    This song has been requested so often.  I’m glad to finally have a lesson for the George Strait version, with the Gene Elders’ fiddle breaks.

    oh John!!!  wonderful.  I really love Gene Elder’s fiddling and you have done a great job at playing his break.  This is so helpful to think about the backup and see how you fit that in.   Thank you, thank you!!

    So laid back…  like a sweet Texas Summer morning.  Great vocals and presentation that carry the emotion of the piece.   Great fiddlin’ too!

    Loved it!    🙂

    I had working on that tune and was surprised at how accurate my transcription was for the intro and outro.  I’m just learning some ways to get out of first position so that was a big help on a few of the parts.  Thanks!

    Fantastic! Transcribing tunes is a real learning experience, plus it helps you remember it so much better.

    I love this version and you have done a great job with it! Singing and playing…

    I am unable to get the sheet music (not tabs) for the intermediate.

    I get a PDF error.

    Can you help please?

    Thanks, Kris

    I have checked all the links and they should be working now.  Try again and let me know if you still have a problem.

    I can’t get the video portions to work.  The MP3 and the tabs came through fine.  Any suggestions

    Hi Denise, you may want to try updating the Macromedia Flash on your computer. Or, try updating your web browser. The videos are hosted on Vimeo, and sometimes they require a recent version of either.

    I’m pretty sure his fiddle player’s name is Gene Elders

    Oh, now I see John’s comment above, “I mention Gene Elders, who plays these breaks in live concerts, but the recording features Buddy Spicher.”
