    Lyrics

    I am a lonesome hombre
    I spend my time driving my truck around town on Saturdays
    I moved here from the city
    I thought that maybe
    All of my luck would change here in Boomtown
    But it seems my face is wrong
    I don't fit in
    'Cause I don't have
    Cowboy, cowboy, cowboy lips,
    Cowboy, cowboy, cowboy lips ...

    Cowboy lips are all right, all right by me
    Strap me on a pair of lips and I'll leave you be
    High in the saddle, my Chapstick in hand
    Through snow and wind and rain and sleet and sand,
    Cowboy Land...

    When I'm with all my buddies
    My snakeskin boots and my belt buckles shine
    But they won't talk to me
    Even when I know their song I'm in the wrong key
    'Cause I don't have
    Cowboy, cowboy, cowboy lips,
    Cowboy, cowboy, cowboy lips ...

    Cowboy lips are all right, all right by me
    Jack Palance has got a sneer that's collagen-free
    If I had his mustache I'd wax up the tips
    To keep it off my cowboy lips, cowboy lips

    When I'm out honky-tonkin'
    I smoke my Marlboros with the filters off
    It makes me cough
    I can stomach Lone Star Beer
    But not shots of rye
    Rye can only get by
    Cowboy, cowboy, cowboy lips,
    Cowboy, cowboy, cowboy lips ...

    Cowboy lips are all right, all right by me
    Painted, pierced and puckered are for sissies, you see (I likes 'em)
    Weathered and blistered and kissed by her brand
    The kind of lips they wear in Cowboy--
    (way up there in Cowboy--)
    Lots of facial hair in Cowboy Lannnnnnnd ...
    (Here in Cowboy Land!)

    [called "Barber Lips" on album "Coaster" 2002 because it is sung in Barbershop style;
    shorter version titled "Cowboy Lips" on "The Bobs" 1982]
