This song is played at many public events in Texas, especially at RODEO time!
Here is an easy way to play this Texas song, if you know the melody:
Left Hand = C position;
Fifth on LH = C + G;
Second on LH = F + G
Right Hand starts in C position;
then on “gggg…” goes to D position so that the 4th finger is on “g”. For ending from D position stretch thumb to “c”.
(LH) Fifth (RH) C C E —-
(LH) Fifth (RH) C C E (“Clap-clap-clap-clap!”)
(RH) GGGG A E D ——
(LH) Second (RH) B B D —-
(LH) Second (RH) B B D (“Clap-clap-clap-clap!”)
(RH) GGGG A E C (w/ Fifth on LH)
See chart on INTERVALS under “Piano Theory” sidebar for illustration of “Second” and “Fifth”.
