Well, close your eyes and dream with me
I'm goin' on a trip through history
I wanna see some sights today
Hey, we'll go back when time was young
And you learned the trigger of the gun
Or you'd be six feet on your way

When the mountains closed the valley side
And the rivers held the miner's pride
It was the year of '49
Hey those days are now gone and dead
And I wish that I could see the lead
Flying from the cowboy's iron

Chorus:
I wanna go time travelin' through Texas you and me
I wanna go time travelin' through Texas you and me
I wanna be there to breathe the air and see all I can see
In my Texas time travelin' machine

Well the day goes on, the sun beats down
And bakes your skin a golden brown
Now your feelin' like a king
And we'll pull off along side the road
And see the land that Jesse owned
And all the times he spent with me
Then along the skyline of the trees
We'll skinnydip within the stream
And we'll flash the passin' cars
And then we'll jump into our Cadillac
The tracks of time will take us back
Back to the land off so far

Chorus

You got to take a look around and see
Tis land before it drowns
Underneath the city streets
Geronimo, he said it best,
"This is my land, I will not rest
Until I'm dead or it’s been freed"

Chorus twice
