HE'LL WALTZ ACROSS TEXAS NO MORE
(Written by Jim Owen)

Now at last it's happened, What I feared for so long
An era is over and E. T. is gone
So swing wide those pearly gates
And say welcome troubador
He'll waltz across texas no more.

What a grand reunion In heaven there must be
As Hank and Jimmie Rodgers say welcome E. T.
He's joined all the great ones
Who's gone on before
He'll waltz across texas no more.

No more driftwood on the river
Or I'll get along somehow
No rainbow at midnight
When the world turned you down
And no filipino baby or walkin' the floor
He'll waltz across texas no more.

[spoken]
E. T.], I wanted to write a special song for you
Because you were such a special man to us
You helped so many of us
And everyong whose life you touched
Remembered he was loved
So rest in peace E. T., you've earned it
[SUNG]
You'll waltz across texas no more.

[Bridge]
And long live your mem'ry and long live your name
From now on country music won't ever be the same
E. T., we're gonna miss you and those texas troubadors
You'll waltz across texas no more.

Tag
You'll waltz across texas no more.

How does the tune go, Gene?
Is it like 'Waltz Across Texas'?

(I hummed and can't quite get it to fit)

Ernest Tubb was high on my list of favourites! When I made my pilgrimage to Nashville I visited both of his music shops and his late night jamboree, but sadly he was long gone to Heaven by then! I too would like to know the tune for this song.

One of the greats for sure, and never a man to feel constricted by considerations of accurate pitch while singing.

The song is a fine tribute to one of the all time greats of country music. The mention of Ernest Tubb calls to mind a line from Thom Bresh: "I knew Ernest when he was just a bucket".

fine lyric..Gene. I like ET a lot.. he had a great band with some hot pickers... esp Billy Byrd, who went on to co-design the Gibson Byrdland guitar with Hank Garland..

.The closest I ever got to him was watching Marty Stuart abruptly end the conversation we were having backstage at a festival to run after that black tour bus which he bought from ET and fixed up..
it was pulling out without him, but stopped when he banged on the door..it probably happened a few times to Ernest as well...

I used to love hearing Ernest Tubb sing "I'm Walking the Floor Over You" accompanied only on his acoustic guitar as well as "Before I Met You" and many others including "Waltz Across Texas With You". He was a great country singer, one of my favourites.

"Let's say goodbye like we said 'hello' in a friendly kind of way"

a few years back I was on a slide, steel guitar workshop at the Calgary Folk Fest.. there was a gang of dobro players, lap steel swingbillies, bottleneck sliders, the usual suspects... when it came to my turn, I decided decided to sing and just chord rhythm.. the song I picked was 'Walking the Floor'... I did a good ET impersonation, everyone knew the song and the crowd was singing along... one of those songs I remembered from my youth... it was much appreciated
