Six Foot Six - Lyrics

He stood six foot six
Six foot six
He knew all the creeks
And the Cherokee tricks
But he couldn't sail and he couldn't mix
Sam Houston was a mighty big man
Yeah, Sam was a mighty big man

Sam Houston was the governor of Tennessee
‘Til he heard that frontiers' call
He couldn't stand the crowded lands
Cuz Tennessee was again too small

So, he packed his gear and he saddled on his horse
I said "Sam, where ya goin' to?"
"I'm goin' out to Texas,
cuz in Tennessee, I've done all about all, I can't do"

He stood six foot six
Six foot six
He knew all the creeks
And the Cherokee tricks
But he couldn't sail and he couldn't mix
Sam Houston was a mighty big man
Yeah, Sam was a mighty big man

Well, he went to Texas in troubled times
And he won the victory
Told Santa Anna "Go back to Mexico, cuz Texas wants to be free"
Well they chased him across the San
Jacinto river, Deaf Smith cut the bridge in two
Sam said "Santa Anna,
here's a treaty you better keep or I'll annex old Mexico too"

Yeah!!!!
He stood six foot six
Six foot six
He knew all the creeks
And the Cherokee tricks
But he couldn't sail and he couldn't mix
Sam Houston was a mighty big man
Yeah, Sam was a mighty big man
Yeah, Sam was a mighty big man
Yeah... Sam was a mighty big man...
Yeahhhhhhh...
