'Amarillo by Morning,' by George Strait

Strait recorded the song in 1983, 10 years after the song was originally released by one of its writers, Terry Stafford, in 1973. The song was also ranked at No. 7 out of 10 on USA Today's list of songs describing a place – in this case, Amarillo, Texas. The list was compiled through online voting and the song was the only one about a town in Texas to make the cut.
