​Down In Texas

This song is by Calvin Russell and appears on the album Soldier (1992) and on the live album Le voyageur (1993).

It's the land of soul
Rock and Roll
The home of the blues
Pure country too
It's the hallowed ground
All around

It's full of black hippies
Rednecks and Mexes
Most of my friends stay

Way way down in Texas

In the land of musical delight
Funky days and starry nights
Way down in the central south
That's still the land of Hush Yo Mouth
Brothers and the sisters too
They get down and boogaloo
The place is still way back to see
Like the end of the nineteenth century
But you better watch your step there son
The laws are still Draconians

Way way down
Down in Texas

Georgia's child is goin' wild
And don't you think it's so absurd
Let's grab Quayle by the tail
Then we can give Bush the bird
Say it's simple as ABC
Stand up for Democracy
Republicrats and demagogs
I saw Onward Through The Fog

Way way down
Down in Texas

It's the land of soul
Rock and Roll
The home of the blues
Pure country too
It's the hallowed ground
All around
It's full of black hippies
Rednecks and Mexes
Most of my friends stay
Down in Texas

Way way down
Down in Texas

We cannot afford no more
Of America's so-called drug-war
Don't you think it's mighty queer
How they push cigarettes and beer
Afraid of herbs afraid of cid
His ego loves to hate his Id
It's too complex to catalog
I saw Onward Through The Fog

Way way down
Down in Texas

Way way down
Down in Texas
