    THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

    ( Texas Style)




    'Twas the night before Christmas
    In Texas , you know,
    Way out on the prairie,
    Without any snow.

    Asleep in their cabin
    Were Buddy and Sue,
    A'dreamin' of Christmas,
    Like me and you.

    Not stockings, but boots
    At the foot of their bed,
    For this was in Texas ,
    What more need be said.

    When all of a sudden
    From out the still night,
    There came such a ruckus
    It gave me a fright.

    And I saw 'cross the prairie
    Like a shot from a gun,
    A loaded up buckboard
    Come out at a run.

    The driver was geein'
    And hawin' with will,
    And horses, not reindeer,
    He drove with such skill.

    C'mon, Buck and Poncho,
    And Prince to the right,
    There'll be plenty travelin'
    For y'all tonight.

    The driver, in Wranglers
    And a shirt that was red,
    Had a 10-gallon Stetson
    On top of his head.

    As he stepped from his buckboard
    He was really a sight,
    A beard and a moustache
    So curly and white.

    As he burst in the cabin,
    The children awoke,
    And were both so astonished
    That neither one spoke.

    He filled up their boots
    With such presents galore
    That neither could think
    Of a single thing more.

    When Buddy recovered
    The use of his jaws,
    He asked in a whisper,
    'Are you Santa Claus?'

    'Am I the real Santa?
    Well, what do you think?'
    And he smiled as he gave
    A mysterious wink.

    Then he leapt in the buckboard
    And said in his drawl,
    'To the children of Texas ,
    Merry Christmas, y'all!
