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 Billy Hayes and Jay W. Johnson's "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 - Two Glasses, Joe Lyrics

 

Two Glasses, Joe

Set up two glasses, Joe

And turn the jukebox low

And let me sit and reminisce

While I pretend that she

Is sitting here with me

The way she did not long ago

We used to paint the town red

and dance until two

Well, I don't paint it red no more

But I'm painting it blue

He stole her love I know

But he can't stop me, Joe

From having just a dream or two

Set up two glasses, Joe

Maybe you didn't know

But there's a memory in the room

A memory that walks

A memory that talks

And haunts me everywhere I go

I'm just a fool who loves her

And will till I die

From the very first hello

To the last goodbye

Well this is it you know

So fill the glasses Joe

And leave me here alone to cry
