Ask and you shall receive! 10 Songs About Texas That Y’all Know And Love was such a hit, but we received so many requests to add on more memorable tunes that represent the great state of Texas, so here they are.
These Texas tunes describe love, loss, good times, and all the beauty that the Lone Star state has to offer, with vivid imagery and details. From Texas-native Willie Nelson to Mitch Miller, we know you’ll get a kick out of this list.
Though these songs are in no particular order, we thought we’d start off with a song that’s actually about the Texas Hill Country, a place where “wild wings fly above the peaceful valleys”.
Get ready to enjoy songs that you may have not heard in years or perhaps you’ll discover a new favorite!
The hill country, the country that I love / Where wild wings fly above the peaceful valleys
You ask me what I like about Texas / I tell you it’s the wide open spaces!
There’s a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna see / Nobody else could miss her, not half as much as me
‘Cause God blessed Texas with His own hand / Brought down angels from the promised land
But I wonder now if it makes a difference / Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind?
And I’ve got all night to remember you / I’m in a lone star state of mind
I’m like a tumbleweed in a wild west Texas wind / You’re blowing me away again
The wide open spaces He made wild and free / Texas as far as any eye can see
You miss it so much when you’re gone / It’s hard for you to say / Texas gets more beautiful, with every passing day
All my ex’s live in Texas / And Texas is a place I’d dearly love to be
Is anybody goin’ to San Antone / Or Phoenix, Arizona / Any place is alright as long as I / Can forget I’ve ever known her
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’ve got a Houston solution in mind / All it takes is a call on the telephone line / And I can leave all these problems in Nashville behind / I’ve got a Houston solution in mind.
Nevada never closes, New York City’s got bright lights / But it’s nothing quite like Texas on a Saturday night
