Big Country – Prairie Rose lyrics

Texas oh that's where I
It seems to me

Lonesome star
Shine on
The big country

With open skies
And you
For company

Oh prairie rose
How happy
I should be

Hey hey you can take it from me
Hey hey I'll be calling, you'll see
Hey hey oh what a state to be in
Hey hey you're tantalizing me

Texas I will compose
In fancy rhyme
Or just plain prose

A song of praise
To you
My prairie rose

Though I'm not sure
I can explain
Your strange allure

Oh prairie rose
A crown of thorns
A scented flower

Hey hey you can take it from me
Hey hey I'll be calling, you'll see
Hey hey I'd better leave right away
Hey hey I can hear you calling me

Hey hey Prairie rose [Repeat: x3]

Hey hey
I hear your voice
And it keeps me
From sleeping
Prairie rose

Hey hey Prairie rose [Repeat: x5]
