Lyrics

Miles and Miles of Texas
(Tommy Camfield/Diane Johnston)

Born in Louisiana down on the old bayou
Raised on shrimp and catfish and Mammy's good gumbo
I got that ramblin fever, said goodbye to ma and pa
I crossed the old Red River and this is what I saw:

I saw miles and miles of Texas
All those stars way up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die

I rode up in to cowtown, the cradle of the west
Just ask any cowboy he'll tell you it's the best
I met a Texas cutie and got friendly with his ma
When I looked into his eyes, this is what I saw:

I saw miles and miles of Texas
All those stars way up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die

I started taming broncos, made every rodeo
Until I met a tough one, his name was Devil Joe
I grabbed hold of his bridle just to ride the old outlaw
He threw me from the saddle and this is what I saw:

I saw miles and miles of Texas
All those stars way up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas
I'm gonna live there 'til I die
