West Texas Place Songs

West Texas Place Songs

Here are four songs with West Texas as their themes. Feel free to comment/add.

1) “El Paso” by Marty Robbins. I’ve heard a Hungarian traveler sing it perfectly word for word. To a lot of people, this song is West Texas.

2) “Best Ever Metal Band in Denton by The Mountain Goats”. A great song from their album, “All Hail West Texas”. Also listen to “Jeff Davis County Blues”.

3) “Desperadoes Waiting For a Train” by Jerry Jeff Walker. This different version of this cover song was released on Jerry’s landmark “Viva Terlingua” album.

4) Anything by Robert Earl Keen. Get his album, “Marfa After Dark”. Here’s footage of him from Austin City Limits:
