"Prairie Rose" as written by Phil Manzanera and Bryan Ferry....
Texas That's where I
Belong
It seems to me
Texas Lonesome star
Shine on
The big country
Texas With open skies
And you
For company
Texas Oh prairie rose
How happy
I should be

Hey hey You can take it from me
Hey hey I'll be coming, you'll see
Hey hey Oh what a state to be in
Hey hey You're tantalizing me
Texas I will compose
In fancy rhyme
Or just plain prose
Texas A song of praise

To you
Prairie rose
Texas Though I'm not sure
I can explain
Your strange allure
Texas Prairie rose
A crown of thorns
A scented flower

Hey hey I'd better leave right away
Hey hey I can hear you calling me
Prairie rose

    Song MeaningSounds like driving across the Panhandle with the windows open. No air conditioning. Thunderstorm in the distance. A beautiful blonde at your side. Don't mess with TEXAS - don't put no beans in my chile neither...

    A glorious song (which is the only kind of songs Roxy Music ever made).

    Here's a good read if you can find it: amazon.com/Jerry-Halls-Tall-Tales-Hall/dp/…

    Found one in a thrift shop years ago. Jerry mentions Roxy Music in passing - but devotes many pages to some rocker, Mark Jagger from some other group that was famous back then, can't remember their name right now...

    I see the books are now worth a bit more than I paid!
