I WAS BORN IN TEXAS

 
I was born in Texas and raised in Louisiana
an' I'm goin' down to alabam
gonna eat me some good smoked ham
head on down to New Orleans
with my baby in them sweet blue jeans
but I ain't goin back to Texas
I was born in Texas and raised in Louisiana
an' I'm goin' down to Baton Rouge
gonna find me som Cajun food
head on down to New Orleans
with my baby in them sweet blue jeans
but I ain't goin back to Texas

An' you don' have to ask why
I know it's plain to see
the Texas blue sky
has seen the last of me

I was born in Texas and raised in Louisiana
an' I'm goin' down to Tennessee
gonna find out what they have to eat
head on down to New Orleans
with my baby in them sweet blue jeans
but I ain't goin back to Texas
no I ain't......goin' back to Texas

Baby I'll sing this song for you
And tell the whole world
How much I love you
Maybe there'll be a way for me
To say just how I feel
Maybe the sunset will be red tonight
And we'll walk beside the bay
If my words could be said just right
I'd only have this to say

Chorus:
I love you
yes I love you
I really  I really  I love you
and I need you
oh honey I need you
I really I really  I do

So Baby I'll sing this song for you
and tell the whole world
how much you mean to me
Maybe it's not too much to ask
To hold your hand in mine
Maybe we can make the moonlight last
And I'll hold you close to me
We'll let the past just be the past
Cause our love  it can set us free

Chorus
