Somewhere Down In Texas (covered on parlor guitar)

It's a dreary day in Texas and thought this song would be perfect. This is a 1999 tune from Jason Boland and the Stragglers. It is often confused with the 2005 George Strait tune with the same title. This one is for everyone who lives in Texas or has spent any time there. Happy Sunday!

Intro @ 0:00
Song @ 1:22

Thanks John. I have a tenor banjo that’s a similar story.

I relate to the store boughts that I got broken and made usable.   They DO seem related to CBGs.  Especially on old tenor I have with bolt bridge and nut and home made tail piece.  Nice job, Kale.
