Alex Bevan - Down In Texas lyrics

Down in Texas the stars shine cold;
The wind’s a knife
It’s hot as well
Down in Texas there is glory and gold
In the whisper of a gusher from a wishing well
Down in Texas the highways roll
West of Austin s
It moves real fast
Down in Texas it all starts to blend into
Armadillos, road kill and cheap gas

Down in Texas the roadhouses sprawl
Where pickups come crawl in
On a Saturday night
Down in Texas in the beer and the brawls
Nightfall’s glaring back at neon lights
While guitar slingers work it there for real
To the whine of the fiddle and the pedal steel
They go down in Texas
They say "Wah-hoo!"

Down in Texas legends are grown
Greater than the Alamo and other deadly matters
Down in Texas it all starts to blend
In bluesmen, equestrians and Stratocasters
While guitar slingers work it there for real
To the whine of the fiddle and the pedal steel
They go down in Texas
They say "Wah-hoo!"

Got'cher cowboys, got yer loud noise
Got yer flannel shirt millionaires
Got yer howdy pard, got yer lone star
Got the women with the great big hair
Down in Texas
They say "Wah-hoo!"
Down in Texas ghosts move at will
By all night truck stops and starlit rails
Down in Texas the living and the still
Hear Coyote call as he follows the trails
Of guitar slingers that move too slow
Baby, don’t you want to go
Let's go down to Texas
We'll say "Wah-hoo!"

[Chorus]
