Well, maybe not. But once en route to Clarksville, Texas I had that song stuck in my head for the remainder of the day. Since Michael Nesmith spent a good majority of his childhood in Dallas, Texas it would seem like a good connection for the song.
The drive was long from Mt. Pleasant to Clarksville but quite pretty along the 37. This town is bulging with history and according to reports, a great many records from it’s earliest days are archived there. Clarksville is the county seat of Red River County. The courthouse is not in its original location. But at least it didn’t burn down like many have over the years.
It was a hot day in the town square.
