That's Right (you're Not From Texas) Lyrics

You say you're not from Texas
Man as if I couldn't tell
You think you pull your boots on right
And wear your hat so well.

So pardon me my laughter
'Cause I sure do understand
Even Moses got excited
When he saw the promised land.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

See I was born and raised in Texas
And it means so much to me
Though my girl comes from down in Georgia
We were up in Tennessee.

And as we were driving down the highway
She asked me baby what's so great
How come you're always going on
About your Lone Star State.

I said that's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

Oh the road it looked so lovely
As she stood there on the side
And she grew smaller in my mirror
As I watched her wave goodbye.

Those boys from Carolina
They sure enough could sing
But when they came on down to Texas
We all showed them how to swing.

Now David's on the radio
And old Champ's still on the guitar
And Uncle Walt he's home with Heidi
Hiding in her loving arms.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

They're OK in Oklahoma
Up in Arkansas they're fair
But those old folks in Missouri
They don't even know you're there.

But at a dance hall down in Texas
That's the finest place to be
The women they all look beautiful
And their men will buy your beer for free.

And they'll say that's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

So won't you let me help you Mister
Just pull your hat down the way I do
And buy your pants just a little longer
And next time somebody laughs at you.

You just tell 'em you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway.

That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
That's right you're not from Texas
But Texas wants you anyway...
