Texas fiddler Alexander "Eck" Robertson claimed authorship of this melody (Wolfe, 1997), named for Amarillo, Texas. He recorded by him with his family band for Victor Records in 1929. It was one of the most frequently performed numbers at his live shows, according to Blanton Owen. Stacy Phillips notes the first section is often played an octave higher than the middle register.
