Song Description

Coming home for Christmas we decorate the tree then drive to church to sing carols to our Lord.

Story Behind the Song

Chapman's first Christmas in Texas struck her with the beauty, sincerity and simplicity of the celebration

Lyrics

Christmas in the Lone Star State
blows in with icy bite
the live oak and the mesquite
are chilled in the Texas night
Hanging up the twinkling lights
our hearts begin to smile
There's nothing like home for Christmas
in good old Texas style

WHEN IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE IN TEXAS
we pile in the family Ford
to get to church by midnight
and sing carols to our Lord
When it's CHRISTMAS EVE IN TEXAS
we're no different than the rest
Church bells ring out in the night
and all the world is blessed
IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE IN TEXAS.

Javelinas scatter and ponies gather
as white tails leap and play
Now Santa's coming just as quick as he can
with presents in his sleigh
The children dream of brand new boots
under cactus Christmas trees
while me and Mamma deck the halls
with chili pepper wreaths

REPEAT CHORUS

When the Star of Bethlehem
gives its promise to the night
down along the Rio Grande
a special blessing shines

DREPEAT CORUS
When the cold Blue Norther blows
everybody knows
IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE IN TEXAS
