There are lots of songs about Texas...it's a big state...lol

Enjoy. As usual comments, corrections, and suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks, Bunny


Take Me Back To Texas


Chorus
Take me back to Texas
Thats where I wanna be
Things havent been the same since I've been gone
Give me bluebells in the garden
And the Cowboys on TV
Its the only place I know as home sweet home

Verse 1
I walked myself to New Orleans ten long years ago
For that greener grass and Bourbon Street sounds
All I got was Missi'ppi mud between my toes
So I knew that I just couldn't hang around

Chorus
Take me back to Texas
Thats where I wanna be
Things havent been the same since I've been gone
Give me bluebells in the garden
And the Cowboys on TV
Its the only place I know as home sweet home

Verse 2
To get my kicks on 66 I stopped in OKC
That oh so pretty city called my name
Tried hard to find my fortune drilling for black gold
But I just didn't get that oilman's game
(So)

Chorus
Take me back to Texas
Thats where I wanna be
Things havent been the same since I've been gone
Give me bluebells in the garden
And the Cowboys on TV
Its the only place I know as home sweet home

Bridge
Seems no matter where I go
Before long I cant wait
To hitch a ride or hop a train
Till Im back in that Lone Star State

Verse 3
Spent time in those sandstone hills along the Rio Grande
Had to see those mountain views from Santa Fe
Those painted rocks and desert sands are magic to the eyes
But not enough to make me want to stay

Chorus
Take me back to Texas
Thats where I wanna be
Things havent been the same since I've been gone
Give me bluebells in the garden
And the Cowboys on TV
Its the only place I know as home sweet home
