Miles , Miles of Texas

Song Author Tommy Camfield og Diane Johnson Performer: Bob Wills Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]I was born in Louisiana [C]down on the old [G]bayou
[C]Raised on shrimp and [G]catfish and [A7]Mammy's good [D7]gumbo
I [G]got the ramblin' fever said [C]goodbye to maw and [G]paw  
[C]Crossed that old Red [G     e7]River  and [A7]this is [D7]what I [G]saw  

I saw miles and miles of Texas all the stars up in the [D7]sky   
I saw [G]miles and miles of Texas gonna live here [D7]'til I [G]die  

I rode up in to Austin the [C]cradle of the [G]West
[C]Just ask any [G]cowboy he'll [A7]tell you that its the [D7]best   
And I [G]met a Texas beauty I got [C]friendly with her [G]Paw  
I [C]looked into her [G]big blue [E7]eyes and [A7]this is [D7]what I [G]saw  

I saw miles and miles of Texas all the stars up in the [D7]sky   
I saw [G]miles and miles of Texas gonna live here [D7]'til I [G]die  

I started tamin' broncos [C]made every [G]rodeo
Un[C]til I met a [G]tough one you know his [A7]name was Devil [D7]Joe   
And I [G]grabbed hold of his bridle just to [C]ride this old out[G]law  
He [C]threw me from the [G]saddle [E7]and    [A7]this is [D7]what I [G]saw  

I saw miles and miles of Texas all the stars up in the [D7]sky   
I saw [G]miles and miles of Texas gonna live here [D7]'til I [G]die  

I was born in Louisiana down on the old bayou
Raised on shrimp and catfish and Mammy's good gumbo
I got the ramblin' fever said goodbye to maw and paw
Crossed that old Red [G     E7]River  and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of Texas all the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas gonna live here 'til I die

I rode up in to Austin the cradle of the West
Just ask any cowboy he'll tell you that its the best
And I met a Texas beauty I got friendly with her Paw
I looked into her big blue eyes and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of Texas all the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas gonna live here 'til I die

I started tamin' broncos made every rodeo
Until I met a tough one you know his name was Devil Joe
And I grabbed hold of his bridle just to ride this old outlaw
He threw me from the saddle and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of Texas all the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of Texas gonna live here 'til I die
