We all know about J F K
And Dallas classic Icon J.R.
—The heaven-sent D.G.R.
Here in Tedxas everything’s bigger
From grand mansions to maxi-cars;
But no one’s found anything bigger
—–Than the Heart of D G R
Native born in scenic San Antonio
To great parents P A R and R A R
Everyone predicted even early on
—-Dave was our ‘rising star.”
He rose to Springfield, Missouri
He rose to Wisconsin too—
Churches all across America
Are blessed by what he can do.
He’s raised two beautiful daughters
Along with his darling wife Sue–
Third World churches owe him thanks
For what David sacrifically did do.
We sing Deep in the Heart of Texas
But now truthfully near and far—
There’s no heart more generous
—Than the Heart of D G R.
His soul is one born of benevolence
He’s the Lone Star State Shining Star;
There’s othing bigger here in Texas
—–Than the Heart of D G R.
