​Texas When I Die

This song is by Ed Bruce.

When I die, I may not go to heaven
'Cause I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't, just let me go to Texas
Texas is as close as I've been

New York couldn't hold my attention
Detroit City could not sing my song
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in Dallas
Well, I won't care, at least I'll know I'm home

When I die, I may not go to heaven
'Cause I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't, just let me go to Texas
Texas is as close as I've been

I'd ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
Just to hear Merle Haggard sing a country song
Beer just ain't as cold in old Milwaukee
My body's here, but my soul's in San Antone

When I die, I may not go to heaven
'Cause I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't, just let me go to Texas
Texas is as close as I've been
