Have you heard the story of
A girl named Beth now known as Tex
Her life's tale is a bloody trail
Her name fits like a glove

Her daddy sighed as she slammed the door
She'd said to him I'm Beth no more
My life's dream is to kill for green
But first I'll join the Corps

Her daddy said, “You're just a girl
What makes you think that you won't sink?”
“My name is Tex and I'm like a hex
My playground is the world”

Basic turned her gun to gold
Soon had it made she'd hit by trade
Amassing kills she proved her skills
Make your blood run cold

I once saw Texas at a bar
Sippin’ rye with some apple pie
With a distant stare like she didn't care
She said, “What's with the guitar?”

I must admit my lips went numb
Some butter bar said, his face all red
“She's too good and you're driftin’ wood”
Said, “boy you'd better run”

Texas said, “Sir keep your peace
My heart is free, and so is he
I'll give it to, any man who's true”
The safeties were released

He drew before he replied
But Tex was hot and he was not
He lay dead while Texas bled
Crimson on her side

Texas said,
“This could be my last I guess
I gotta go and now you know
I want a song to live for long”
It's a fair request

Texas made it out I heard
But her one need I did heed
I think of Beth while mocking death
Like a mocking bird

    Song MeaningThis song is clearly about Agent Texas, or Allison (as of Season 4 of Red vs Blue). This was intended as Tex's theme, and a damn good one at that. LOVE that "Tex Is Here" intro and the fast drum beats ^_^
