lyrics

No, I'm not from Texas
But Lyle said to come anyway
So I got here as fast as I could
Walked out in Laredo yesterday

Now I get why Dallas
Is sometimes written off as just a dream
And I believe it was destiny
For Houston to give the world a queen

I confess I might sometimes
Forget the Alamo
But underneath this Big Bend sky
There's one thing that I know

The eyes of Texas have nothing on yours
A smile in El Paso could light the Corpus shore
The Austin city limits are almost San Antone
We're a thousand miles from anywhere, but this sure feels like home
You're the lone star in the Amarillo sky
And you shine
Oh, you shine

There's a doctor in Waco
Who helps me push on long after four
When a lot of Bliss's hearts
Can't bear hearing Galveston no more

Looking back, leaving Luckenbach
Was painless for the wailin' and the wine
We've been driving all night long
And just now crossed the Potter County line

I confess I might sometimes
Forget the Alamo
But every day that Willie's high
There's one thing that I know

The eyes of Texas have nothing on yours
A smile in El Paso could light the Corpus shore
The Austin city limits are almost San Antone
We're a thousand miles from anywhere, but this sure feels like home
You're the lone star in the Amarillo sky
And you shine
Oh

No, it ain't always roses
We got bluebonnets, too
And I know the closest
I'll ever get to heaven
Is drifting through Texas with you

The eyes of Texas have nothing on yours
A smile in El Paso could light the Corpus shore
The Austin city limits are almost San Antone
We're a thousand miles from anywhere, but this sure feels like home
You're the lone star in the Amarillo sky
And you shine
Oh, you shine
