"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 that's out on bail
Just trying to get home
Well I ain't in jail and I got me a guitar
Got a little band that's 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 USA
And the other states
Ahh, they're OK
Texas is the place I wanna be
And I don't care if I ever go to Delaware anyway
'Cause we got Stubbs, and Gruene Hall and Antone's, and John T's
Country Store
We've got Willie and Jacky Jack, Robert Earl, Pat, Cory, 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, screw you

Sing it with me
Screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
Screw you, we're from Texas
We're from Texas, screw you!

Now Texas has gotten a bad reputation
Because of what happened in Dallas and Waco
And our corporations well 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 Mister 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

    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.
