OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
You can deck me out with diamonds, you can teach me city ways
You can drive me in your new Mercedes Benz

Left allemande the corner, do a dosado
Left allemande and then weave around that ring
'Cause I cut my teeth on good old country swing
Dosado and then you promenade that ring
I can see that prairie moon from this New York hotel room
But you can't take the Texas out of me


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 you square thru four hands you go, with the corner do a dosado
Touch 1/4 then you walk & dodge
Do a partner trade and then
Go right & left thru, turn the girl and then
Pass the ocean there, recycle then
Swing that corner girl, promenade that ring
Come on rosin up them strings, honey let them fiddles sing
Cause you can't take the Texas out of me


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
So your friend sips soda water with a little twist of lime
Me, I gotta have Jack Daniels straight
I know I don't belong here, no one sings my kinda song here
And I sure do miss that good old Lone Star State

Four ladies chain, you turn the girl and then chain 'em right back home again
Promenade go walkin' round that ring
I can see that prairie moon from this New York hotel room
You can't take the Texas out of me

You Can't Take The Texas Out Of Me

You can deck me out in diamonds
You can teach me city ways
You can drive me in your new Mercedes Benz
But it's your sweet time you're wastin'
When you drag me out to Jasons
And expect me to dazzle all your sweet high rollin' friends

Cause I cut my teeth on go ol' Western Swang
I love a sentimental melody
Come on and rosin up them strings
Honey, let those fiddles sing
Cause you cain't take the Texas out of me

No, you cain't take the Texas out of me, oooh Lord
I'm as crazy as a calf on gypsum weed
I can feel that prairie moon from this New York hotel room
And you cain't take the Texas out of me

So your friends sip soda water with a little twist of lime
Me, I got to have Jack Daniels straight
Well, I know I don't belong here
No one plays my kind of song here
And I sure do miss that good old Lone Star State

Cause I cut my teeth on go ol' Western Swang
I love a sentimental melody
Come on rosin up them strings
Honey, let those fiddles sing
Cause you cain't take the Texas out of me

No, you cain't take the Texas out of me, oooh Lord
I'm as crazy as a calf on gypsum weed
I can feel that prairie moon from this New York hotel room
And you cain't take the Texas out of me

You cain't the Texas out of me

Lyrics by Lacy J. Dalton, J. Toomey and Fred Koller.
