  • There's a bullet in the heart tonight in the heart of Texas
    Shout it to the Dallasites we are rolling home
    They shot an angel in mid-flight and now she won't protect us
    Shout it to the bedlamites we are westward ho

    Pray the holy war is ending
    Like in the films of Hollywood
    And the angels are descending (important important)
    Like Koresh had said
    They would before too long
    Sing a Lone Star song

    They had him nailed up to a T with a T for Texas
    His disciples with artillery they held the fort inside
    And by the time the story broke down at Dealey Plaza
    We've already caught the smoke read the TV guide

    Pray the holy war is ending (ending)
    Like the films of Hollywood
    And the choppers are descending (easy words easy words)
    Like MA Reno said
    They would before too long
    Sing a Lone Star song

    Lone Star song of the south
    Words that can't help
    But escape my mouth
    When they bring down the house
    Day upon day
    Day upon day
    Day upon day

    Ooh ooh ooh

    Pray the holy war is ending (ending)
    Like the films of the Hollywood
    And the trumpet's blast is blending
    With the crack of burning
    Wood before too long
    Sing a Lone Star song
    Lone Star song
    Lone Star
    Lone Star song
    Sing a Lone Star song
    Lone Star easy words come on come on Writer/s: Grant Phillips

  • Paul from Americait's about the raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco TX that ended in a fiery blaze killing everybody inside, men women and 25 children because Ma Reno (like gangster, Ma Barker) came collecting that pound of flesh for the Feds
  • Michela from BbThe entire song is about Texas (The Lone Star state) and the dark halo of mystery surrounding it, from Kennedy to Koresh. Any idea on who the "angel in mid-flight" is?
