heaven must be in texas

everyone has someplace special
london, paris or rome
for some folks it’s more simple
it’s the humble place they call home
i never thought much about it
now i think about it all the time
and it occurred to me
that in this galaxy
that the state of texas is divine

heaven must be in texas
'cause that’s where my angel is from
just a little north of dallas
south of where that red river runs
she is a perfect little lady
and she truly is the one
heaven must be in texas
'cause that’s where my angel is from

now i have always been happy
with my home on the western coast
i live right on the shore line
thought the girls there were the most
but then i had reason to travel
and texas was the place
i knew i was wrong
and had been all along
the first time i saw my angel’s face

heaven must be in texas
'cause that’s where my angel is from
just a little north of dallas
south of where that red river runs
she is a perfect little lady
and she truly is the one
heaven must be in texas
'cause that’s where my angel is from

oh heaven must be in texas
'cause that’s where my angel is from
