lyrics

YOU CAN GO TO HELL, I'M GOIN' TO TEXAS
Music & Lyrics © 2014 Paul Washington

I’m sittin’ reminiscin’ the place I been missin’
How’s things in Austin tonight?
I like New York, New York, nice place to visit
Somehow it never did seem right
I feel like Davy Crocket up there in D.C.
Tryin’ be the man he couldn’t be
Davy said "I gotta go" and lit out for the Alamo
He died young, but he died free -- he said:

You can go to hell, I’m goin’ to Texas
Where the cottonwoods are dancin’ on the breeze
You can go to hell, I’m goin’ to Texas
Texas is the place for me

I can hear ‘em singing -- Willie and Waylon
Singin’ those songs that don’t get old
Sometimes they make a man
Who can’t be bought and sold
When God made them he must have broke the mold
Now Willie went to Nashville, he topped the charts
But the outlaw, that’s a breed apart
Willie said "I’m goin’ home --
The hill country near San Antone"
He said I gotta follow my own heart -- he said:

You can go to hell, I’m goin’ to Texas
You see this suit and tie, it’s chokin’ me
You can go to hell, I’m goin’ to Texas
Texas is the place for me

The six o’ clock alarm don’t stop another workin’ day
I’ll join the overworked and underpaid
I’m so tired, it’s all the same old stuff
You couldn’t pay me enough
So thanks but no thanks it’s time for me to go
I’m going where the Gulf Coast breezes blow
So take this job and stick it
Where the sun don’t ever shine
I’m going where the sun shines all the time

You can go to hell, I’m goin’ to Texas
Where the bluebonnets grow wild and free
You can go to hell I’m goin’ to Texas
Texas is the place for me
You can go to hell I’m goin’ to Texas
Texas is the place for me
