The Texas Star
By Terri Hendrix/Lloyd Maines

Anne’s with Barbara Liz and Molly
In the sunshine watching the rivers
Run through Texas like fences and ranches
Oak trees and cattle highways and truth

That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
She’ll light up the midway at the State Fair again

Education was King
With four queens on our side
Anne took on Texas
Barbara took on civil rights
Molly and Liz wrote the news with barbed wire
Above the capitol dome
I see their faces tonight

That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
She’ll light up the midway at the State Fair again

I can see them at that big round table
Between the thunder and lightening
They all come alive
Women united in justice and freedom
Blazing across the lone star skies

The goddess of liberty
Stands tall in the sun
The Lone Star Flag is in the middle
Of the bible and the gun
It rains too much
Or it don’t rain at all
Some want to cross our borders
Some want to build a wall

That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
She’ll light up the midway at the State Fair again
That old Texas Star she’s ready to spin
For corny dogs and Big Tex at the State Fair again

I can see them at that big round table
Between the thunder and lightening
They all come alive
Women united in justice and freedom
Blazing across the lone star skies
Anne Richards, Barbara Jordan, Liz Carpenter, and Molly Ivins
Are with Lady Bird Johnson looking at all the wildflowers
