[Intro] (Drums and Bass only) Have you heard the story of A girl named Beth, now known as Tex Her life's tale is a bloody trail Her name fits like a glove Her daddy sighed as she slammed the door She'd said to him I'm Beth no more My life's dream is to kill for green But first I'll join the Corps Her daddy said, you're just a girl What makes you think that you won't sink My name is tex and I'm like a hex My playground is the world [Riff 1] [Riff 2] (Drums and Bass only) Basic turned her gun to gold Soon had it made, she'd hit by trade Amassing kills, she proved her skills Make your blood run cold [Riff 1] [Riff 2] [Riff 3] [Riff 4] (Drums and Bass only) I once saw texas at a bar Sippin rye, with some apple pie With a distant stare, like she didn't care She said what's with the guitar I must admit my lips went numb Some butter bar said, his face all red She's too good, you're driftin wood Said boy you'd better run Texas said sir keep your peace My heart is free, and so is he I'll give it to, any man who's true The safeties were released He drew before he replied But Tex was hot, and he was not He lay dead, While texas bled Crimson on her side Riff 1 (over lyrics) Yellow of rose of Texas clad in black Lonely star tattooed upon her back Double Tex, she'll hit you like a truck Double Tex and she'll mess you up [Riff 2] [Riff 3] (x2) (Drums and Bass only) Texas said This could be my last I guess I gotta go, and now you know I want a song, to live for long It's a fair request Texas made it out I heard But her one need, I did heed I think of Beth, while mocking death Like a mocking bird [Outro]
