Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind Lyrics

Cold Fort Worth beer, just ain't no good for jealous
I've tried it night, after night
You're in someone else's arms in Dallas
Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind?

Darlin' while you're busy, burnin' bridges
Burn one for me, if you get time
'Cause good memories, don't fade so easy
Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind?

You left me here, to be with him in Dallas
And I know it hurts you at the time
Well I wonder now, if it makes a difference
Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind?

You left me here, to be with him in Dallas
And I know it hurts you, at the time
Well I wonder now, if it makes a difference
Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind?
Does Fort Worth ever cross your mind?

Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind Guitar Tips

This number has a pretty mellow country vibe to it when it comes to both chords and rhythm. The Chords are C, C7, F, and G and the rhythm pattern is a simple root down up root up down up and repeat. You could play some bass notes in here but it feel a bit awkward to do so in my opinion.

You can start this off with a bit of improvised picking to replace the fiddle work going on.

In the middle of the song is the full picking break which again is mainly fiddles. As in all demos, I cover these picking parts in the full instructional tutorial.
