san antonio song

“Cowboy Blues: She broke my heart…and I miss her rabbit stew.” This collage uses the Starmer-designed cover of “San Antonio Song,” original sheet music by Harry Williams and Egbert VanAlstyne copyrighted in 1907. Part of the chorus serves as a backdrop for the “gal” who got away, pictured here as a huntress.

    I LOVE this song! My dad had it on an old silver label record in the 70’s; I remember listening to it as a child-I STILL remember the chorus.

    I’d love to hear Willie Nelson record this.
