Matt Kenseth: “The stars at night are big and bright…deep in the heart of Texas. The prairie sky is wide and high…deep in the heart of Texas. The sage in bloom is like perfume…deep in the heart of Texas. Reminds me of the one that I love…deep in the heart of Texas. The coyotes wail along the trail…deep in the heart of Texas. The rabbits rush around the brush…deep in the heart of Texas. The cowboys cry, “Ki yippee yi!”…Deep in the heart of Texas. The doggies bawl and bawl and bawl…Deep in the heart of Texas.”
From the Pit Box:
Jason Ratcliff: “’God blessed Texas with His own hand, brought down angels from the Promised Land. He gave them a place where they could dance, if you wanna see Heaven, brother, here’s your chance. I’ve been sent to spread the message…God blessed Texas! First He made the sunshine, then He made the water deep. Then He gave us moonlight for all the world to see. Well, everybody knows that the Lord works in mysterious ways, He took a rest, then on the very next day… God blessed Texas with His own hand, brought down angels from the Promised Land. Gave them a place where they could dance, if you wanna see Heaven, brother, here’s your chance. Well, I’ve been sent to spread the message, God blessed Texas!”
