You can take a girl from TEXAS,
But you can’t take her so far
She forgets that she’s a TEXAN,
Still in love with that “Lone Star”!
You can tempt her with new spices,
You can tempt her with sitars,
You can tempt her with new vistas
Underneath yer foreign stars.
But she’s through and through a TEXAN
Who remembers her old home
Very fondly and nostalgically
Wherever she may roam.
How she dreams of going back there
Where the people are so kind,
And the peaches that they grow there
Are the best that you can find!
Well, she’s still too far from TEXAS
To go visit every day,
But someday she will move back there
Where forever she will stay!
