Deep In the Heart of Texas

< instrumental opening  > 
 
The stars at night are big an' bright . . .
Deep in the heart of Texas!
The prairie sky is wide an' high . . .
Deep in the heart of Texas!
The sage in bloom is like perfume. . .
Deep in the heart of Texas!

Reminds me of the one I love. . .

Deep in the heart of Texas!

< instrumental break  > 

The coyotes wale along the trail . . .
Deep in the heart of Texas!
The rabbits rush around the brush . . .
Deep in the heart of Texas!

< instrumental break  > 

The cowboys cry 'Cai Yippi Yi'. . .
Deep in the heart of Texas!

The doggies bawl and' bawl an' bawl . . .

Deep in the heart of Texas!
Deep in the heart of Texas!

Deep in the heart of Texas!
