Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind (song)

"Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind" is a song written Sanger D. Shafer and Darlene Shafer, and recorded by American country music artist George Strait. It was released in September 1984 as the lead-off single and title track from his album of the same name. It reached number one on the country music charts in the United States,[1] and number 10 in Canada.

The song is about a guy back in Fort Worth, Texas. He’s enjoying a few beers and thinking about his former woman who’s now with someone else in nearby Dallas. The guy wonders if she ever thinks of him and the good times they had together.

Kevin John Coyne of Country Universe gave the song a 'B' grade, saying that it "has a great opening line" and a "more confident vocal and a Texas-centric focus certainly would’ve made it stand out back in 1984."[2]

Moe Bandy recorded the song for his 1977 album I'm Sorry For You My Friend. Keith Whitley recorded the song also in 1984, and released it to radio as a non-album track. It received moderate airplay.
