C                                 F                        C
She was born in College Station; her daddy had a farmer’s PHD
C                                   G               
Her first steps were taken with the Corps on Kyle Field
C                              F                    C
When she graduated, she bought a maroon pick-up truck
C                                 G                                        C
They celebrated down at the Dixie Chicken when she opened her vet practice up
C                       F                                  C
Now he was born Austin, his daddy had a store down on the drag
C                                  G                        
Ever since the school had opened, relatives were Longhorn grads
C                            F                      C
His room was painted orange, he was getting his degree
C                                  G                C
In the band playing French horn, first row, second seat


Am         G
Gig ‘em Aggies, Hook ‘em Horns
F                  G          C
One side’s maroon, the other, burnt orange


C                        F                      C
He saw her at a concert, way before Robert Earl Keen
C                               G                          
She was wearin’ an Aggie shirt, to him it didn’t mean a thing
C                                      F                              C
He pushed his way on through the crowd like any ol’ hungry bull would do
C                                    G                       C
When he was close enough he shouted, "Hey, mind if I sit by you?"
C                                    F                      C
She turned around and stared at him, couldn’t believe her eyes
C                             G                        
He had a burnt orange jacket, Longhorns from side to side
C                                        F                     C
Well she looked again and took a chance, said "That’s OK with me"
C                               G                    C
Something in that second chance went beyond the rivalry


C                         F                  
When your eyes are closed and you’re in the dark,
C               G          C
The colors are all the same
C                       F                 C
Just two beating hearts not playing any games
Am          G
You can gig ‘em, you can hook ‘em
F            G
One thing’ll never change
C                         F                  
When your eyes are closed and you’re in the dark,
C              G         C
The colors are all the same


C                                 F                         C
When she went to meet his Mother, she was wearing a cowboy hat
C                                      G                                 
When they left they hugged each other, Mom said, "You’re always welcome back"
C                                F                                  C
When she took him home to Daddy, she worried about the ring in his ear
C                               G                            C
He was makin’ pretty good money but his tattoo was pretty clear
C                                 F                    C 
Well they decided to get married, bridesmaids wore maroon
C                                      G                
The ring bearer carried a burnt orange package to the groom
C                              F                             C
Well the ring that he gave her was diamond mounted on two thumbs
C                             G                         C
Sitting on a Longhorn cradle, cause when it’s said and done


C                         F                  
When your eyes are closed and you’re in the dark,
C               G          C
The colors are all the same
C                       F                 C
Just two beating hearts not playing any games
Am          G
You can gig ‘em, you can hook ‘em
F            G
One thing’ll never change
C                         F                  
When your eyes are closed and you’re in the dark,
C              G         C
The colors are all the same


C                                      F                   C
Now all they had to do was figure out where they’re gonna live
C                                        G                    
Well they flipped a coin and that is how she got her way over his
C                                     F                        C
Well they vacationed up in Kerrville, they went down to the coast
C                                 G                             C
Their first born they named Earl, you should have heard them boast
C                           F                        C
Every year at Thanksgiving, Earl could take either side
C                                   G                          
All the birthday gifts he was given were hints they couldn’t hide
C                                F                    C
There were 12th man T-shirts and Longhorns of every size 
C                         G                                   C
His first two words were, "Gig ‘em Bevo", always playing both sides



Am         G
Gig ‘em Aggies, Hook ‘em Horns
F                  G          C
One side’s maroon, the other, burnt orange


C                                   F                        C
When it came time to go to college, Earl didn’t know what to do
C                             G              
His Dad wanted him in Austin, his Mom in maroon
C                              F                          C
Well, the moral of this story, is if you listen to this song
C                                         G                           C
Where do y’all think he went to college?, well , you just might be wrong
C                                   F                         C
Well he tried both universities and you don’t have to wonder how
C        
He says with all sincerity...
G                              C
"I’m a Southwest Texas Bobcat now!"


C                         F                  
When your eyes are closed and you’re in the dark,
C               G          C
The colors are all the same
C                       F                 C
Just two beating hearts not playing any games
Am          G
You can gig ‘em, you can hook ‘em
F            G
One thing’ll never change
C                         F                  
When your eyes are closed and you’re in the dark,
C              G         C
The colors are all the same

Thanks for this tab. Keep up the good work. Texas Music is none other and beats the hell out of that Nashville pop music.
