lyrics

WELL, I SHURE HOPE HEAVEN HAS A TEXAS
WHEN IT’S TIME FOR ME TO RELOCATE
I’LL TIPTOE A RHINESTONE RIO GRANDE
& SNEAK ME A NAP AT THE PEARL SNAP GATES
I’LL REST IN PEACE UPON SEEIN’
THAT LONE STAR IN THE SKY
TEXAS, MY FRIEND FOR LIFE
MY TEJAS WHEN I DIE

& I KNOW HEAVEN’S GOTTA HAVE A MEXICO
‘CAUSE THAT TEQUILA’S SO DEVINE
SILVER OR GOLD
SALT & A LITTLE LIME
THEY DON’T JUST DRINK WINE
& I KNOW HEAVEN’S GOTTA HAVE A PLACE TO GO
WHERE THE PESOS CAN BUY ME LOVE
OH, & WHERE THERE’S A MEXICO
WELL, THERE’S A TEXAS ABOVE

& I’LL BE REDEEMED BY THE LIGHTS OF DALLAS
HALOGEN GREEN & A GOLDEN BALL
WHERE ANGELS FLY TOO CLOSE TO THE GROUND
SINGIN’ “HALLELUJAH” WITH A SOUTHERN DRAWL
& YOU KNOW HEAVEN HAS TO HAVE AN AUSTIN
THE WEIRDOS HAVE GOTTA DIE TOO
& SO, HEAVEN MUST HAVE AN EL PASO
SO I CAN PASS ON THROUGH

& I KNOW HEAVEN’S GOTTA HAVE AN OKLAHOMA
‘CAUSE THE STARS TAKE IT’S SHAPE
WHEN I SEE THE BIG DIPPER
I KNOW IT’S OK
SOONER OR LATER, PER SE
& THEY’VE GOTTA HAVE CASINOS
& CHOCTAW BINGO
OH, CARRY ME OKLAHOMA
THERE’S A TEXAS BELOW

I SAID HOT DAMN! THEM COUNTRY GALS TURN ME ON
WHEN THEY’RE DANCIN’ LIKE DOLLS ON STRINGS
I CAN’T IMAGINE A HEAVEN WITHOUT
A BONAFIDE PLACE WHERE THE COWGIRLS SWING
& I HEAR THAT ANGEL BAND A TUNIN’ UP
ON A RIVER WALK PAVED IN GOLD
WELL, I’LL TWO-STEP THE BANKS OF THE HOLY WATER
TO “THE ROSE OF SAN ANTONE”

& I BET YOU HEAVEN HAS A LOUISIANE
JUST IN CASE OKLAHOMA’S NOT ENOUGH
WELL, THE GOOD LORD KNOWS I’M A GAMBLIN’ MAN
& I’LL BE A GAMBLIN’ MAN IN HEAVEN ABOVE
& THERE’S GOTTA BE A NEW ORLEANS WHERE THE SAINTS CAN GO TO REST
WHO DAT!
FROM THE HOUSE OF THE RISIN’ SUN
THERE’S A TEXAS WEST

YES, I SHURE HOPE HEAVEN HAS A TEXAS
EVEN IF IT’S HOTTER THAN HELL
MAYBE IT’LL RAIN, MAYBE IT’LL SNOW
EVEN IN HEAVEN
YOU NEVER CAN TELL
& SO, IF HEAVEN HAS A TEXAS
THERE I’LL RESIDE FOREVER BLESSED
DEEP IN THE HEART OF ETERNITY
T-E-X-A-S!
WELL, I SURE HOPE HEAVEN HAS A TEXAS

about

Justin Pickard Dallas, Texas

In the course of Justin Pickard’s musical pilgrimage, his songwriting has covered a gamut of subjects: smoking and drinking, the ins and outs of grave-robbery, love and loss, and UFOs that resemble bananas. These subjects in any other writer’s care may not coalesce as seamlessly as they do in the hands of Pickard, who ties them together with wit, passion and heart.
