Slinging and hauling wine in San Diego today

Been slinging and hauling wine today in San Diego, getting ready for the tasting tomorrow at Jaynes. Tracie P will be here in a few hours and everything’ll be set and I’ll take her for an evening on the town. :-)

In the meantime, I’m sure the folks back home would have approved of the song I taught the band when we took a little break this afternoon for some music. After all, it’s kinda my story ain’t it? ;-)

I was born in lousiana down on the ol bouyo
rasied on shrimps and catfish mame’s good gumbo
I got the ramblin’ fever said goodby to ma and pa
crossed that ol red river and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of texas all the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of texas gonna live here till I die

(instrumental)

I rode up in to austin the craddle of the west
just ask any cowboy he’ll tell you it’s the best
I met a texas bueaty I got friendly with her pa
I looked in to her big blue eyes this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of texas all the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of texas gonna live here till I die

(instrumental)

I started tamin’ bronko’s I made every rodeo
until I met a tuff one you know his name was devil joe
I grabb’d hold of his bridle just to ride this ol’ outlaw
he threw me from the saddle and this is what I saw

I saw miles and miles of texas all the stars up in the sky
I saw miles and miles of texas gonna live here till I die
