I was riding herd one night on the Christmas Eve.
When I saw a spooky sight one you'd never believe.
All tuckered out and bone tired weary Santa Claus came my way
Dragging his reindeer across the prairie hitched to a big red sleigh

Santa got lost in Texas and didn't know how to leave.
Santa got lost in Texas all on a Christmas Eve.

Sit right down and rest I said here by the campfire's glow.
Share my coffee beans and bread before you have to go.
Your pretty damn like me he said you work in the winter frost.
I'm pretty damn like you I said but mister I ain't lost!

Santa got lost in Texas and didn't know how to leave.
Santa got lost in Texas all on a Christmas Eve.

I've been riding long says he looking for just one guy.
Texas is to big for me. Too dang wide and high.
I'm leaving you a big lone star and a pair of silver spurs.
Here in the land of cattle farming my last stop was you!

Santa got lost in Texas and didn't know how to leave.
Santa got lost in Texas all on a Christmas Eve.

So he ate my beans and bread.
Drank till the pot was dry.
Merry Christmas! son he said, now I've got to fly.
You keep watch on the herd old partner
Don't let the doggies roam.
I'll just send for a Texas northern, it'll blow me home.

Santa got lost in Texas, and when he said goodbye he left the star of Texas
blazing in the sky.
As long as there's a Christmas and cowboys on the plain
Santa will come to Texas and never get lost again. He'll never get lost again!

agree  Melanie Nassar : Except that technically at least, a north wind would be blowing him even further away from the North Pole.
