Finding 36 Belts on

The 28 Million Dollar Boardwalk on Lady Bird Trail in Austin, Texas.

Our first walk was on June 14th. As I was leaning against the rail to take a picture of a bird (heron) birched on a log waiting to catch a fish I discovered a belt embedded on the rail.

I snapped a photo of it and started walking east to go back to our car. Then I noticed another belt, and continued to find more belts with lyrics of songs. When I came home I researched the belts to discover another Austin Music Art Project.

I took photos of the 10 belts that I found and located the songs on youtube. I hope you enjoy this page. We will be going back real soon to find the remaining 26 belts. I am thinking this will make another great first coast project for channel Austin.

Matching the belts with the songs

What is the first Belt on Austin's Boardwalk heading West?


"Take The Ribbon From Your Hair"

Help Me Make It Through The Night by Kris Kristofferson


Wind Me Up - Watch Me Go

CLICK HERE for Wind Me Up - by Terri Hendrix. You can find her music and videos at www.musictory.com


“Allà in el Rancho Grande”

This song has been sung and recorded by mariachi bands, Elvis, and many others. It was the inspiration for a 1936 Mexican movie, and a musical produced ten years later. We have not been able to track down a copy of the Stasny publication of “Allà in el Rancho Grande,” but have presented above (see link to defendant’s work) – a copy of the melody and words to “Allà in el Rancho Grande” published in John and Alan Lomax’s American Ballads and Folk Songs (1934) that the defendant used to demonstrate that the song was part of Mexican folk culture, and not copyrightable.


"Pancho Was A Bandit Boy"

Pancho and Lefty by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard


"Blue Light was my baby - Red Light was my mind"

"My Love Is Bigger Than A Cadillac"

Not Fade Away by Buddy Holly


"Always Trust Your Cape"

The Cape by Guy Clark

This is fun. It reminds me of when Jamie and I filmed over 70 artistic cows in "The Cow Parade" and the pianos in "Play Me Austin". I love how our city is so artistic.


"Las Nubes Van Pasando" CLICK HERE Las Nubes Van Pasando by Little Joe Y La Familia Las Nubes A rare 1977 performance by Little Joe of his signature hit with Johnny Hernandez.
