Lyrics
Got to love a Texas town, they don't give up, that's how it all goes down Nothin' but sand holds up the sacred ground Suns about to rise up over the flatlands now Ki Yi Yippie Yi Yay - Round here there's no need for change Ki Yi Yippie Yi Now - God I love a Texas town Just like out of a novel, you can watch the tumbleweeds grow Find out how it feels to connect up with your soul Missionaries they own each and every road With a little bit of god for every passing car load Dallas it glistens in the rain, El Paso guards the west just like a saint Houston's cosmopolitan, Austin's quite the music town But then San Antonio's great for partyin', But when you need to get away Really sink your feet in the sand of the Lone Star State Hit the Galveston Bay - Texas Clay Ki Yi Yippie Yi Yi - Gets so hot but the air's so dry Ki Yi Yippie Yi Now - God I love a Texas town
