Merle Haggard – Texas Fiddle Song lyrics

I get this going fever everytime I hear a tune
That talks about South Texas where the cactus is in bloom
I feel I oughta be there every evening after dark
To hear the fiddler fiddlin' around a tune called Old Joe Clark

We played that show in Tulsa then it was Ft Worth bound
We headed south on 35 to that South Texas town
It's a different world and a lot of fun if you like that country sound
You can find yourself a partner when they boil that cabbage down

If you're ever down in Texas and feeling all alone
There's a lot of kicker places just south of San Antone
Ain't nothin' fancy mind ya just a place where good folks go
You can hear the bootheels start to click when they play the Cotton Eyed Joe
