HEAVEN HELP US ALL... ...AND GIVE ME TO TEXAS! Heaven help us all ...and give me to Texas when I rest or fall, Houston, less there be Blue Bonnets elsewhere Show me The... Astro City stratosphere Austin hill country... The Golden Triange ...San Jacinto battle grounds The Gulf of Galveston's bay... all that brine Mexico Blue... deep and forever ...absorbing my time in imaginary trail rides I love the smell of magnolias. rhymes see the world with me by their side... at tunes IN Ohio! ...Indiana...Illinois... These rhymes see the world with me by their side... St. Louis in the midnight... Out my railroading window is the arched gateway to the West Side ... The wide crooked letter river flows absorbing Still, I know Texas is a little bit of every where. Like Farm Road twenty-two-thirty-four... From Sacramento to Baltimore... Home is where the heart is... I adore the Lone Star state! Oh... ... Bury me in the silt, just under all the southern comfort, ... less there be Blue Bonnets elsewhere Heaven help us all and give to me ... Texas, when I rest or fall. I love the amber glow of grain fields, The season's yield reflecting the sun set, and absorbing imaginary trail rides Less there be Blue Bonnets elsewhere !
