Welcome to Retroville! It's 1942!
In 1942, the now-famous Deep in the Heart of Texas made its debut. Recorded by Alvino Ray, with words by June Hershey and music by Don Swander, it wasn't long before every Texan (or Texas wanna-be) was signing this tune.

The Lyrics:

The stars at night are big and bright
Deep in the heart of Texas
The prairie sky is wide and high
Deep in the heart of Texas
The sage in bloom is like perfume
Deep in the heart of Texas
Reminds me of the one I love
Deep in the heart of Texas
The coyotes wail along the trail
Deep in the heart of Texas
The rabbits rush around the brush
Deep in the heart of Texas
The cowboys cry, "Ki-yip-pee-yi"
Deep in the heart of Texas
The dogies bawl and bawl and bawl
Deep in the heart of Texas
