Lone Star


I have seen your snow capped mountains
Wantonly reaching for indego skies
Have wandered barefoot through your valleys
Swollen with your lush green pride

I have splashed within your ocean
Lain upon your sun baked sand
Called my name into your canyons
Bathed within the Rio Grande

And I’ve heard your many voices
Cayotes wail and cattles low
The whipporwill and bullfrogs hum
Each one sings a song of home

And I have loved you, oh my darlin’
From your mountain, shore and plain
And bare your spirit ere I wander
Til longing brings me home again
