Art Mooney Chorus – Giant lyrics

Boston and Houston, The Alamo
El Paso, Crystal City, Waco
Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio
And Galveston and Amarillo

[Chorus:]
This land is Texas
Lonestar state of Texas
This is the giant land I love

Just like a sleeping giant
Trolling in the sun
In one great hand
The Rio Grande
In the other, Galveston

Where oil wells laugh at angels
Buzzards wheel above

[Repeat chorus]

My ma was born in Dallas
Father in Fort Worth
You can bet your boots
I got my roots
In the good ole Texas earth

Just see the silver dollars
Falling from above

[Repeat chorus]

God made these lonely acres
Where I ride alone
But the Devil cursed
This land with thirst
And he bleached it like a bone

One day, a wild tornado
Next, a gentle dawn

[Repeat chorus]

Boston and Houston, The Alamo
El Paso, Crystal City, Waco
Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio
And Galveston and Amarillo
