Roxy Music – Prairie Rose lyrics


Texas thatґs where I
It seems to me
Texas lonesome star
Shine on
The big country
Texas with open skies
And you
For company
Texas oh prairie rose
How happy
I should be
Hey hey you can take it from me
Hey hey iґll be coming, youґll see
Hey hey oh what a state to be in
Hey hey youґre tantalising me
Texas I will compose
In fancy rhyme
Or just plain prose
Texas a song of praise
To you
Prairie rose
Texas though iґm not sure
I can explain
Your strange allure
Texas prairie rose -
A crown of thorns
A scented flower
Hey hey iґd better leave right away
Hey hey I can hear you calling me
Prairie rose
