Texas When I Die Lyrics

by Tanya Tucker

When I die I may not go to Heaven
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

New York couldn't hold my attention
Detroit City couldn't sing my song
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in Dallas
Well, I won't care, 'cause at least I'll know I'm home

When I die I may not go to Heaven
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

I'd ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
Just to hear Willie Nelson sing a country song
Beer just ain't as cold in old Milwaukee
My body's here, but my soul's in San Antone

When I die I may not go to Heaven
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boys
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

When I die, well, I may not go to Heaven
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

When I die, well, I may not go to Heaven
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

When I die, well, I may not go to Heaven, no
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

When I die, if, I may not go to Heaven, no
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

When I die, if, I may not go to Heaven, no
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

When I die, I may not go to Heaven
Well, I don't know if they let cowboys in
