Red Steagall Under the X in Texas lyrics


I'm sittin' with a map lay out on my lap

Now there's not too many places that I ain't been

But the one place I love best is spread all over the west

And I'm tryin' the bigger how to get back home again


I wish I was sittin' right under the X in Texas

Right in the heart of where my heart must be

But whenever I roam I never feel at home cept in Texas

Under the X in Texas is the only place for me


[ guitar - steel - fiddle ]

Now I don't know what I miss the most

The hills out west or the southern coast

Or be in where a man can sleep for miles for miles

Those east Texas rivers with tall pine trees

Or the great sneak plaines with prairie breeze

But baby I'm lonesome to see a Texas smile


I wish I was sittin' right under the X in Texas.
