Lyrics:

Terlingua, USA

I've been out here for fourteen years
You know that I have yet to shave
Terlingua, TX, babe
Land of the free, home of the brave

America!

I quit my job, I burned my money
Moved out here when times got bad
An old mercury mine ain't much to look at
I just needed a place to go mad

Maybe it's the lack of water
Maybe it's the way we talk
Broken English, fixed-up Spanish
Drown your worries, don't mind the clock

So come on out you Cosmic Cowboys
Strap on them dusty boots
Tell the Beatniks, tell the Hippies
Bring out your hula-hoops

Eat your peas it's New Years Day
This is your only chance
No one knows your walk of life
If all your gonna do is dance
Let's dance!

You come from Austin, come from Houston
Y'all come from San Antone
Enjoy the porch, enjoy the mountains
Oh we'll be here when you are long gone

Twice a year you come for chili
Seek black-eyed peas on every First
I don't care what ya come for
As long as you buy one of my T-shirts

Look at you in your cardboard tower
As you judge my fun and games
How you gonna stand on high
When I'm dancin' round its flames

So come on out you Cosmic Cowboys
Strap on them dusty boots
Tell the Beatniks, tell the Hippies
Bring out your hula-hoops

Eat your peas it's New Years Day
This is your only chance
No one knows your walk of life
If all your gonna do is dance
Let's dance!

C'mon and dance with me, dance with me
C'mon and shake it now, shake it now
C'mon and dance

Well I might look fifty but I ain't hit forty yet
Too much wind, too much sun
Never had it made in the shade
I'll find rest when the dancin's done

Some people think that I've gone feral
Just found a girl who likes to get lost
She wears all red leather like a wild she-devil
I feel the flames when she takes it off

Wooo!

So come on out you Cosmic Cowboys
Strap on them dusty boots
Tell the Beatniks, tell the Hippies
Bring out your hula-hoops

Eat your peas it's New Years Day
This is your only chance
No one knows your walk of life
If all your gonna do is dance
I said, no one knows your walk of life
No one knows your walk of life
No one knows your walk of life
If all your gonna do is dance
Let's dance!

C'mon and dance with me, dance with me
C'mon and shake it now, roll it slow
C'mon and dance

I've been out here for fourteen years
You know that I have yet to shave
Terlingua, TX, babe
Land of the free, home of the brave
