Tanya Tucker Texas When I Die Lyrics

(Ed Bruce/Bobby Borchers?Patsy Bruce)

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

New York couldn't hold my attention
Detroit City couldn't sing my song
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in Dallas
I won't care, 'cause at least I'll know I'm home.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

I'd ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
Just to hear Willie Nelson sing a country song
Beer just ain't as cold in old Milwaukee
My body's here, but my soul's in San Antone.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, Boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

Best sing along of all time.... | Reviewer: Just Joe | 10/29/2007

If you've got girls at the party??? and what man doesn't plan to have 'em?? then you've got to play Texas by Tanya and watch them all go nuts on the dance floor...pretending to be singing it ..It rates up there with Mony-Mony and Cowboy by Kid Rock.
Even today, after all these years, and with the 35-45 age crowd(those 20 somethings like it too) most of the girls remember hearing it and if not they'll come over and ask about it afterwards.
