Just like a wild bluebonnet, you bloomed and then were gone.
Looking back it seems so clear, how could we not have known.
I for one had sometimes hoped, that you might settle down,
Guess you never cared too much, for this old sleepy town.

People point and people judge, like they are without sin,
Oh everyone's a critic, it takes a real thick skin,
And it's a long way from Mexia... Vickie Lynn---

Despite the fame and fortune, your ruby smile revealed,
An ever-present emptiness that could not be concealed.
A Texas-doll too fragile, in pieces on a shelf,
No one could fix the countless cracks or save you from yourself.

I heard the news this evening, it hasn't quite sunk in...
Sweet release, may you find peace, Oh what a ride it's been...

And such a long way from Mexia... Vickie Lynn---

Oh it's a long way from Mexia...


Vickie Lynn---

There was much more to this woman that I fear most people never saw in her eyes. Good dedication to her. Lady J

Heartbreaking, indeed, Todd. Mexia just east of Johnson be known for the tragedy Vickie Lynn's life was and is becoming...powerfully expressed sadness.

I truly feel sorry for her. Her life was nothing but turmoils after turmoils. Money is the root of all evils.

Not really sure when she married her husband of 63 year senior was because she was looking for money; or the fact she was looking for a "father figure" to the extreme, as she has grown up without a father. She lost her father when she was two.

I'm just appalled and upset at all the tabloids was very unfair to her. We hear many things about her which is probably not true. What's a little girl to do when her father/husband dies?

I think she had been dealt with a losing battle in life in all that she had to endure right from the time when she was 2 years old.

I feel sorry for this girl.

I don't think so long as there are courts in the US and the Bahamas that we will ever hear the last of Vickie Lynn. Gads, what a mess she was in life and in death. I really feel for her poor innocent baby...if ever there was a need to license people to become parents, Anna Nicole was a walking example. This is a great piece Todd. Good luck getting it recorded and played! Michelle

This is very well-written. She truly was an enigma. May she rest in peace.
