MILES AND MILES OF TEXAS

I WAS BORN IN LOUISIANA DOWN ON THE OLD BAYOU
RAISED ON SHRIMP AND CATFISH AND MUMMY'S GOOD GUMBO
I GOT THAT RAMBLING FEVER SAID GOOD BYE TO MA AND PA
CROSSED THAT OLD RED RIVER AND THIS IS WHAT I SAW:

I SAW MILES AND MILES OF TEXAS
ALL THE STARS UP IN THE SKY
I SAW MILES AND MILES OF TEXAS
GONNA LIVE THERE TILL I DIE,

I RODE UP TO A COWTOWN, THE CRADLE OF THE WEST
JUST A SKINNY COWBOY, GONNA TELL YOU IT'S THE BEST
I MET A TEXAS BEAUTY, GOT FRIENDLY WITH HER PA
I LOOKED INTO HER BIG BLUE EYES AND THIS IS WHAT I SAW:

I SAW MILES…

I STARTED TAMING BRONCOS, RODE EVERY RODEO
UNTIL I MET A ROUGH ONE, HIS NAME WAS DEVIL JOE
I GRABBED HOLD OF HIS BRIDLE TO RIDE THIS OLD OUTLAW
HE THREW ME FROM THE SADDLE, AND THIS IS WHAT I SAW:

I SAW MILES…
