Song Description

Lots and lots and lots of things about Texas


©2006 melody & lyrics by Anni Lichty

It's a Texas thang - let me explain
It's "ya'll come back" and "hug my neck" and all kinds of slang
It's a nod and wave for the local folks - for strangers just the same
It's prayin' for your neighbor and it's prayin' for rain
It's a Texas thang

It's a Texas thang - and it's in our veins
It's the sweet lullaby of a pump jack hummin' out some Texas Tea
It's Friday nights underneath the lights of a hometown football game
It's barefoot down a red dirt road for mesquite tree ballet
It's a Texas thang

It's a Texas thang - nothin' quite the same
It's a jackrabbit chewin' at a prickly pear on the South Texas Plains
It's peppers on the bottom and peppers on the top and peppers in between
It's 600 miles of Gulf Coast Line like you ain't never seen
It's a Texas thang

It's a Texas thang - our claim to fame
It's the prairies and the lakes and rattlesnakes and longhorns out to graze
It's a cowboy stringin' up a barbed wire fence to a cricket serenade
It's a picture perfect windmill with the western sky ablaze
It's a Texas thang

It's a Texas thang - and it's quite a scene
It's the wildflowers, cedar and the cypress trees that the Hill Country brings
It's the smell of the East Texas Piney Woods after showers in the spring
It's overalls dancing on a clothes line and a tire for a swing
It's a Texas thang

It's a Texas thang - with a Southern twang
It's mustard potato salad and barbeque sauce on everything
It's a John Deere tractor in a cotton field where Panhandle ain't a dirty name
It's a devil of a wind through the Big Bend that turns the sky to clay
It's a Texas thang

It's a Texas thang - where the Lone Star waves
It's been said that some out-class us - it's been said by folks we're plain
Well they can just kiss the fork of our Brazos 'cause we don't give a dang
It's a state of mind that ain't never gonna change
It's a Texas thang

I was born free by the luck of the draw
Born Texan by the grace of God
