Gone To Texas
Written and recorded by Red Steagall

C F C
My granddad was the right man to tame this savage wild land
F C D7 G7
Then the carpetbaggers came and stole our very heart and soul
C F C
The land we fought and died for the home my momma cried for
F C G7 C
We couldn’t pay the taxes so they took all we owned

F C
That Yankee tax collector was a dodging diving actor
F C D7 G7
As he outrun the buckshot in a high low he was gone
C F C
I’m sure they’ll send another but they really need’nt bother
F C G7 C
Cause when they come a-calling there’ll be nobody home

F G7 F C
Cause we’re off to tame a new land where I can be my own man
F D7 G7
Where them carpet bagging scallywags will leave a boy alone
F G7 F C
We’ll start all over brand new my daddy taught me how to
F G7 C
And we’ll build a cattle kingdom and we’ll call Texas home

F C
There’ll be no old folks grieving cause they don’t know we’re leaving
F C D7 G7
White crosses still remind us of the sacrifice they made
C
When they stood their ground and fought ’em
F C
All the Union soldiers brought ‘em
F C G7 C
With death and fire and ashes that’s the price the old folks paid

F C
We’ve loaded up our wagon with all that we can pack in
F C D7 G7
A team of fine bred horses and we’re finally on our way
C F C
To where leafy live oak branches shelters heart and soul and family
F C G7 C
We’ll stake a claim on Texas we’ll clear the land and stay

Repeat #3

F G7 F C
Yes we’ll start all over brand new my daddy taught me how to
F G7 F C
And we’ll build a cattle kingdom and we’ll call Texas home
