If You're Gonna Play In Texas (You Gotta Have A Fiddle In The Band) Lyrics

by Alabama

If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot
But not for a Louisiana man

So rosen up that bow for faded love
And let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band

I remember down in Houston
We were puttin' on a show
When a cowboy in the back stood up
And yelled cotton eyed joe

He said,"We love what you're doing
Boys don't get us wrong
There's just something missing in your song"

If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot
But not for a Louisiana man

So rosen up that bow for faded love
And let's all dance
If you're gonna play in Texas
You gotta have a fiddle in the band

So we dusted off our boots
And put our cowbtoy hats on straight
Them Texans raised the roof
When Jeff opened up his case

Say y'all all want to two-step
Say you wanna do-ce-doe
Well, here's a fiddling song before we go

If we're gonna play in Texas
We gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot
But not for a Louisiana man

So rosen up that bow for faded love
And let's all dance
If we're gonna play in Texas
We gotta have a fiddle in the band

If we're gonna play in Texas
We gotta have a fiddle in the band
That lead guitar is hot
But not for a Louisiana man

So rosen up that bow for faded love
And let's all dance
If we're gonna play in Texas
We gotta have a fiddle in the band
