Jerry Jeff Walker – What I Like About Texas lyrics

Jerry Jeff Walker

You ask me what I like about Texas
I tell you it's the wide open spaces!
It's everything between the Sabine and the Rio Grande.
It's the Llano Estacado,
It's the Brazos and the Colorado;
Spirit of the people down here who share this land!

It's another burrito, it's a cold Lone Star in my hand
It's a quarter for the jukebox boys
Play the Sons of the Mother Lovin' Bunkhouse Band

You ask me what I like about Texas
It's the big timber round Nacadoches
It's driving El Camino Real into San Antone
It's the Riverwalk in Mi Tierra
Dancing to the Cotton-eyed Joe
It's stories of the Menger Hotel and the Alamo!

It's another burrito, it's a cold Lone Star in my hand!
It's a quarter for the jukebox boys
Play The Son's of the Mother Lovin' Bunkhouse Band

Hey, you ask me what I like about Texas
It's Blue Bonnets and indian paint brushes
Swimming in the sacred waters of Barton Springs
It's body surfing the Freo
It's Saturday night in Del Rio!
Driving across the border for some cultural exchange!

It's another burrito, it's a cold Lone Star in my hand!
It's a quarter for the jukebox boys
Plays The Son's of the Mother Lovin' Bunkhouse Band

It's another burrito, with a cold Lone Star in my hand!
It's a quarter to four, the jukebox boy
Play The Son's of the Mother Lovin' Bunkhouse Band

You ask me what I like about Texas

Spoken:
I could tell you... But it would take all night long..
