Hi…




Lucky me, I grew up
Beneath that ol' lone star
I was raised on fiddle and steel guitar
It used to be if you wanted to swing
To a good ol' country song
You had to find your way to Fort Worth
Houston, Dallas, San Antonio
But how it's grown

Texas is bigger than it used to be
It's coast to coast alive in most
Every town and city
I should know, I'm on the road
And lovin' what I see
Texas is bigger than it used to be

It's one, two, three step
Dancin' in line
Stretchin' that denim having a good time
My daddy told me years ago
Son, there'll come a day
It'll spread to Minnesota
New York City to L.A.
What can I say

Texas is bigger than it used to be
It's coast to coast alive in most
Every town and city
I should know, I'm on the road
And lovin' what I see
Texas is bigger than it used to be
