If You're Gonna Play In Texas Alabama
[A] [A] [A] [A]
chorus 1:(A) If you're gonna play in (E)Texas,
You (D)gotta have a fiddle in the (A)band.
That lead guitar is hot,
(E)but not for (D)"Lousiana Man".(E)
So (F#m)rosin up that (E)bow for "Faded Love"(D)
and let's all (A)dance.
If you're gonna play in (E)Texas,
You (D)gotta have a fiddle in the (F#m)band.
[F#m] [E] [D] [D] [A] [A] [A] [A]
verse 1:I re-(A)member down in Hou-(E)ston
we were (D)puttin' on a show(A)
When a cowboy in the back(E) stood up and (D)yelled,
He said, "We love(A) what you're do-(E)in'.
Boys(D) don't get us wrong(A),
There's just somethin' (E)missin' in your (A)song.
(repeat Chorus 1)
verse 2:So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight.
Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case.
You say y'all all wanna two-step. You say ya wanna doe-si-doe.
Well, here's a fiddlin' song before we go.
(Chorus 2--same as chorus 1, except last line goes:
...gotta have a fiddle in the (A)band)
repeat and fade
