Texas That's where I
It seems to me
Texas Lonesome star
Shine on
The big country
Texas With open skies
And you
For company
Texas Oh prairie rose
How happy
I should be
Hey hey You can take it from me
Hey hey I'll be coming, you'll see
Hey hey Oh what a state to be in
Hey hey You're tantalising me
Texas I will compose
In fancy rhyme
Or just plain prose
Texas A song of praise
To you
Prairie rose
Texas Though I'm not sure
I can explain
Your strange allure
Texas Prairie rose -
A crown of thorns
A scented flower
Hey hey I'd better leave right away
Hey hey I can hear you calling me
Prairie rose
