Recording on the album Benny Thomasson: Legendary Texas Fiddler


This well-known waltz was written by Benny’s father, Luke Thomasson.   It bears some superficial resemblance to the march version of Bonaparte’s Retreat, despite being in waltz time rather than march time. This is one monster waltz!  Tune to DDAD.
