"Screw You, We’re From Texas" as written by and Ray Wylie Hubbard....
I got on my cowboy boots, jeans and Hawaiian shirt
Mirrored sunglasses and a mobile phone
I guess I look like some Port Aransas dope dealer who?s out on bail
Just trying to get home
But I ain?t in jail, and I got me a guitar and I got a little band that
hotter than a rocket
Sometimes we?re sloppy, we?re always loud
Tonight we?re just ornery and locked in the pocket

So screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
We?re from Texas, baby, so screw you

Now I love the US and the other states, ahh they?re ok.
Texas is the place I want to be and I don?t care if I ever go to Delaware
anyway
Cuz we got studs and Green Hall and Antones and John T?s Country Store
We got Willie and Jackie and Jack, Robert Earle, Pat Core, Charlie and me
and so many more

So screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
We?re from Texas, baby, so screw you

Sing it with me
So screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
We?re from Texas, so screw you

Now Texas has gotten a bad reputation because of what happened in Dallas
and Waco
And our corporations they are corrupt, and the politicians are swindlers
and loco
But when it comes to music my friend I believe these words are as true as
St. John the Revelator?s
Our Mr. Vaughan was the best that there ever was and no band was cooler
than the 13th Floor Elevators

So screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
We?re from Texas, screw you

Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
We?re from Texas, screw you

Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
Screw you, we?re from Texas
We?re from Texas, screw you
We?re from Texas, screw you

    General CommentWhile this song may just sound like a typical pissed off Texan with all the “Screw you we’re from Texas” lines, I think it is really an anthem about Texas music and particularly Stevie Ray Vaughn.

    Hubbard talks about having a guitar and a band. He refers to several Texas music venues. He says, “We got Willie (Nelson), and Jackie (Greene), Jack (Ingram), Robert Earl (Keen), Pat (Green), Cory (Morrow), Charlie (Robinson),” these are all Texas music artists. The “13th Floor Elevators” was a Texas band back in the day, and of course “Mr. Vaughn” refers to Stevie Ray Vaughn who was a Texas Blues/Rock guitar master who died in the early 90’s.
