Lyrics

I can see that lone star from a thousand miles away
Calling me back home though I've ventured far astray
When I see that beacon shining for me all alone
It calls me back to Texas and to home

Lone star shine down on my home town
Fill my memory light my way

Cattle in the old corral, the open range all 'round
Sunlight and the smell of new mown hay
I remember though I've wandered and much happiness I've found
Still I wish that I could be back there today

I know my home is waiting for me by the river shore
I know that all the ones I love would welcome me once more
In dreams I see them now though it seems I'm bound to roam
My thoughts are still of Texas and of home

(Instrumental break)

Cattle in the old corral, the open range all 'round
Sunlight and the smell of new mown hay
I remember though I've wandered and much happiness I've found
Still I wish that I could be back there today

Lone star shine down on my home town
Fill my memory light my way

I know my home is waiting for me by the river shore
I know that all the ones I love would welcome me once more
In dreams I see them now though it seems I'm bound to roam
My thoughts are still of Texas and of home

Behind the scenes

The composer of this song, Tony Marcus, actually commented on a video recognizing this song as being in New Vegas. He said, "I wrote and sang the song. It was recorded about ten years ago for a German company. You can find it on iTunes under Lone Star Tony Marcus (that's me). Glad you enjoy it!"
