Show us more of the tree!

Bark like that can occur on several species/genera of trees in your part of the world - if the tree is indeed in TX, which you do not state.

Celtis sp. (Hackberry) and Ulmus sp. (Elm) are two that come flying to mind.

If you would take pictures of the whole tree, and the closeups as available of stems, branches, twigs, and buds - that would make it easier to narrow the ID to a single species.

Ulmus crassifolia and Ulmus alata are winged-bark elms. That looks more like Ulmus crassifolia to me.

Picture taken in Baltimore area; Twigs have chambered pith, especially near the nodes.
The leaves are simple. The leaf scars are alternate, roughly triangular to elipital. The lateral buds are small with several scales. I think it might be Celtis occidentallis.

Thank you for the additional (and extremely pertinent) information - especially locational!

I could agree with the Common Hackberry prognosis - and that would be an especially "corky" one.

I guess that means no more pics...
