George Strait - I Can't See Texas From Here Lyrics




I come and go as I please.
From down here, up North and inbetween,
But baby it's a shame 'cause I always feel the same
When I can't see Texas from here.

[Chorus:]
I can't see Texas from here.
No matter how I try, it makes me want to cry.
So if you see me lookin' down,
I'm tryin' not to show this frown
'Cause I can't see Texas from here.

I can't say I don't like Tennessee.
The people here have all been good to me.
So please don't take offense if I start to get intense
Just 'cause I can't see Texas from here.

[Chorus 2x]

'Cause I can't see Texas, I can't see Texas,
I can't see Texas from here.

  4. Pondy Hsu

    Now I come and go as I please.
    From down here, up North and in between,
    But baby it's a shame 'cause I always feel the same
    When I can't see Texas from here.

    I can't see Texas from here.
    No matter how I try, it makes me want to die.
    So if you see me lookin' down,
    I'm tryin' not to show this frown
    'Cause I can't see Texas from here.
    *******
    I can't say I don't like Tennessee.
    The people here have all been good to me.
    So please don't take offense if I start to get intense
    Just 'cause I can't see Texas from here.

    I can't see Texas from here.
    No matter how I try, it makes me want to die.
    So if you see me lookin' down,
    I'm tryin' not to show this frown
    'Cause I can't see Texas from here.
    *******
    I can't see Texas from here.
    No matter how I try, it makes me want to die.
    So if you see me lookin' down,
    I'm tryin' not to show this frown
    'Cause I can't see Texas,I can't see Texas,
    I can't see Texas, from here...

  5. jennifur sun

    wonder why George didn;t think this was good song. on of my favs. does anyone know who played that FIDDLE

    Ethan Weeter

    jennifur sun Buddy Spicher maybe. Not Gene Edlers, surprisingly enough. The man who has made the Amarillo by Morning fiddle solo immortal in live concerts.

  6. nemesisgenius

    Too bad he and MCA didn't release this as a single. would have gone #1. Not only could George sing them to the top, he can write good songs as well!!

  7. Troy Pugh

    It WAS the only song he both wrote and recorded between 1981 and 2009.

  8. Cody Good Night

    The cowboy rides away concert at atand t stadium was awesome he wil be king Jorge straight fore ever

  9. isaiah hendershot

    straight Jorge strait fan the concert at at and t was awesome he will be king Jorge fore ever

  10. Devon Walter

    I'm bummed that he retired from the singing business. Him and Randy Travis are my two favorite country singers ever.

    Cliff M.

    He just retired from touring. He's still going to record.

    Liberty Construction

    Cliff M. He’s touring again!

    Allen Mcclanahan

    The best

    Ethan Weeter

    He retired from headline touring, not touring.

    Ethan Weeter

    Good taste in music.

  11. mph cabeza

    Texas Swing feels like home ...

  12. Huguette17

    Super song and super singer.

  13. Sonny Earp

    Hi Winston, I'm a new subscriber to your channel. You have an awesome George Strait music collection. I was looking for an old tune from the album Strait From The Heart, it is called The Steal of the Night, I was wondering if you had that song to up load? No one else has that song from George on YouTube. Thanks.

  14. Benjamin Nasser

    I love George Strait and, I love Texas

  15. Tony Lux

    Hey this is the first time I heard this song....and I like it!!! Great song George!!

  16. eddie dawson

    Hey George, how 'bout a few more western swing songs again?

  17. texalmighty1

    Pretty much this.

  18. Heidi Helene Christensen

    HE AND his son have written other songs but i think this was his first!

  19. Christian Costello

    Only song George Strait ever wrote.

    w6p7a

    Christian Costello He's written numerous songs. "I don't want to talk it over anymore", "just can't go on dying like this" to name a few. George was a great songwriter, far better than he gives himself credit for.

    Ethan Weeter

    I agree. If George has put more effort into it, he could maybe be closer to Garth in terms of album sales. Same with his guitar playing. He acts like he is not a great player, but you can tell he knows how to play well.

  20. Heidi Helene Christensen

    I LOVE this man so much! it has been about 20 years since I Have had the honor of seeing him perform in concert but I have been in love with him for about 30 or more years!

  21. Ane

    This is one of my favorites in concert. I went to 11 "Strait" years of concerts, starting with the George Strait Festival's on into the '00's. We only stopped going because, 1) His tour stops changed and weren't around here and 2) The drunker. Seems as the years went on the worse they got. Singing LOUD and off key with a drunken stupor and spilling beer everywhere. I don't drink and can't stand the smell of beer so, having it dumped on you and spilled all over your stuff isn't fun.

    Thanks, Ane

    @WinstonFreedman thank-you

  23. WinstonFreedman

    @rashelle97
    It is a fun song! I'm glad you're trying to learn it. Maybe some day you'll be "the next big nothing!" Good luck!

  24. rashelle97

    man I'll bet this songs a bunch of fun to sing this is coming from a 14 year old girl that is learning to play guitar in a small ranch town in Texas and my town has no guitar instructor so I'm having to teach myself and it's really hard

    Ethan Weeter

    rashelle97 Gotten better at guitar now?
