OK, I'll go across the Red River Valley, pretty good tune, and nominate
Oklahoma Hills or perhaps :Walkin The Floor Over You--shades of Ernest Tubb.
On a similar vein.  Has anyone heard the swinging version of Chattanooga
Choo Choo in Spanish by Carmen Miranda?  I heard it on the Live365 web site
a couple of days ago.
James, didn't you know that to a Texan there isn't any other culture.  The
Texas Martini is a good example--1 washtub full of gin with a bermuda onion.
