chorus 1:[A] If you're gonna play in [E]Texas,
             You [D]gotta have a fiddle in the [A]band.
             That lead guitar is hot,
             [E]but not for [D]"Lousiana Man".[E]
             So [F#m]rosin up that [E]bow for "Faded Love"[D]
             and let's all [A]dance.
             If you're gonna play in [E]Texas,
             You [D]gotta have a fiddle in the [F#m]band.
F#m    E D   D   A   A   A   A

verse 1:I re-[A]member down in Hou-[E]ston
        we were [D]puttin' on a show[A]
        When a cowboy in the back[E] stood up and [D]yelled,
        "Cotton-Eyed [E]Joe"!
        He said, "We love[A] what you're do-[E]in'.
        Boys[D] don't get us wrong[A],
        There's just somethin' [E]missin' in your [A]song.

(repeat Chorus 1)

verse 2:So we dusted off our boots and put our cowboy hats on straight.
        Them Texans raised the roof when Jeff opened up his case.
        You say y'all all wanna two-step.  You say ya wanna doe-si-doe.
        Well, here's a fiddlin' song before we go.

(Chorus 2--same as chorus 1, except last line goes:
...gotta have a fiddle in the [A]band)

repeat and fade
