What's Left Of Texas? lyrics

There's a Walmart Supercenter in the field where I use to bale my daddys hay
Where we used to ride our horses
Now sits a brand new cafe

The ole' house where my grand-dad was born
Was torn down in 1973

Their makin' off with everytyhing that's left
So what's left of Texas for me

(Chorus)
There takin' God's name out of the schools
And Robert Earl Keen right off the radio
Their takin' John Wayne out of Hollywood
Replaced him with some broke-back picture show
Ole' Waylon would sure be mad as hell if he knew they cuffed ole' Willie for smokin' weed
Their makin' off with everything that's left
So what's left of Texas for me

There used to be this ole' honky tonk
Right down there beside that ole' town square
That's where I had my first dance
As I ran my fingers through her auburn hair
It was torn down to build a dealership
Of some foreign car nobody'd ever seen
Their makin' off with everything that's left So what's left of Texas for me

(Chorus)
There takin' God's name out of the schools
And Robert Earl Keen right off the radio
Their takin' John Wayne out of Hollywood
Replaced him with some broke-back picture show
Ole' Waylon would sure be mad as hell if he knew they cuffed ole' Willie for smokin' weed
Their makin' off with everything that's left
So what's left of Texas for me

There takin' God's name out of the schools
And Gary P. Nunn right off the radio
Their takin' John Wayne out of Hollywood
Replaced him with some broke-back picture show
Ole' Waylon would sure be mad as hell if he knew they cuffed ole' Willie for smokin' weed
Their makin' off with everything that's left
So what's left of Texas for me

Yeah, their makin' off with everything that's left
So what's left of Texas for me
