Eck Robertson
TEXAS WAGONER. American, Reel (cut time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). "Texas Wagoner" is fiddler Eck Robertson's [1] (1887-1975, Amarillo, Texas) version of the "Wagoner (1)" or "Tennessee Wagoner" family of tunes, with parts reversed from what is usually played. Robertson recorded the tune in August, 1929, in Dallas, Texas, for Victor Records, accompanied by his family band that included his wife Nettie on guitar, his daughter Daphne on tenor guitar and his son Dueron on tenor banjo. It was one of four sides recorded at the session, including "There's a Brown Skin Gal Down the Road", "Amarillo Waltz" and "Brown Kelly Waltz."
