The West ain’t Texas
The West ain’t Tenessee
The West ain’t Kansas
Or Oklahoma or Sioux City
We’ve got mountains to climb
Before we reach the sea

The West ain’t no Pontiac
It ain’t an Airstream
The West ain’t no Cadillac
It ain’t a flatbed, it ain’t an 18
We’ve got wild horses to ride
Before we runnin free

The West ain’t no fiddle and bow
It ain’t an SG
The West ain’t your daddy’s dobro
It ain’t a shiny lapsteel
You’ve got skins and tongues to learn
Before you’re singin for me
