  • God painted the bluebonnets in the fields,
    By a tough little scrub oak, on an east Texas hill.
    And he plucked the star from a lone star sky,
    And he put it in the twinkle of a cowboy's eye.

    The wide open spaces he made wild and free.
    Texas, as far as any eye can see;
    And he made her sons grow tough and strong.
    They still cry when they hear a sad song.

    [Chorus]
    No place but Texas
    Would I ever roam.
    No place but Texas;
    My home, sweet home.
    No place but Texas;
    My home, sweet home.

    When I die I hope they bury me
    By the Pedernales River, 'neath a white oak tree,
    Where I can see the longhorns graze
    And the cactus flowers blooming in the morning haze.

    [Chorus]
