Lyrics
TORNADO TEX


CHORUS

TODAYS? RODEO COWBOYS ARE ALL MIGHTY GOOD
YET ONE COWBOY STANDS ABOVE ALL ?CAUSE HE SHOULD
HE FACED DEATH WHEN THE BRAVEST ALL BROKE AND RAN
THIS IS HIS STORY, TORNADO TEX THE MAN!

I WAS WORKING THE RODEO UP IN HOUSTON
WHEN I HEAR THIS ROAR LIKE A STAMPEDE SON
I NEAR SWALLOWED MY COFFEE INCLUDING MY CUP
?CAUSE ALL AT ONCE THE SKY?S CHUTE OPENED UP!
DOWN CHARGED THIS TORNADO SNORTING IN THE AIR
A BULLISH WHIRLWIND WITH A KILLER STARE

INSTEAD OF ONE FUNNEL THIS TORNADO HAD TWO
HORNS OF DESTRUCTION COMING OUT OF THE BLUE
THOUSANDS OF KIDS WERE IN THE STANDS THAT DAY
ONLY TORNADO TEX STOOD IN THAT TORNADO?S WAY
QUICKER THAN LIGHTNING TEX TOSSED HIS LASSOE
THEN SWUNG ON ITS BACK, HE WAS A HERO?S HERO

REPEAT CHORUS

THAT TORNADO TWISTED, TURNED AND SPUN AROUND
ALMOST THROWING TORNADO TEX TO THE GROUND
TEX TURNED THAT TORNADO WITH ALL OF HIS MIGHT
AWAY FROM THOSE KIDS ALL COWERING FROM FRIGHT
DIGGING IN HIS SPURS AND WITHOUT A SPECK OF FEAR
TEX RODE THAT TORNADO INTO THE ATMOSPHERE!

WITH A BIG HOOP AND A HOLLER TEX YELLED DOWN TO ALL
DON?T WORRY OR FRET ABOUT ME I?M HAVING A BALL
THIS IS BETTER THAN HORSES OR BULLS ANY DAY
I?M UP IN THE CLOUDS AND I?M HERE TO STAY
EACH TIME THAT TEXAS BLUE SKY TURNS STORMY
I MARVEL AT TORNADO TEX AND HIS BRAVERY!!

REPEAT CHORUS then repeat Tornado Tex the Man as song fades
