Heart Of Texas Recorded by Billy Joe Shaver and Waylon Jennings Written by Billy Joe Shaver
G The heart of Texas is where I was born C By twist of fate the lone star state's where I'm coming from G God almighty's been good to me
Where I grow'd up learning about the Alamo C With a swelling pride down deep inside me saying go man go G You can be all you want to be
D7 Yeah it's right there where the best is C G Smack dab in the heart of Texas thank you Ma'am
Papa run off before I was born C Mama picked cotton just to raise us kids in the Texas sun G We grew up in the cotton fields
So I learned how to work and I learned how to fight C I learned how to put a bunch of words together as the years rolled by G God gave me a way to go
When my sweetheart listened to the songs I played C She said I love you honey but there ain't much money in a serenade G I need a man with a real job
D7 Now she's back there where I left her C G God knows I still think about her now and then D7 But she knows these clothes I'm wearing C G Is the kind that shirt tails always flapping in the wind
I made my music from coast to coast C Been over the water couldn't get no hotter then I dang near froze G Remember the Alamo
The road was long but the heart is strong C I was Texas born and raised and Texas is still my home G Texas is home sweet home
D7 Yeah it's right there where the best is C G Smack dab in the heart of Texas thank you man D7 Where my songs are always playing C G And them good ol’ Texas gals say honey where you been
D7 Yeah it's right back there where the best is C G Smack dab in the heart of Texas thank you man
