magic of the holidays 17: when it's christmas time in texas

Blanco County Courthouse...Johnson City, Texas...Christmas Night, 2007

 

When it's Christmas time in Texas

It's a very special time for me

In Texas we'll be swingin' 'round the Christmas tree

Dancin' to a Christmas melody

When it's Christmas time in Texas

It might look just like a summer day

There may not be snow in San Antonio

But it's a Texas Christmas to me.

Chorus:

When Santa Claus slips over the border

It'll sound a little different when he sings

He'll hear those twin fiddles playin'

Christmas songs with a touch of western swing

There may not be snow in San Antonio

But it's a Texas Christmas to me.

--- Instrumental ---

When it's Christmas time in Texas

I love to hear those Christmas carolers sing

People on the go children's faces all aglow

Wondrin' what Santas going to bring

Grandpa's been chasin' grandma around

Tryin' to catch her 'neath the mistletoe

Everything is right the lone star's shinin' bright

But it's a Texas Christmas to me.

Chorus:

When Santa Claus crosses over the border

It'll sound a little different when he sings

He'll hear those twin fiddles playin'

Christmas songs with a touch of western swing

There may not be snow in San Antonio

But it's a Texas Christmas to me.

And here's wishin' you all a merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Texas and me...

 

George Strait, "When It's Christmas Time in Texas"
