The name Quanah brings to mind Quanah Parker, who was a
comanche chief, and I believe he helped to bring written
language to the native tribespeople.

Melissa, glad to see that you have found mudcat. Do
you have any stories about music in your family,
with musicians in your family, I hope you have!

Another song that is similar to the one(s) mentioned
here is West Texas Waltz by Butch Hancock.
