Hank Williams Jr – Texas Women Lyrics

I’ve got some fond memories of San Angelo
And I’ve seen some beauty queens in El Paso
But the best lookin’ women that I’ve ever seen
Have all been in Texas and all wearin’ jeans

I’m a country plowboy not a urban cowboy
And I don’t ride bulls but I have fought some men
Drive a pickup truck trust in God and luck
And I live to love Texas women

I thought I’d seen beauty in far away places
Till I looked upon those Houston faces
Spent Hollywood nights up in Beverly Hills
But they weren’t nothin’ like one night down in Brownsville

I’m a country plowboy not a urban cowboy…

I’m a pretty fair judge of the opposite sex
And I ain’t seen nothin’ that will touch ’em yet
They may be from Waco or out in Lampasas
But one thing about it they all come from Texas

I’m a country plowboy not a urban cowboy…

I’m an Oiler fan not a soccer man
And my arms are red and so is my blood
And they make it boil with that soft Texas drawl
And I love ’em all Texas women
