Deep in the Heart of Texas

play music pause music
mute music

The stars at night, are big and bright,
deep in the heart of Texas,
The prairie sky is wide and high,
deep in the heart of Texas.
The sage in bloom is like perfume,
deep in the heart of Texas,
Reminds me of, the one I love,
deep in the heart of Texas.

The coyotes wail, along the trail,
deep in the heart of Texas,
The rabbits rush, around the brush,
deep in the heart of Texas.
The cowboys cry, "Ki-yip-pee-yi,"
deep in the heart of Texas,
The dogies bawl, and bawl and bawl,
deep in the heart of Texas.

Texas
For kids
The state of Texas has a saying—"Take Care of Texas." It means that people who live there should help make their state clean and pollution-free. A lot of what kids can do to take care of Texas, you can do where you live, too!
