Tex Williams – That’s What I Like About the West Lyrics

Now a fella asked me the other day
What I liked about the West?
So I got together my arguments just to prove it’s the best
I called the Mayor, the chief of police
And even the Governors home
To get the facts to back me up
And here’s what they said on the phone
We got buffalo, deer, t-bone steaks, fruits, fish, and fowl
Wine and grapes, figs and dates, a chamber of commerce smile
Liquid sunshine, legal moonshine, Reno, Frisco, Tahoe
Man you name it and if we ain’t got it
We’ll get it
(That’s what I like about the West)
(That’s what I like about the West)
You can prove that you’re a man
Drinkin’ fruit juice from a can
(Ride em cowboy ride that pony West)
You can take a gal to the picture show
But the place to build morale
Is to take her for a moonlight stroll behind the old corral
Things down there are rootin’ and tootin’
There’s fightin’, fuedin’, and stuff
A prowlin’ stranger could cause a shootin’
Cause enough of a thing’s enough!
I met a gal at a rodeo and we took a ride that night
We saw a stack of new-mown hay
Man you can see my plight
She said let’s sit
We smurred and purred and finally to top it off
I got myself a mate for life man I just couldn’t help myself
(That’s what I like about the West)
(That’s what I like about the West)
Steal a gal and they’re on the loose
Steal a horse you get the noose
(Ride em cowboy ride that pony)
Ride em cowboy ride that pony
(Ride em cowboy ride that pony West)
Ride em cowboy ride that pony West
(West)
West
