A TOUCH OF TEXAS From "Seven Days Leave" (1942) (Jimmy McHugh / Frank Loesser) Marcy McGuire (with Harold Peary, Peter Lind Hayes, and Victor Mature) Also recorded by : Freddy Martin & His Orch. (vocals : Eddie Stone and Glen Hughes) McGuire: Headin' for that depot, Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye; Headin' for that depot, And here's the reason why: Ensemble: Why, gal why? McGuire: Got a touch of Texas in my talk, I got too much of Texas in my talk; Oh, this place will be my ruin, Ki-yi-yip-pin' and wahooin', Oh, take me back to Noo Yawk! Got a touch of Texas in my hair, Got too much of Texas in my hair. Yes, the sand from Amarillo Keeps a scratchin' on my pillow, Oh, take me back to Times Square! For I've seen ev'ry part of, Ev'ry part of What I'm deep in the heart of. Got a touch of Texas in my walk, Got too much of Texas in my walk. Oh, the sage may be a-bloomin', But for miles there's nothin' human, Take me back to Noo Yawk! Headin' for that depot, Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye; Headin' for that depot, And here's the reason why: Hayes: Now wait a minute si,* You've got a touch of Texas in your walk- Peary: Got too much of Texas in your walk. McGuire: I rode a bronco down in Dallas So be careful of my callus, Take me back to Noo Yawk! Peary: [Spoken] Hold on, chum, you got Texas on your brain, yeah. Hayes: [Sung} Yeah, too much Texas on your brain, McGuire: Oh, the brush that's full of rabbits Got me in these jumpin' habits- Put me back on that train! For I've seen ev'ry part of [Clap-clap-clap-clap] Just what I'm deep in the heart of. That's why I'm headin' for the depot, Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye. Mature: You'll never make the depot, And here's the reason why: You got too much of Texas in you, gal. McGuire: And that's too much of Texas for me, pal. Hayes: I reckon I will have to stop you. If'n you move, I'll have to drop you. Peary: Get back in your corral. Mature: You got too much Texas in your talk. McGuire: I got too much of Texas in my walk. But the funny part about it Is that I can do without it. Don't take me back, don't take me back, Oh, please don't Take me back to New York! Unused Lyrics Got a touch of Texas in my face, Got too much of Texas in my face. Oh, that sunshine in Laredo, Got it like a ripe tomato. Oh, take me out of this place! *He says "si" (pronounced "sigh"), which is his slang for "sister".

Got a touch of Texas in my hair Got too much of Texas in my hair, Yes, the sand from Amarillo Keeps a-scratchin' on my pillow, Oh, take me back to Times Square For I've seen every part of Every part of what I'm deep in the heart of (clap clap clap clap) Got a touch of Texas in my talk Got too much of Texas in my walk, Oh, the sage may be a-bloomin' But for miles there's nothin' human, Oh, take me back to Noo Yawk!
