To the people up in Texas it's the nearest thing to heaven here on earth
The lifestyle up in Texas is just go on out and live for all it's worth
Where the men are all men and the ladies there are born with ways to please
And the people up in Texas think that the rest of all the world is over seas
You don't need no one to tell you when you cross that Texas line
The air starts smellin' sweeter and the water tastes like wine
The sun is always shining so it's seldom ever cold people just grow up there never old
[ guitar ]
You don't need no one...
The people up in Texas...
Yeah the people up in Texas think that the rest of all the world is over seas
