I'm Going To Leave Ol' Texas Now

I learned this song in 2nd grade.  My teacher played the guitar, and taught us a lot of fun songs.  She was one of the main reasons I ever started playing guitar, and all the songs she taught us were great.

This was a first time through for this group-my nephews, friends and brother.  I was down visiting, and this was really a treat to get to play and sing with them!

This song is in the key of D, and A is the only other cord in this song.  One person sings the first line and holds it out, and the group repeats after them.  It is easy to do around a camp fire, or a group where no one knows each other songs.

I'm Going To Leave Ol' Texas Now


Chords and Lyrics for I'm Going To Leave Ol' Texas Now

D
I'm going to leave….. (echo), Ol' Texas now…….
                         A                                        D
They've got no use……., for the longhorn cow……

They've plowed and fenced…….   My cattle range…….
                          A                                   D
And the people there……..    Are all so strange……

I'll say adios……  to the Alamo…………
                      A                               D
And turn my head………   toward Mexico………

I'll take my horse…….   I'll take my rope…….
                   A                             D
And hit the trail……..   Upon a lope………..
