Description:
The Devil in Hell we're told, was chained. And a thousan years he there remained. He neither complained nor did he groon, But determined to start a hell of his own. Where he could torment the souls of men, Without being chained in an underground pen. So he asked the Lord if he had on hand Anything left when He made this land. The Lord said, "Yes, I have plenty of land, But I left it down on the Rio Grande. The fact it, old boy, the stuff is real poor, But you're welcome to it and plenty more." So the evil went down to look at the truck Andsaid if he took it as a gift he was stuck, For after exaining it carefully and well He concluded the place was too dry for a hell. So in order to get it off His hand, TheLord promised to water the land, For He had some water or rather some dregs Rather cathartic and smelled like bad eggs. Hence the trade was closed and the deed was given And the Lord went back to His home in Heaven. The Devil said to himsle, "I have all that is needed To make a good hell," and hence he succeeded He began to put thorns all over the trees. And mixed up the sand with millions of fleas. He scattered tarantulas along the roads; Put thorns on cactus and horns on foods He lengthened the horns of the Taxas steers And put an addition to the rabbit's ears. He put a little devil in the broncho steed And poisoned the feet ofthecentipede. Therattlesnake bites you, the scorpion stings, The mosquito delights you with his buzzing wings. Sand-burs cause you to jig and dance, And thosewho sit down will have ants in their pants. The Devil then said that throughout the land He'd arrange to keep up the Devil's own brand, The heat in the summer is one hundred and the, Too hot for the Devil, too hot for the men. And all should be mavericks unless they bore marks and scratches, or bites by the score. Go see for yourself and you can tell Tis a hell of a place he has for a hell.

Description:
By the Author of "Hell in Texas" The lord said he wished to show To His erring children have below That He had plenty in His Store For those who knocked at heaven's door, And hence would give to some right land Samples of blessings from His right hand; And if you think there's Cause to doubt it, Just Listen to how God reasoned about it. These gifts I can't give to the States in the East The weather's too damp for both man and beast, And the Northern States I consider together, I make a mistake when I put up their weather, For in blizzard and cyclones, tornadoes and cold, no one can enjoy good gifts, I am told. Tis too cold, hence westward I shall go to the land Where th fig and th orange trees groww For here it is true is a beautiful land, But then here's the fogs, the dust and sand; And those wo enjoy these gifts as they must Can't do it in the sand and the fogs and the dust. At last reaching Texas, a State of some size He decided to give her His capital prize; He opened wide His bountiful hand. He dispersed His blessing all over the land, And hecne we enjoy as these blessings of ours Ten months in the year of the most beautiful flowers; And nights most delighful, fanned by th breeze, The comes sweeping across her from over the seas; And Italy's skies with our own won't compare; Nor is her land more fertile nor ladies more fair And the grasses that grow on the range of ours Are kept beautifully green by thesesweet supper showers. And as we know, to enjoy our wealth, We ust first scure the blessing of health. Thence we declare to the sick in each clime That health yiou can have, if you come here in time And now to our friends in the East, North and West We want you to come here and with us be blest. For God never intended that we all aloe should enjoy all these blessings that he has bestown.

We're down here in old Texas, Where you never have the blues, Where the bandits steal the jitneys And the Marshals steal the booze; Where the buildings horn the skyline. Where the populace is boost, Where they shoot men just for pastime. Where you get up in the morning In a world of snow and sleet And you come home in the evening Suffocoting in the heat; Where the jitneys whiz about you And the street cars barely creep; where the burglars pick your pockets While you "lay me down to sleep;" Where the bulldogs all have rabies, And the rabbits they have fleas; Where the big girls, like the wee ones, Wear their dresses to their knees; Where you whisk out in the morning Just to give your health a chance; Say "Howdy" to some fellow who Shoots big holes in your pants; where wise owls are afraid to hoot And birds don't dare to sing. For it's hell down here in Texas, Where they all shoot on the wing. Where the chickens never roost, where teh stickup men are wary and the bullets fall like hail; Where each pocket has a pistol and each pistol's good for jail; Where they always hang to jury. Wheere they never hang a man If you call a man a liar, you Get home the best you can;
