Pat green - I like texas

Well, from Dalhart to Del Rio
And out El Paso way
I've been doin' fine on Houston time
When the sun sets on the Copano Bay
From way up where the Red River flows
On down to the Rio Grand
I was born a little native Texican
And I'm proud to say that I am

[chorus]
Yeah well, I like Texas
Ain't it fine here
I like to pick my guitar down at Luckenback
And drink that Shinerbock beer
Yeah well, I like Texas
Man, there ain't no doubt
Just listen to me cause I know what I'm talkin' about

Well, there's old dancehalls and little cafes
Where you can get a taste of the Lone Star State
You can strap on boots and have yourself a laugh or two
Well, there's no line dancing, just straight romancing
That Hill Country love is what I fancy
The streams running clear and the skies they are so blue


[chorus]
Yeah well, I like Texas
Ain't it fine here
I like to pick my guitar down at ole Gruene Hall
And drink that Shinerbock beer
Yeah well, I like Texas
Man, there ain't no doubt
Just listen to me cause I know what I'm talkin' about

Well, it's a two day old burrito
One lukewarm beer to go
On the Sunday side of a roadtrip weekend
Lordy, I was feeling so low
When somebody flipped on the jukebox
And I heard ole Bob Wills say
"Won't you Stay all night, stay a little longer"
So I held on another day

[chorus]
Yeah well, I like Texas
On a Saturday night
Just let me listen to ole Gary P. Nunn
And everything will be just right, down here in Texas
Man, there ain't no doubt
Just listen to me cause, I know what I'm talkin' about
Yeah, just listen to me cause I know what I'm talkin' about

Yeah well, I like Texas
Well ain't it fine here
I like to pick my guitar down at Stubb's BBQ
And drink that Shinerbock beer
Yeah well, I like Texas
Man, there ain't no doubt
Just listen to me cause I know what I'm talkin' about
I said, just listen to me cause I know what I'm talkin' about
