OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
I don't know if cowboys have a heaven
And I ain't even sure they'd let me in
But if they don't then I want to go to Texas
'Cause Texas is as close as I've been

Circle left
Say when I die I may not go to heaven
Left allemande and swing and promenade
Just promenade a little lady right back to Texas
You'll be as close to heaven as anybody's been


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Those heads square thru you get me 4 hands around
Dosado the corner there
Swing thru tonight and let the boys run right
Ferris wheel, centers do a curlique and
Make a right hand star and turn it all the way around that land
Swing that ole corner, promenade
Just promenade a little lady right back to Texas
You'll be as close to heaven as anybody's been


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads promenade go halfway around
Lead out to the right and circle to a line
Walk right in to the middle and back, pass the ocean now
Spin chain the gears, gotta go all the way
Said, when I die I may not go to heaven
Boys circulate and swing the corner there, promenade
Hey promenade a little lady right back to Texas
You'll be as close to heaven as anybody's been

Texas (When I Die) Lyrics ID: 2141

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

New York couldn't hold my attention
Detroit City couldn't sing my song
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in Dallas
I won't care, 'cause at least I'll know I'm home.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

I'd ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
Just to hear Willie Nelson sing a country song
Beer just ain't as cold in old Milwaukee
My body's here, but my soul's in San Antone.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

When I die I may not go to heaven
I don't know if they let cowboys in
If they don't just let me go to Texas, boy!
Texas is as close as I've been.

Lyrics by Ed Bruce, Patsy Bruce, and Bobby Borchers.
Recorded by Tanya Tucker.
