In a small cabaretIn a south Texas border townSat a boy and his guitarAnd the people came from all aroundAnd every the girlsFrom over there to AustinWere slippin’ away from homeAnd puttin’ jewelry in hock to take the tripTo go and also listenTo the tiny dark-haired boy who played theTennessee flat top boxAnd he would play

Well the couldn’t journey or wrangleAnd he never cared to do a dimeBut offer him his guitarAnd he’d it is in happy every the timeAnd every the girlsFrom ripe to ninetyWere snappin’ fingersTappin’ toesAnd beggin’ him don’t stopAnd hypnotizedAnd fascinatedBy the small dark-haired boy who played theTennessee flat top boxAnd he would play

Then sooner or later he to be goneAnd no one ever before saw that ’roundHe vanished choose the breezeThey forgot that in the little townBut all the girlsStill dreamed about himAnd hung aroundThe cabaret till the doors were lockedAnd then one dayOn the hit paradeWas the tiny dark-haired boy who played theTennessee level top boxAnd he would play
