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 just 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, mm-hmm
Take me to Texas Oh, take me to Texas Take me to Texas
