Jerry Jeff Walker – Keep Texas Beautiful lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

Texas in October, is about as pretty as it gets
But Texas in the springtime, is even prettier yet
You miss it so much when you're gone
It's hard for you to say
Texas gets more beautiful, with every passing day

Got a letter from my family, said they'd had a lot of rain
It washed away the cotton crops, but all and all they can't complain
'Cause the bluebonnets are about to bloom again,
And Ginger finally had her colt
In Texas they don't worry much, about things they can't control

Chorus:
Keep Texas beautiful, keep Texas free
Keep her wild and natural, just the way she ought to be
This world is full of man-made wonders, Texas didn't come that way
No, Texas came out beautiful, why not keep her that way?

I've been out here working hard, trying to make ends meet
But a float trip down the Rio Grande would sure do a lot for me
A good night's sleep under a lot of stars
With a sunrise crisp and clean
And the smell of coffee boiling, by a big old pot of beans

Chorus

So in my dreams I'm driving home, I can see my daddy's face
He's standing by the live oak tree, in our yard on Canyon Lake
And I'm driving under miles and miles of clear blue Texas skies
Some strangers in a pick-up truck, turn and wave as I drive by

Chorus

Yeah, Texas came out beautiful, why not keep her that way?
