Carter Family, The - My Heart's Tonight In Texas Lyrics




In the distant state of Texas by the silver Rio Grande
Strolled a couple out one evening was two sweethearts hand in hand
Was a rich man's pretty daughter and the lad she loved so dear
Though tomorrow they must part for many a year

My heart's tonight in Texas though I'm far across the sea
The band is playing "Dixie" and there's where I long to be
Dad says the earl I'll marry but although here is my hand
My heart's tonight in Texas by the silver Rio Grande

To Europe she was going to become a lady grand
Where her father hopes an earl, of course, she'll wed
But she went away next morning and her heart was true to Jack
But a letter came one day and this it read

My heart's tonight in Texas though I'm far across the sea
The band is playing "Dixie" and there's where I long to be
Dad says the earl I'll marry but although here is my hand
My heart's tonight in Texas by the silver Rio Grande

At a stately ball in England stood the Texas lad one night
The scenes were all splendid and the lights were dazzling bright
The earl knelt beside her asking her to be his bride
But her thoughts were by the silver Rio Grande

My heart's tonight in Texas though I'm far across the sea
The band is playing "Dixie" and there's where I long to be
Dad says the earl I'll marry but although here is my hand
My heart's tonight in Texas by the silver Rio Grande
