Lyle Lovett – Long Tall Texan lyrics
Well I'm a long tall texan
I wear a ten-gallon hat
(he rides from texas wearing a ten-gallon hat)
Yes I'm a long tall texan
I wear a ten-gallon hat
(he rides from texas wearing a ten-gallon hat)
Well people look at me and they say
Is that your hat
(he rides from texas wearing a ten-gallon hat)

Well I'm a long tall texan
I ride a big white horse
(he rides from texas on a big white horse)
Yes I'm a long tall texan
I ride a big white horse
(he rides from texas on a big white horse)
Well people look at me and they say
Is that your horse
(he rides from texas on a big white horse)

Well I was walking down the street
With my shiny badge
My spurs jingling there at my feet
I seen a man a'coming
Coming with a gun and
I just can't be beat

Yes I'm a long tall texan
I enforce justice for the law
(he rides from texas to enforce the law)
Well I'm a long tall texan
I enforce justice for the law
(he rides from texas to enforce the law)
Well people look at me and they say
Is you the law
(he rides from texas to enforce the law)

Well I'm a long tall texan
Yes I'm a long tall texan
