When the day breaks on Cedar Creek Lake
Or my life rolls into Rome
When the sun goes down on Austin town
That's when I'll know I'm home

What a time we'll have on Greenville Ave
With the big shots in Big D
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

For the girls I've known in San Anton
And out El Paso way
My love grows like a yellow rose
And will not fade away

When you hold tight on a summer night
I'm gone, yeah, I am free
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

Like a mystery train or a magic trick
Or a map of the world on a guitar pick
I can't explain, I got to let it be
The eyes of Texas are smiling on me
Yeah, the eyes of Texas are smiling on me

Where the bluebonnets thrive on I-35
And the Guadalupe River flows
Where the stars at night are a hell of a sight
And the honkey-tonks never close

When the mornin' sun rise and I open my eyes
Yeah, that's all I wanna see
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me
I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me

I'm livin' in a state of Texas
And Texas lives in me
