Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music.In 1948, he was the first singer to record a hit version of "Blue Christmas", a song more commonly associated with Elvis Presley and his late-1950s version. Another well-known Tubb hit was "Waltz Across Texas" (1965) (written by his nephew Quanah Talmadge Tubb (Billy Talmadge),which became one of his most requested songs and is often used in dance halls throughout Texas during waltz lessons. Tubb recorded duets with the then up-and-coming Loretta Lynn in the early 1960s, including their hit "Sweet Thang". Tubb is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Ernest Tubb Lots of Luck lyrics
My heart will break as I watch you go but your kind of love is hard to hold
It seems you and I are losing touch so I'll wish you love and honey lots of luck
Well lots of luck and a big goodbye and you can't say I didn't try
It well could be that I tried too much
And that's why you're leaving but honey lots of luck
Now you want love and a big gold mine well that combination is hard to find
Cause money don't always walk with luck but you can go looking and honey lots of luck
Well lots of luck and a big goodbye...
Well honey lots of luck
Go on and leave now and baby lots of luck
