Take Me Back To Texas

Take me back to Texas where the wild bluebonnets grow

Saddle up my quarter hoss, and southwest, ho! we’ll go

I long to see that Western sky o’er where my soul was born

Please take my back to Texas where I’ll no longer mourn

 

Take me back to Houston, the city of my birth

Where the victor of the Republic won the land of endless worth

I long to see my dad and granny and where I was conceived

Please take me back to Texas where I’ll no longer grieve

 

Take me back to San Anton’, the home of the Alamo

Then we can eat some barbecue at the Tejas Rodeo

I long to walk the River Walk like I did back in the day

Please take me back to Texas, where I’ll forever stay

 

Take me back to Austin where I can build my life

And raise a couple buckaroos with the help of my beautiful wife

I long to live and work and play in the City of the Violet Crown

Please take me back to Texas where I shall never frown

 

Take me back to Texas before it gets too late

Take me back to Texas, O please don’t make me wait

I’m weary of this ho-hum life in Suburbia, U.S.A.

Please take me back to Texas before I go astray

 

Bury me in Texas the day that I expire

As those bluebonnets use my remains to grow higher and higher

I long to look down from heaven and hear our national song:

“God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong!”

 

Take me back to Texas

Please, brother, take me home.
