not to dis the other tabs but they just weren't quite there. they sound good but seemed a little off.
This can be played with a capo almost anywhere including second fret or with out. some strings I 
doubled up on could be played individually or with the underlying string played open. Use the pattern
from C to get into F and a couple spots that say G are brief. maybe even just the 3rd fret on the E 
string.    oh, last trick.... Play the picking hitting the strings close to the 
back bridge sounds extremely 
accurate. gives it that extra twang.

C                                           G7
In a little cabaret in a South Texas border town
                                                      C
Sat a boy and his guitar and the people came from all around
G7          C                    G7
And all the girls  from there to Austin
                                                  C
Were slipping way from home and putting jewelry in hock
G7          C               G7
To take the trip  to go and listen
                                                                C
To the little dark haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
             F
And he would play
 
C                                                             G7    
Well he couldn't ride or wrangle and he never cared to make a dime
                                                  C
But give him his guitar and he'd be happy all the time
G7          C                   G7
And all the girls  from nine to ninety
                                                          C
We're snapping fingers tapping toes and begging him don't stop
G7         C             G7
And hypnotized  and fascinated
                                                               C
By the little dark haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
             F
And he would play
 
                                                 G7
Then one day he was gone and no one ever saw him around
                                                          C
He vanished like the breeze they forgot him in the little town
G7          C                          G7
But all the girls  still dreamed about him
                                                 C
And hung around the cabaret until the doors were locked
G7           C               G7 
And then one day  on the Hit Parade
                                                              C  
Was a little dark haired boy who played the Tennessee flat top box
             F
And he would play
