Sir Douglas Quintet singles chronology

She's About a Mover is a 1965 song by the Sir Douglas Quintet.[3] and was quickly covered by several other artists. The song has a 12-bar blues structure, and is structured in a similar manner to Holland-Dozier-Holland's "Can I Get a Witness" and Ray Charles' "What'd I Say".[4]

The song was named the number one 'Texas' song by Texas Monthly, also charting at #15 on the UK Singles Chart.[5] With a Vox Continental organ riff provided by Augie Meyers and a soulful vocal by lead singer-guitarist Doug Sahm, the track has a Tex-Mex sound. The regional smash became a breakaway hit, and the recording was used in the soundtracks of the films Echo Park (1986), American Boyfriends (1989), The Doors (1991), Riding in Cars with Boys (2001), Sorority Boys (2002), and Beautiful Darling (2010).[6]

In 1983, the song appeared on Ringo Starr's ninth album Old Wave.
