​Texas Love Song

This song is by Slaid Cleaves and appears on the album Still Fighting the War (2013).

For you I'd give up all my time
Searching for the perfect rhyme
And this is one that certainly perplexes
For you I would spend all my days
Thinkin' up all the crazy ways
I love you even more than I love Texas

You got Bellaire class and Dallas style
Austin soul and a Luckenbach smile
For you I'd trade my truck in for a Lexus
You smell as sweet as the piney woods
I'd marry you if I thought I could
I love you even more than I love Texas

You're the barb on my wire
The spark in my campfire
There's no brighter star in all the multiplexes
I love this state, you know I do
But the best thing in this state is you
I love you even more than I love Texas

Your wit's as sharp as a prickly pear
The sun shines in your golden hair
Your smile hits me right in the solar plexus
Skin as soft as early morning rain
Temper like a gulf coast hurricane
I love you even more than I love Texas

From the Mucky Duck to the Broken Spoke
You know this state like an old cowpoke
You know where all the tastiest Tex-Mex is
You got Mattson on the radio
Playing Robert Earl and Billy Joe
I love you even more than I love Texas

You're the barb on my wire
The spark in my campfire
Let's head out west where nobody can text us
I promise you I'll never cheat
Or you can throw me out in the old mesquite
I love you even more than I love Texas
And if you make me leave this state
I'll curse but I won't hesitate
'Cause I love you even more than I love Texas
