1. Merry Texas Christmas Y'all

Songwriters: Jim Ross & Jackson Greer (BMI)

 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland 

Up Highway 6 just north of Houston, just south of Aggieland 

We’re turnin’ on a gazillion lights and we’re strikin' up the band 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland

 

Maw Claus is cookin' up somethin' good 

Doc Tic Tock's countin’ us down 

Marshall Frostbite's primin' the snow machines 

For a blizzard in Santa's Town 

And ol' Santa he’s ridin’ that Trail of Lights

Double-checkin’ every strand 

Gettin' ready for a Texas Christmas Y'all 

At Santa’s Wonderland

 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland 

Up Highway 6 just north of Houston, just south of Aggieland 

We’re turnin’ on a gazillion lights and we’re strikin' up the band 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland

 

Jenny wants to visit the petting zoo

Jimmy wants to ride the train 

Francesca wants a picture with Santa Claus

Frankie wants a funnel cake 

Little Bobby wants to ride the buckin’ bull 

Just to prove that he's a man 

They’re comin’ for a Texas Christmas Y'all 

At Santa’s Wonderland

 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland 

Up Highway 6 just north of Houston, just south of Aggieland 

We’re turnin’ on a gazillion lights and we’re strikin' up the band 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland

 

From the Llano Estacado 

On down to the Alamo 

From Big Bend in West Texas 

To the Padre Island Coast 

From Denton down to Brownsville, 

The Red River to The Rio Grande 

They’re comin’ for a Texas Christmas Y'all 

At Santa’s Wonderland

 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland 

Up Highway 6 just north of Houston, just south of Aggieland 

We’re turnin’ on a gazillion lights and we’re strikin' up the band 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all at Santa’s Wonderland

2. Country Christmas

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


On a cold and rainy December night 

A lost puppy shivered ‘neath our front porch light 

We dried him off and begged, "Can we bring him in?" 

Then daddy’s stern look softened to a grin… he said

 

Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Come on in, make yourself at home 

Leave your worries out on the doorstep 

Cuz tonight you're not alone               

Have a seat at the family table 

Let your spirit and heart be light 

Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Cuz you’re family tonight 

 

A long time ago on a winter's night 

A little baby was born ‘neath a heavenly light 

He taught us how to love, he taught us how to live 

He showed us how to care and how to give

 

Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Come on in, make yourself at home 

Leave your worries out on the doorstep 

Cuz tonight you're not alone               

Have a seat at the family table 

Let your spirit and heart be light 

Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Cuz you’re family tonight 


Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Come on in, make yourself at home 

Leave your worries out on the doorstep 

Cuz tonight you're not alone               

Have a seat at the family table 

Let your spirit and heart be light 

Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Cuz you’re family tonight 

 

Come on in to a Country Christmas 

Cuz you’re family tonight

3. Daddy Gotta Get Home

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


Can you hear my diesel hummin’ 

To a tune on the radio 

Christmas songs can leave you lonesome 

When you're far away from home 

Raindrops cryin’ on my windshield

Weatherman says it's gonna snow 

But mom and the kids are down in Texas 

And daddy gotta long way to go 

 

So come on north wind keep on blowin’ 

Push me down Texas way 

Cummin's diesel keep on rollin’ 

Eighteen wheelers clear my way 

Ain't no blizzard gonna slow me down 

I can't be late, there ain't no way 

Cuz mom and the kids are down in Texas 

And daddy gotta get home Christmas Day

 

A hotshot run to North Dakota 

Last minute cash for the holidays 

Too many hours on the blacktop 

With just a few winks along the way 

Made a quick stop in Nebraska 

Them wholesale outlets saved the day 

Now Santa's flatbed's full of wishes 

And daddy gotta get home Christmas Day

 

So come on north wind keep on blowin’ 

Push me down Texas way 

Cummin's diesel keep on rollin’ 

Eighteen wheelers clear my way 

Ain't no blizzard gonna slow me down 

I can't be late, there ain't no way 

Cuz mom and the kids are down in Texas 

And daddy gotta get home Christmas Day

 

And now the snow's pourin' down 

I can hardly see the ground 

And I'm showin' no bars on my phone 

So I'll say a Christmas prayer 

To the Big Man upstairs 

Then let love just guide me home

 

So come on north wind keep on blowin’ 

Push me down Texas way 

Cummin's diesel keep on rollin’ 

Eighteen wheelers clear my way 

Ain't no blizzard gonna slow me down 

I can't be late, there ain't no way 

Cuz mom and the kids are down in Texas 

And daddy gotta get home Christmas Day

 

Yeah mom and the kids are down in Texas 

And daddy gotta get home Christmas Day

4. A Corpus Christmas

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


Now who are you? And who am I? 

