My home's in Texas
What am I doin' up here?
My home's in Texas
What am I doin' up here?
Yes, my good corn whiskey
Baby, an women brought me here

Well, I'm goin' back to Texas
Just to ride this Texas train
I'm goin' back to Texas


Just to ride this Texas train
I'm goin' to Texas
Just to be on the devil's range

I love, Texas
That is a place for me
I love, Texas
That is a place for me
I got a sweet gal there
That means so much to me

'A-pick 'em Mr. Maceo'

(Piano and guitar)

When I left Texas
Well, she begged me not to go
When I left Texas
Well, she begged me not to go
But if I ever get back to Texas
Love, I won't be bad no mo'.
