I Have Arrived In Texas

Paris, Texas

December 8, 2019

This post is premeditated. I knew before I left Charlottesville that I would post this song when I got to Texas. I'm a BIG Delbert fan. This morning I spent some time with a couple of older gentlemen in Ashtown, Arkansas. They were sharing stories of their lives; one said that he had worked for a while for "Brown & Root hanging steel." Brown & Root is a very Texas outfit, and I smiled knowing that later today I'd be posting this video (Delbert sings about working for Brown & Root in this song).

I hope you enjoy this song.


Welcome to my webpage.  I'm on a journey across the USA to visit all 22 Paris' - and points in between.  I'll be sharing thoughts, photos and videos along the way - as I search for answers to questions that bother me so.
