LYRIC

I'm Gonna Leave Old Texas

I’m gonna leave old Texas now
They’ve got no place for the long-horned cow
They’ve plowed and fenced all over the range
And the people there, they’re all so strange

I’ll take my horse and away I’ll go
I’ll turn my face down to Mexico
And so my friends, I bid adieu
I’m a better man for just a-knowin’ of you
I’m a better man for just a-knowin’ of you
