And God Created Texas

Song Author Johnny Bush Performer: Johnny Bush Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]God had a piece of heaven left [F]over
And He [C]held it in the palm of His [G7]hand   
[C]Put a lonestar high [F]above it
Then [G7]set it down beside the Rio [C]Grande

He made the horns on the steers a little [F]longer
Put [C]thorns on the black [G7]chaparral
[C]Set the tumbleweeds to grow and the [F]wind to make ‘em roll
And [G7]chase the diamond backs along the [C]trail

And [F]Texas was a place He [C]created
The nearest place to heaven on this [G7]earth
[C]Put a cowboy in a [F]show and called it a [C]rodeo
And [G7]put it in the middle of Ft. [C]Worth

Then God said there´s just one thing [F]missing
But [C]soon it will come [G7]along
[C]This land needs its own kind of [F]music
So [G7]He willed a man named Bob to write the [C]songs

He put [F]Cotton Eyed Joe in the [C]middle
Then put the fiddle in a masters [G7]hand   
And when he [C]stars all alone and [F]plays the Rose of San [C]Antone
Then [G7]He let the course of nature complete the [C]plan


God had a piece of heaven left over
And He held it in the palm of His hand
Put a lonestar high above it
Then set it down beside the Rio Grande

He made the horns on the steers a little longer
Put thorns on the black chaparral
Set the tumbleweeds to grow and the wind to make ‘em roll
And chase the diamond backs along the trail

And Texas was a place He created
The nearest place to heaven on this earth
Put a cowboy in a show and called it a rodeo
And put it in the middle of Ft. Worth

Then God said there´s just one thing missing
But soon it will come along
This land needs its own kind of music
So He willed a man named Bob to write the songs

He put Cotton Eyed Joe in the middle
Then put the fiddle in a masters hand
And when he stars all alone and plays the Rose of San Antone
Then He let the course of nature complete the plan
