OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies promenade go one time around
Well get back home and swing your man go round
Join hands, circle to the left go walkin' around the ring
Allemande left and ya weave the ring
That's the way the girls are in Texas
Dosado and ya promenade
That's the way the girls are in Texas
Gotta love 'em right or leave 'em alone


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

The heads (sides) square thru in the middle get four hands around
Do a dosado
Swing thru tonight, let them boys run to the right
And ya ferris wheel around in the middle
Do a right & left thru, and then veer to the left, crossfire
Do a walk & dodge, swing and ya promenade
That's the way the girls are in Texas
Gotta love 'em right or leave 'em alone

The Girls From Texas  (1967)

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 you out in a 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
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, she had that understanding right from the start"

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 you out in a sack
'Cause me and my razor will see to that"

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

Well we settled down, got me a little old job, '65 Fairlane Ford
Every Friday night I would stop in and cash my paycheck
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
She was guilty, I was dead
(That's the way the girls are from Texas)
Now, what'd you think that the old judge said?
(That's the way the girls are from Texas)
"Ah, that's just the way the girls are down here in Texas
Case dismissed!"

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

Lyrics by Cliff Chambers, Jimmy Holiday and Jimmy Lewis.
Recorded by Jimmy Lewis; Ry Cooder.
