my lyricsbox
I's (G)born in Louisiana, down (C)on the old bay-(G)ou;
(C)Raised on shrimp and (G)catfish, (A7)Mammy's good gum-(D7)bo.
I (G)got the ramblin' fever, said good-(C)bye to maw and (G)paw;
(C)Crossed that (d flat dim)old Red (G)River(E7) (A7)this is (D7)what I (G)saw.

Chorus
I saw (G)miles and miles of Texas, all the stars up in the (D7)sky;
I saw (G)miles and miles of (c min 9)Texas, gonna (G)live here (D7)'til I
(G)die.

Verse 2
I (G)rode up in to Austin, the (C)cradle of the (G)West;
(C)Just ask any (G)cowboy, he'll (A)tell you that its the (D7)best.
And I (G)met a Texas beauty, I got (C)friendly with her (G)Paw;
I (C)looked in-(d flat dim)to her (G)big blue (E7)eyes, and (A7)this is
(D7)what I (G)saw.

Chorus
Instrumental break same as Chorus

Verse 3
I (G)started tamin' broncos, made (C)every rode-(G)o;
Un-(C)til I met a (G)tough one, you know his (A7)name was Devil (D7)Joe.
And I (G)grabbed hold of his bridle, just to (C)ride this old out-(G)law;
He (C)threw me (d flat dim)from the (G)saddle(E7), and (A7)this is (D7)what
I (G)saw.
