intro      D / /     A / / / 
  
                 A                               E 
verse1     In a little cabaret in a South Texas border town 
                 E                                           A 
           Sat a boy and his guitar and the people came from all around 
           (E) (F#)(Ab) A                   E 
           And all the girls from there to Austin 
                 E                                             A 
           Were slippin' 'way from home and puttin' jewelry in hock 
           (E)(F#) (Ab) A               E 
           To take the trip, to go and listen 
                   E                                                       A 
           To the little dark-haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box 
           (A)(B) (Db)   D 
           And he would play 
  
turnaround D / / /   A   D / /   A      (repeat) 
  
verse2     Well, he couldn't ride or wrangle, and he never cared to make a dime 
           But give him his guitar, and he'd be happy all the time 
           And all the girls from nine to ninety 
           Were snapping fingers, tapping toes, and begging him don't stop 
           And hypnotized and fascinated 
           By the little dark-haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box 
           And he would play 
  
turnaround 
  
verse3     Then one day he was gone, and no one ever saw him 'round 
           He vanished like the breeze, they forgot him in the little town 
           But all the girls still dreamed about him 
           And hung around the cabaret until the doors were locked 
           And then one day on the 'Hit Parade' 
           Was a little dark-haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box 
           And he would play

By the way, this song is in B, not A.  Capo up 2 frets to play.  That's what 
Randy Scruggs did on the record, and Steuart Smith did/does live.
