San Antonio Rose

A much-requested western swing song written by the legendary Bob Wills.November 29, 2015 at 2:40 AM #29068
I have an HP printer, and most of the time when I try to print the sheet music I get a page with the staff lines and a bunch of jibberish. If I mess around long enough I can usually get it to print correctly, but I waste a lot of paper trying. What has worked best is to bring up the music I want to print, then go to file/print preview. The preview may come up with the jibberish. If so I close the preview and bring it up again. On the second try it might blink around then come up with the music looking OK, and then it might print correctly. If not, I’ve got it to print right by selecting the box in the print dialog that says to select the pages to print instead of selecting ‘all’. Sometimes I don’t know what I did to make it work….but I’d bet I’m not the only one that has this problem..I’m just writing this to say if you keep trying you can probably get it done one way or the other. I also use Firefox which is open source. I suspect the problem is some HP or Windows proprietary garbage.November 30, 2015 at 1:16 AM #29075
This happens with a lot of PDF files, especially musical notation that has so many little images (notes and staffs). In order to print from your web browser window successfully, you have to print the page as an image. Here are some instructions:
Alternatively, save the PDF file to your computer, then open it in Adobe Reader and print from there.December 1, 2015 at 8:35 AM #29108
thanks John for doing this song, its always been one of my favorites.December 1, 2015 at 8:55 AM #29109
John, that was beautiful and thank you for it! How much have you lost? You look a little frail!December 1, 2015 at 3:46 PM #29113
You’re welcome, Joe and Rock. 🙂
Rock, I lost 25 pounds, but then gained 5 back. 🙁 Thank you though!December 1, 2015 at 7:16 PM #29114
John, Scott would be happy! Your looking great! 🙂December 2, 2015 at 5:33 AM #29117
Thanks good buddy! I am puting off updating my Friday health report until the end of the semester when I actually do something besides stand in front of a computer all day.
The good news is, last year San Antonio had the 2nd-highest obesity rate of any major U.S. city. At 31% obesity, it ranks only slightly behind Memphis. I can just move to San Antonio and make a living busking downtown. I’d fit right in!
Do you know what would make this romantic proposal in front of the Alamo even sweeter?
That’s right — a live rendition of “San Antonio Rose!” Alamo City, here I come! Puffy tacos, anyone?December 2, 2015 at 8:40 AM #29118
Haha! John, those people are in fine shape. Come over ta Tenn. You are about eight inches taller than me and I bet I out weigh you! 🙁 🙁 🙁 Wa Wa Wa. The last time I went to the Dr. well lets just say it wasn’t pleasant!
You keep up the good work though, I have to go walking now and I’ll be singing San Antonio Rose all the way!!!!!

I went for the walk planning to sing San Antonio Rose….But I had this, maybe the best written songs of all time, on my mind.
I cried, John. 🙁December 2, 2015 at 1:36 PM #29135
You should put this in the Tune Request forum!December 2, 2015 at 2:05 PM #29136
No…no he didn’t..December 2, 2015 at 3:43 PM #29140
John, I have heard you do a good Willie Nelson impersonation. We would really like to hear it!December 2, 2015 at 7:58 PM #29145
Haha I have a decent Willie but a better Cash. I apologize for the pictorial joke above. I only did that because I have been gaining my weight back!December 2, 2015 at 11:44 PM #29153
Thank you soo much for this lesson! I’m a western swing and a Bob Wills fan and I can’t wait to learn this tune! I do think, though, that it will have to wait until after Christmas! 🙂December 3, 2015 at 2:14 AM #29159
Kaeleigh, I can’t wait to hear you play this one!December 3, 2015 at 3:57 AM #29170
Nice lesson, John. Thanks for posting this popular tune.December 3, 2015 at 8:16 AM #29171
Hello Scott, it is good to see you..or hear you..well you know what I mean! I guess you went to the Islands or some exotic place! 🙁December 3, 2015 at 6:36 PM #29182

Anyone who’s ever been to San Antonio knows how popular the puffy tacos are. The problem is, they lead to puffy thighs!December 4, 2015 at 9:47 AM #29217
Ha LoL. I lost my heart in San Antonio!December 4, 2015 at 11:50 AM #29221
It is a beautiful city. I spent two days there and loved every minute.August 8, 2017 at 9:34 AM #52585
Just added Rose of San Antonio to my practice list. Always loved it and just had someone from that town spend a night with us so was inspired. Enjoy reading these histories of the songs that you add too. Enjoy wandering about in that town too.
The Alamo fascinates me and I may have a family member that fought there too. Col. Travis and I may share some relatives from the 1700’s but haven’t done extensive research yet but have Ancestry .com on the payroll now to help me on that.
Wasn’t aware of Bob Wills having been a barber. Thanks for defining “Fine” and “D.S. al Fine.”August 8, 2017 at 11:45 PM #52613
I really enjoyed my one visit to the Alamo. This is incidentally one of my favorite Johnny Cash tunes.
