Program Notes

As the official state flower, the bluebonnet is an icon of Texas. This musical revue is an assortment of clever permutations of the Texas folk songs: The Yellow Rose of Texas, the Eyes of Texas, and Cotton-eyed Joe. Listen closely for entertaining treatments of the themes -- some subtle and some not. Each instrument gets a chance to contribute to the hoopla, and the amusing percussion parts will keep the listener smiling. Enjoy this Texas-themed musical revue!

She’s the sweetest little rosebud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds, they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the Yellow Rose of Texas is the only girl for me!

The Eyes of Texas are upon you
All the livelong day!

The Bluebonnet Revue was commissioned, with a Texas flair, for the Keller Middle School band’s performance at the 72nd annual convention of the Midwest Clinic.
