If This Was Texas
Recorded by Billy Mata
Written by Jesse Shofner

G C G D7
What happened to the boy from El Paso
G C Em D7
The one who rode the broncs in the rodeo
Pretty lonestar princes dreamed of dancing
Em D7
In a Broadway show

G C G D7
Now I drive a New York City cab
G C Em D7
And leaving here's the best tip that I've had
You're a New York waitress
G C Em D7
Dance with me as far as I will go

If this was Texas I'd be at home
C D7
When you needed me you'd never find me gone
If this was Texas you'd be my rose
C D7 G
And I'll be there to watch the garden grow

C G D7
I've given up a lot of love for you
G C Em D7
Now could you do the same thing for me too
I've dreamed of breaking horses
G Em D7
Far away from these big city blues

Repeat #3

C D7 G
Yes I'll be there to watch the garden grow
