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
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
