On a highway deep within the heart of Texas
I was just about as lost as I could be
I was drivin' round in circles tryin' to find the border
But Texas was as far as I could see

Hey, well I stopped and flagged me down a state policeman
I said, "My patience's growing mighty thin
Can you help me get the hell out of Texas"
He just flashed me some old lone star Texas grin

And he said, "You can't get the hell out of Texas
No matter how hard you try
Why in Texas we raise hell son, just like you raise a crop
It started with the alimo and it ain't gonna ever stop"

As long as there's a Houston and a Austin
Amarillo, Lubbock, Dallas and Fort Worth
Lord you can't get the hell out of Texas
'Cause it's the hell raisin' center of the earth

Oh, late last night I fell in love with Texas
I called my dear sweet mama on the phone
I said, "I've seen the light, ain't lots of joy
I'm a changed man, I'm a good old boy
Mama I ain't never comin' home, uh-uh"

For as long as there's a Houston and a Austin
Tyler, Beaumont, Dallas and Fort Worth
Lord you can't get the hell out of Texas
'Cause it's the hell raisin' center of the earth
I said, you can't get the hell out of Texas
'Cause it's the hell raisin' center of the earth
