Well the honky-tonks in Texas are my natural second home
Where you tip your hat to the ladies and the rose of San Antone
I grew up on music that we called western swing
It don't matter who's in Austin, Bob Wills is still the king

Well I can still remember the way things were back then
In spite of all the hard times, I'd do it all again
To hear The Texas Playboys and Tommy Duncan sing
Makes me proud to be in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king

You can hear the Grand Ol' Opry from Nashville, Tennessee
It's the home of country music, on that we all agree
When you cross that ol' Red River, boy, well that don't mean a thing
Cause when you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king

Well if you ain't never been there I guess you ain't been told
You've got to live in Texas, you've got to have a lot of soul
It's the home of Willie Nelson, it's the home of western swing
Cause when you're down in Austin, Bob Wills is still the king

And when you're down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the king
