Ray Wylie Hubbard – Screw You, We're From Texas lyrics
Yeah
Well, is there anybody here from Texas?
I think we should adopt you!

I got some cowboy boots, jeans and Hawaiian shirt
I got some mirrored sunglasses, got a mobile phone
I guess I look like some Port Aransas dope dealer who's out on bail just trying to get home
But I ain't in jail and I got me a guitar
Got a little band here that's hotter than a rocket
Sometimes we're sloppy
We're always loud, tonight we're just ornery and locked in the pocket

So screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
We're from Texas, so screw you

Now don't get me wrong, I love the USA and all the other states, you know they're okay
But Texas is the place that I wanna be
And I doubt if I'll get a gig anywhere else anyways
Why would I wanna go when we got Antone's and Stubbs and Gruene Hall
We got old John T's Country Store
We've got Willie and Jerry Jeff and Robert Earl Keen, Hayes Carll
And a whole bunch more

So screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
We're from Texas, sing it with us!

Screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're about Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
We're from Texas, screw you!

Now Texas has got a bad reputation for a while
Because of what happened a long time ago down in Waco
And our corporations, some of them are a little sketchy
And our politicians, most of them are loco
But when it comes to music my friend, I can't believe these words
Are as true as St. John the Revelator
Yeah, Stevie Ra Vaughan was the best guitar player I ever heard
No band was cooler than the 13th Floor Elevators!

So screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
We're from Texas, screw you, let's tag it!

Screw you, we're from Texas
We're from Texas, screw you

I think he's one of us!

Ray Wylie Hubbard!
