HARD ROAD TO TEXAS. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Mississippi. A Major. AEae (or GDgd) tuning (fiddle). AABCCC. While there is no exactly similar tune in print or recording to this one, Tom Rankin (1985) notes this tune is made up of common melodic material in the old-time tradition, so it sounds like other better known tunes.
