I believe the name of the song is "Beautiful Texas" but I know it includes the phrases "Beautiful, Beautiful Texas,....Where the beautiful Blue Bonnet grows "

Oh Beautiful, Beautiful Texas Where the beautiful bluebonnets grow, We're proud of our forefathers, Who fought at the Alamo.

You can live on the plains or the praries, or out where the seabreezes blow, But your still in Beautiful Texas The most Beautiful state that I know!

Written by W. Leo Daniel, former governor of Texas and radio announcer.

Lyrics copied from
(That page also has a midi file.)

W. Lee O'Daniel

1. You've all read the beautiful stories
Of the countries far over the sea,
From whence came our ancestors
To establish this land of the free.
There are some folks who still like to travel,
To see what they have over there,
But when they go look,
It's not like the book,
And they find there is none to compare—

CHORUS: To beautiful, beautiful Texas,
Where the beautiful bluebonnets grow.
We're proud of our forefathers
Who fought at the Alamo.
You can live on the plains or the mountains,
Or down where the sea breezes blow,
And you're still in beautiful Texas,
The most beautiful place that I know.

2. You can travel on beautiful highways,
By the city, the village and farm,
Or sail above on the skyways,
And the beauty below you will charm:
White cotton, green forests, blue rivers,
Golden wheat fields, and fruit trees that bear.
You can look till doomsday,
And then you will say,
That Texas has beauty to spare.

CHORUS: Oh, beautiful....

3. In this song about beautiful Texas,
There is one thing we have to say.
About 6 million are proud
That they are here to stay.
It's great to be healthy and happy,
And that seems to be our good fate.
So let us all smile,
For life is worthwhile,
When we live in this beautiful state—

CHORUS: Of beautiful....
