    (James Lewis/Jimmy Holiday/Cliff Chambers)

    Well, I met a girl from Texas 'bout a year ago
    Hadn't known her for too long when I had to let her go
    You see, she had a razor, was ten inches or so
    And every night you'd hear her knocking at my door
    She said, "Baby, I'll give you the clothes on my back
    You can have everything that I've got in my shack
    But if you ever try to leave they'll take your out in sack
    'Cause me and my razor will see to that"

    That's the way the girls are from Texas
    That's the way the girls are from Texas
    That's the way the girls are from Texas

    I thought about my situation, decided not to tarry
    For my own self preservation I decided we should marry
    When the preacher started reading 'bout 'till death do us part
    I told him, "Skip it, we had that understanding right from the start"

    That's the way the girls are from Texas
    That's the way the girls are from Texas (Houston to San Antone)
    That's the way the girls are from Texas (Got to love 'em right or leave 'em
    alone)

    Well, we settled down, got me a little old job, '65 Fairlane Ford
    Every Friday night I would stop in and cash my pay check down at the grocery
    store
    They had a little girl worked in there, must have been about seventeen
    She was the cutest thing I had ever seen
    It's the same old story and I'm afraid it wasn't too very long
    Before we had fallen deeply in love and I knew it was wrong
    I said baby, we got to stop this thing right here
    Or my woman is gonna cut my throat from ear to ear, that's right
    In tearful supplication, she looked up in my face
    I could feel her heart was breaking as these sad words she did say
    "You should have told me you was married, baby
    She pulled out a forty-five and let me have it, right smack between the eyes

    That's the way the girls are from Texas
    That's the way the girls are from Texas
    That's the way the girls are from Texas

    She was guilty, I was dead
    Now, what'd you think that the old judge said ?
    "Ah, that's just the way the girls are down here in Texas
    Case dismissed!"

    That's the way the girls are from Texas
    That's the way the girls are from Texas (Houston to San Antone)
    That's the way the girls are from Texas (Got to love 'em right or leave 'em
    alone, boy)