I don't recognize us anymore 

With you in your world, and me in mine 

We’re standing on opposite shores 

Now Christmas is comin' and its got me wonderin' 

There's gottta be a better way 

So maybe it's time for a different kind of holiday

 

Let's have a Corpus Christmas, a Reminisce-mas 

Back in our old stompin' ground 

Let's do some mem’ry-chasin' with seagulls racin' all around 

Let’s see them palm trees swayin', do some sailboat sleighin' 

Neath a snowy-white moon above 

Let's have a Corpus Christmas and remember why we fell in love

 

Don’t you remember dancin' near Port Aransas 

With our toes slidin' through the sand 

The boom box blarin', and tourists starin' 

At two island kids in fantasyland 

Now all that seems like some distant dream 

And our future is touch and go 

So, why not go Merry Ho Ho Ho back home

 

Let's have a Corpus Christmas, a Reminisce-mas 

Back in our old stompin' ground 

Let's do some mem’ry-chasin' with seagulls racin' all around 

Let’s see them palm trees swayin', do some sailboat sleighin' 

Neath a snowy-white moon above 

Let's have a Corpus Christmas and remember why we fell in love


Let’s see them palm trees swayin', do some sailboat sleighin' 

Neath a snowy-white moon above 

Let's have a Corpus Christmas and remember why we fell in love

 

Let's have a Corpus Christmas and remember why we fell in love

5. Harley Man

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


When Santa takes off from the old North Pole 

And he flies down to Texas where there ain't no snow 

He makes a dry landing with a skip and a hop 

And then he skids right into a Harley Davidson shop 

Then he picks out some handle bars and lays down some cash 

And then hits the gas

 

Now Santa Claus is runnin' through the Lone Star State 

While Rudolf and the reindeer are takin' a break 

He's makin' up time on his southern toy run 

Revin' up the motor and havin' him some fun 

And rockin' out to Creedence's Travelin' Band 

I never knew Santa was a Harley man

 

He runs from Dallas down to Austin down to San Antone 

Then up the Rio Grande to El Paso 

He runs through Amarillo, Lubbock and Abilene 

Texarkana down to Beaumont and Pasadena 

But on them Houston freeways he's itchin' to pass 

And then he hits the gas

 

Now Santa Claus is runnin' through the Lone Star State 

While Rudolf and the reindeer are takin' a break 

He's makin' up time on his southern toy run 

Revin' up the motor and havin' him some fun 

And rockin' out to Springsteen's E-Street Band

I never knew Santa was a Harley man

 

Ho... Ho, Ho, Ho... he's a Harley man 

Ho... Ho, Ho, Ho... he's a Harley man

 

I said, Santa Claus is runnin' through the Lone Star State 

While Rudolf and the reindeer are takin' a break 

He's makin' up time on his southern toy run 

Revin' up the motor and havin' him some fun 

And rockin' out to Skynard's Simple Man 

I never knew Santa was a Harley man

 

With leather saddlebags and a Padre Island tan 

I never knew Santa was a Harley man


Ho... Ho, Ho, Ho... he's a Harley man 

Ho... Ho, Ho, Ho... he's a Harley man

6. Santa Claus Is Comin' On A John Deere

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


Susie was a Louisiana farm girl 

And her daddy had an accident 

He'd been laid up in bed a couple of months 

And his fields hadn’t been plowed yet 

Susie wrote a letter to Santa Claus 

Said, “I don’t need nothin’ for me 

But if you can just help my daddy out 

I promise I’ll always believe"

 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

Cuz he gotta lotta row to hoe 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

He borrowed from the implement store 

He goin’ ‘round and ‘round and up and down 

Missin’ chickens and dodgin’ cows 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

Cuz he can’t let little Susie down, down, down

 

Rudolf took a look at his flight plan 

As the sun started goin’ down 

He said, “Santa, you’d better step on it, Boss 

Or we’ll miss our Christmas rounds” 

So Santa put the pedal to the metal, man 

And that diesel started pumpin’ out smoke 

But there's one thing I know about a John Deere tractor 

You hardly ever see one broke

 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

Cuz he gotta lotta row to hoe 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

He borrowed from the implement store 

He goin’ ‘round and ‘round and up and down 

Missin’ chickens and dodgin’ cows 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

Cuz he can’t let little Susie down, down, down

 

But then the folks all around that country town 

Put on a real goodwill display 

When they all pitched in to "git er done" 

And send Santa Claus on his way

 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

Cuz he gotta lotta row to hoe 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

He borrowed from the implement store 

He goin’ ‘round and ‘round and up and down 

Missin’ chickens and dodgin’ cows 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere 

Cuz he can’t let little Susie down, down, down

 

Santa Claus is comin’ on a John Deere tractor 

Cuz he can’t let little Susie down, down, down

 

He goin’ ‘round, ‘round, ‘round 

He goin’ ‘round, ‘round, ‘round 

He goin’ ‘round

7. West Pole Express

Songwriters: Robert Herridge, Nicole Lindsay, Jonathan Herridge (BMI)


All aboard! 

The West Pole Express is leaving the station!

And it's headed out for a TEXAS celebration!


