Song For TexasPDF
Words and Music by Joe LaMay

Well it’s hard to tell folks if they haven’t been there
About the cool Texas mornings in the clear Texas air
And there’s something ‘bout a sunrise on a wide southern plain
It just sticks in my heart ‘till I go back again

Well I first saw the lone star down near San Antone
I knew I wouldn’t be staying - couldn’t call it my home
So I took just enough to call Texas my friend
As I headed up north to the panhandle plain

Well hello Amarillo with your sweet Spanish name
The dust of your history runs through your veins
And the ghosts of your cattle drives still seemed so real
As I followed their tracks through petroleum fields

Well I stayed through the fall ‘till the coming of snow
Then it’s off to California - out west I did go
But I took just enough to call Texas my friend
‘Cause I knew in my heart I would see her again

Here’s to the canyons and here’s to the streams
Here’s to the West Texas plains
And here’s to the river they call Rio Grande
Here’s ‘till I’m with her again

Once I passed Amarillo on the way to New York
I only stayed for an hour and it was too short
Then I drove on to Shamrock for food and for gas
Then back to the highway with more time to pass

But now I’m coming back Texas - I’m gonna be with you soon
So hold on to that sunrise and the big Texas moon
I’ll not waste a minute of the time we will spend
And I’ll take just enough to call you my friend
