This Country's Bigger Than Texas
Recorded by Gene Watson
Written by Hugh Prestwood
G 
Standing on a corner in  
D7 
Manhattan
 
I finally flagged a taxi  
G 
down
 
And as I climbed into the back  
D7 
seat
 
I heard a more familiar  
G 
sound
 
From the  
Am 
radio came  
C 
gliding 
 
 
D7 
through
 
The sliding Nashville pedal  
G 
steel
 
And as the driver took me  
C 
rid
D7 
ing
 
His fingers danced upon the  
G 
wheel
 
C 
This country's bigger than Texas
 
It's bigger than Nashville Tenne
G 
ssee
C 
It reaches border to border
 
It  
Dm 
stretches shinning sea to  
D7 
sea
 
This country's got no boun
G 
daries
 
A redneck farmer out of  
D7 
Macon
 
Met a lady lawyer from L
G 
A
 
They did not have a thing in  
D7 
common
 
Or at least it seemed that  
G 
way
 
And then the  
Am 
jukebox started  
C 
play
D7 
ing
 
Just your average country  
G 
song
 
And both their  
Am 
bodies started  
C 
sway
D7 
ing
 
They danced the two step all night  
G 
long

Repeat #2

D7 
This country's got no bounda
G 
ries
