Watch These Rockers Celebrate the Holidays in the Lone Star State with 'It's a Texas Christmas'

Texas does everything a little bit different so it makes sense that the state would have its own sub-genre of Christmas songs. George Strait, Gene Autry and Dale Watson have all put their spin on holiday tunes for the Lone Star State and now there's a new addition to the library of songs. Rockers Demir Demirkan and Lance Keltner pay tribute to Christmastime in the capital city with their new song "It's a Texas Christmas."

The tune honors the state's often balmy weather and celebrates Tex-Mex and drinking tequila instead of egg nog. The Austin residents give their home city a special nod with shout outs to Barton Springs and adopted son Stevie Ray Vaughan. The video even captures several familiar Austin spots.

'It's a Texas Christmas' Lyrics:

A shirt and shorts and drinking beer on the lawn
Another year's gone by with no jacket on
Tex-Mex and margaritas with mamacitas
Santa's down by the river chillin' with his dark shades on
This sure ain't New York City, No Chicago town
It ain't like Santa time in Boston or Minnesota

It's a Texas Christmas
And we sure mean business
No egg nog by the fire, we've got tequila y'all
It's a Texas Christmas
And we sure mean business
ATX, y'all we're wishing USA a sunny Texas Christmas

Stevie, Joe and Eric on the radio
We're sippin' hard lemonade with no rush no, no
All's cool as Barton Springs and streets under moonlight
Christmas trees rise high under the Southern sunlight

This sure ain't no D.C., No Michigan town
It ain't like Santa time in Kansas or Indiana
It's a Texas Christmas And we sure mean business
No sleighs down the hill, it's sixty-eight in the shade y'all
It's a Texas Christmas
And we sure mean business
ATX y'all we're wishing USA a sunny Texas Christmas

A merry Christmas, A merry Christmas, A merry Christmas in the Texas sun

This sure ain't New York City, No Chicago town
It ain't like Santa time in Boston or Minnesota
It's a Texas Christmas
And we sure mean business
No egg nog by the fire we've got tequila y'all
It's a Texas Christmas
And we sure mean business
ATX y'all we're wishing USA a sunny Texas Christmas