Feel the chill of a Texas winter

Hear the West Pole engines play

Tap your feet to the sound of the fiddlers

Santa’s sure enough comin’ our way


Chooo Chooo, chuggin’ round the track

Chooo Chooo, Santa’s comin’ back

Chooo Chooo, come join the band

For Christmas down in Santa’s Wonderland


So get your boots and grab a hand

West Pole Express is playin’ with the band

Chuggin’ down the floor as the engine sways

Santa’s back to hear the fiddlers play


Chooo Chooo, chuggin’ round the track

Chooo Chooo, Santa’s comin’ back

Chooo Chooo, come join the band

For Christmas down in Santa’s Wonderland


Hey son! Here comes a passing train!

I see it dad!

Can you tell what it is?

Sure can! It’s the world-famous Orange Blossom Special!

8. Texas Santa Claus

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


Up on the housetop reindeer pause 

Out jumps Texas Santa Claus 

Down through the chimney with lots of toys 

All for the good little girls and boys

 

Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go 

Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go 

Up on the housetop, click, click, click 

And a Texas “Howdy” from Ol' Saint Nick

 

Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go 

Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go 

Up on the housetop, click, click, click 

And a Texas “Howdy” from Ol' Saint Nick

 

Jolly Texas Santa Claus tip your hat this way 

Please don’t tell a single soul what I’m ‘bout to say 

Christmas Eve is comin’ soon, now you dear old man 

Whisper what you’ll bring to me, tell me if you can

 

When the rooster’s fast asleep, I’ll be sleepin’, too 

Down the chimney you will creep bringin’ toys with you 

Our cowboy boots will all be there lined up in a row 

Mine will be the smallest pair, you’ll be sure to know

 

Oh, Jolly Texas Santa Claus at Santa's Wonderland 

I can't wait til Christmas Eve 'cause I'm your biggest fan 

I’ll set milk and cookies out by the Christmas tree 

Thank you Texas Santa Claus for what you’ll bring to me

 

We wish y’all a Merry Christmas 

We wish y’all a Merry Christmas 

We wish y’all a Merry Christmas 

And a Happy New Year

 

Glad tidings we bring to you and your kin 

Have a Merry Texas Christmas Y’all and a Happy New Year

 

We wish y’all a Merry Christmas 

We wish y’all a Merry Christmas 

We wish y’all a Merry Christmas 

And a Happy New Year

 

Have a Happy Texas New Year

9. Christmas Star

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


Christmas star I see you shining bright 

Darkness cannot hide y our gleaming light 

Your radiant beams of gold were shining long ago 

On a simple manger meek and low

 

So shine on Christmas star for all the world to see 

Illuminate our hearts and show us what could be 

If we only learned to live in peace and harmony 

Oh shine on Christmas star, keep shining... on me

 

It ’s true today as from the very first 

Your bridge of light connects the universe 

So shine on if you can and help us understand 

Bridging heart to heart and hand to hand

 

So shine on Christmas star for all the world to see 

Illuminate our hearts and show us what could be 

If we only learned to live in peace and harmony 

Oh shine on Christmas star, keep shining... 

Oh shine on Christmas star, keep shining... on me

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


A Christmas moon as big as Texas and a north star shinin' bright 

The crazy pace of Christmas Eve has settled into a silent night 

Yuletide season's got a hold on us and our love is flowin' free

12. Anytown, USA

Songwriter: Jackson Greer (BMI)


I was rocked in the cradle of Texas 

Where Texas Pride is so infectious 

The home of Willie, Waylon and Strait 

There ain’t noplace like the Lone Star state 

But I’ve been blessed to travel this country 

I’ve been amazed by people that I meet 

We've got our differences, that’s no lie 

But we’re the same come Christmastime cuz

 

We've got our Christmas lights shinin’ bright 

In Anytown, USA 

We’re singin’ Jingle Bells and Silent Night 

In Anytown, USA 

We've got our Christmas spirit flyin’ high 

In Anytown, USA

 

From the Atlantic over to the Pacific 

Everybody's gettin' so colorific 

From east to west, and north to south 

We've got our Christmas on, there ain’t no doubt 

I got some friends out in California 

And they might never "Gig" or "Hook ‘em Horn" ya 

But them Westerners are still all right cuz 

They shine like Texas on a Christmas night when

 

We've got our Christmas lights shinin’ bright 

In Anytown, USA 

We’re singin’ Jingle Bells and Silent Night 

In Anytown, USA 

We've got our Christmas spirit flyin’ high 

In Anytown, USA

 

All across this Freedomland 

At Christmas time you'll see it first-hand 

We're spreadin' joy and lovin' each other 

My American sisters and brothers

 

We've got our Christmas lights shinin’ bright 

In Anytown, USA 

We’re singin’ Jingle Bells and Silent Night 

In Anytown, USA 

We've got our Christmas spirit flyin’ high 

In Anytown, USA

 

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Y'all 

In Anytown, USA 

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Y'all 

In Anytown, USA 

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Y'all
