    Stevie Ray Vaughan Handwritten Lyrics for an Unpublished and Unrecorded Song "Mustang to Dallas." An 8.5" x 11" lined yellow sheet from a legal pad with Stevie Ray's handwritten lyrics to a song he composed in 1983. It is titled, signed, and dated at the top: "Mustang To Dallas © 1983 S R Vaughan". The lyrics tell the story of arriving in Dallas, playing in a band, and getting a recording contract. When the record company guy hands him the keys to a new Cadillac, he turns them down saying: "I think my Mustang's Doin' Fine!" The complete lyric transcription is on our website. Interestingly, he adds notes to the side about the performance: "'D' - Rumble/'Move in' Blues/Texas/Style" and, beneath the line for the solo, he writes: "Albert & Freddy Sh*t" (a reference to two of his blues guitar heroes, Albert King and Freddie King). The lyrics are matted with two color photos and framed to an overall 32" x 22". No need to mention how rare and desirable this is. Sheet is slightly crumpled; otherwise Excellent condition.
