A   A   A   A

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
