LYRIC

Here Comes Another I Love Texas Song

I could sing you songs of love
And songs of hearts so true
Songs that make you wanna dance
And songs for when you’re blue
Songs of hope and glory
Songs to see you through
But the bestest song I’ll ever sing
Is this song I’ll sing for you

Here comes another I Love Texas song
Seems to me if you love Texas
You can’t do no wrong
An’ if you’ve been away for just one day
You’ve been away too long
Here comes another I Love Texas song

Billy Bob back in the badlands
Dodgin’ from the deputy’s gun
Tradin’ shots with the sheriff
He’s tired o’ life on the run
Low on ammunition
Knowin’ he’d have to hang
As an act of sweet contrition
He rocked back on his heels and sang

Here comes another I Love Texas song
Seems to me if you love Texas
You can’t do no wrong
An’ if you’ve been away for just one day
You’ve been away too long
Here comes another I Love Texas song

Took sweet Sue to the square dance
We danced the dosey doe
?Allemande left to your corner
We sashayed ‘round the floor?
I said, “Come out in the moonlight
There’s a question in my heart”
She threw her arms around me
And said, “Before we start…”

Here comes another I Love Texas song
Seems to me if you love Texas
You can’t do no wrong
An’ if you’ve been away for just one day
You’ve been away too long
Here comes another I Love Texas song

Out in the blue Pacific
?In the middle o’ World War Two
?John Wayne on Iwo Jima
The whole U.S. Cavalry too
?Climbing up Suribachi,
Plantin’ the flag in the sand
?Then just before they shot the Duke
?He issued his last command?
Now listen up, pilgrim

Here comes another I Love Texas song
Seems to me if you love Texas
You can’t do no wrong
An’ if you’ve been away for just one day
You’ve been away too long
Here comes another I Love Texas song

Texas has its twisters
An’ Texas has its droughts
When hard times come to Texas?
There’s folks’ll help you out
?Where seldom is heard a discouraging word?
From a true-born Texan’s mouth,
Now everyone who’s a loyal son?
Lift up your head and shout

Here comes another I Love Texas song
Seems to me if you love Texas
You can’t do no wrong
An’ if you’ve been away for just one day
You’ve been away too long
Here comes another I Love Texas song
