Written by: Doug Supernaw/Lonnie Alkinson
Performed by:Doug Supernaw on "Red and Rio Grande"

[Intro]
One lone star waving in the wind
A longhorn standing proud behind a rusty barbed wire fence
Cowboy hats and hearts that necer bend
I was born and raised a Texan and will be 'til the end

As I travel down that blue bonnet highway
I'm thankful I was born a lucky man
And I know that I will live and die my own way
Somewhere between the Red and Rio Grande

Two old boots, dusty, worn, and stained
By the oilfields and the ranches and the blood that fell like rain
Heroes hearts that fought to change our name
From Tejas to Texas where the Lone Star proudly waves
