​Take Me To Texas

This song is by George Strait and appears on the album Cold Beer Conversation (2015).

Take me to Texas
Two hundred years ago
Where a pride rose from the ashes of San Jacinto
It still beats in every heart
Like a battle cry
Where I was born, where I was raised, so when I die

Take me to Texas
On the open range
The Rio Grande is in my veins
It's heaven there
And so my prayer
Is that you'll take me anywhere in Texas
The only home I know
I'm a child of the Alamo
And the Yellow Rose
So when I go

Take me to Texas
Where my daddy worked
Where his blood and sweat and tears are still in that red dirt
Wild Palominos run
Cowboys are kings
And if I stray too far, I'll let my Lone Star dreams

Take me to Texas
On the open range
The Rio Grande is in my veins
It's heaven there
And so my prayer
Is that you'll take me anywhere in Texas
The only home I know
I'm a child of the Alamo
And the Yellow Rose
So when I go
Take me to Texas

There's something in the sky
And in your momma's eyes
So even if you try to move away
You'll end up on some road somewhere
With your thumb up in the air
When they ask you where you're headed, you'll say

Take me to Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antone
Houston, Laredo, Galveston
Or Austin, maybe Abilene
The closest thing I've ever seen
To Heaven's the Gulf of Mexico
I'm a child of the Alamo
And the Yellow Rose
So when I go
Take me to Texas

Mhmmm
Take me to Texas
Oh, take me to Texas
Take me to Texas
