Encouraged by Lewis Johnson, John Lang Sinclair wrote "The Eyes Of Texas" in 1903, basing the tune on the traditional "I've Been Working On The Railroad." It was first performed on 12 May 1903 at the Hancock Opera House in Austin, Texas, by the Varsity Quartet, accompanied by John Sinclair himself on banjo. Sinclair would sing the song in blackface at later shows. Elvis recorded it for the film "Love In Las Vegas" (US title "Viva Las Vegas") in a medley with "Yellow Rose of Texas."
