This is supposed to be the final word. I've thought a lot of times that it was Dina, but always decided against it.

Take Me Back To Tulsa
Orig. Tommy Duncan and Bob Wills

[CHORUS]
Take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry
take me back to Tulsa, I'm too young to marry

You see that girl with the red dress on,
some folks call her Dinah
Stoled my heart away from me
way down in Louisiana

[CHORUS]

The big bee sucks the blossom
and the little bee makes the honey
Poor man throws the cotton
and the rich man makes the money

Little bee sucks the blossom
Big bee gets the honey
****** raise the cotton
White man gets the money
(is how wills recorded it)

[CHORUS]

We travel all over this country wide
playing music by the hour
Always wear this great big smile
we never do look sour

Always wear a great big smile
never do look sour
travel all over the countryside
playing by the hour
(Wills)

[CHORUS]

Would I go...
you ...
Let me off ...
and I'll walk down to Greenwood

Walk and talk to Suzy
Walk and talk to Suzy
Walk and talk to Suzy
Walk and talk to Suzy
(Wills. the earlier verse one wasn't in the recording)
[CHORUS]

Hey Ron!

You get the words to that out'a the same book I have:
Words by Bob Wills
Music by Tommy Duncan
Copyright: 1941

Naw: Must be a different book. The name of my book is:
"Bluegrass Harmonica" by Clarence Sterling.
Page 74.

What's this "Texas Swing..."
The songs about Oklahoma and Louisiana.

Rimfire content:
Had big plans for today: Was gona shoot my E-Mail match score.
But: Too cold. This Winter Texan is getting soft. 36 degrees here in Mission Texas this morning. When I was use to the Upper Peninsula Winters, A 36 degree February day up there was considered "Great Weather for a Shoot".

It's been bouncin' around zero around here all day. Set a new record low last night of -6.

Supposed to warm up to freezing in the next four or five days.

Tommy Duncan and Bob Wills were about as Texan as they come. :t

...but Bluegrass it ain't. Think Foggy Mountain Breakdown. and etc. :D

(I think Wills might have been saying "Some folks call for Dinah" and just slurring it....)
