8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I was rambling through a Texas border town,
Just another guy with plenty of time.
She was wandering too, When her eye caught mine,
In the panhandle town along the border line.
Well the night was cold and dreary and the rain that was a falling fast,
And I was getting leery 'cause I'd left another dearie in a town I'd passed.
I'll never more roam from this border town,
I married that gal and then we settled down.
Listen to Jim play "Panhandle Rag" on the 5-String Banjo (mp3)
