Waltz Across Texas

By Quannah Talmadge (Billy) Tubb
I was wrong, it's Ernest Tubb you can hear singing it on YouTube, not Billy.
Rise Up Singing chapter: Creativity (I'm not sure why), p.27

(:// means repeat from the beginning.)

When we waltz together my world's in disguise
A fairyland tale that's come true
And when you look at me with those stars in your eyes
I could waltz across Texas with you

I could waltz across Texas with you in my arms
Waltz across Texas with you
Like a story book ending I'm lost in your charms
I could waltz across Texas with you

My heartache and trouble are all up and gone
The moment you come into view
And with your hand in mine I could dance on and on
I could waltz across Texas with you

Before I met you I never would dance
I never would dance, it is true
But now we're together, I jumped at the chance
waltz across Texas with you

John Barger was a member of the San Francisco Folk Music Club, and members of that club wrote this next verse about him. Here's a link to his story. (Search the page for his name): http://www.sffmc.org/archives/may04/folknik.html

To you, John Barger, we make this request
There's one thing we want you to do
Just sing one more verse of the song we love best
To waltz across Texas with you

Mecca-Cola, a carbonated beverage from France, has been imported into Thailand as a new choice for soft-drink fans. "I don't have a special reason to enter this market," said
chairman and founder Tawfik Mathlouthi, "I just want Mecca-Cola to go everywhere."
Mecca-Cola is a carbonated beverage that Muslim people can drink, as the product has a halal label on its packaging. The company has no intention of conducting aggressive marketing campaigns in Thailand or competing with existing rivals, he said. Mecca-Cola simply wants to be a new choice. It is not provided in modern convenience stores.
Mathlouthi launched Mecca-Cola in France in November 2002 as a way of expressing his political standpoint against US policy in the Middle East. Company policy is to donate 20 per cent of its net profit to children's charity all over the world, half of that to the Palestinian territories, but not in cash, in order to ensure that it is not diverted to terrorist activities, he said.
Mecca-Cola does not spend money on marketing or advertising campaigns, in order to have more for charity.
