Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music.

When we dance together my world's in disguise 
It's a fairyland tale that come true
And when you look at me with those stars in your eyes

Like a storybook ending, I'm lost in your charms
And I could waltz across Texas with you

(And Leon)

My heartaches and troubles are just up and gone 
The moment that you come in view
And with your hand in mine dear 
I could dance on and on

And I could waltz across Texas with you

Waltz across Texas with you in my arms 
Waltz across Texas with you

Like a storybook ending, I'm lost in your charms
And I could waltz across Texas with you
