My Pickup Truck Got Pregnant

about

"Here's a little tune about Disney-world cowboys. They differ from real cowboys the way cowards who send men to war but won't fight themselves differ from real men of courage and conviction."

lyrics

I went down to the western store
To get myself some clothes
Hand woven denim jeans
Boots made in New York

I want to look like I was there
When the hard, hard work got done
Like I put these miles on my face
Last year when I was young

Its hard to be a cowboy
When you've never punched a cow
That's not the part I'm after
So please don't show me how

Some day I'm going to Texas
When my clothes are broken in
Yeah I'll kick some ass in Dallas
All the way to New Orleans

But Tonight I'm flying to Las Vegas
Into the wind and on my way
I'm gonna dance like there is no tomorrow
'cause my pick-up truck is pregnant
And my wife got towed away

CHORUS
Oh my pickup truck is pregnant
Riding real low to the ground
And now my wife is missing
Sure, I checked the lost and found
The last thing she said was "bull sh** !"
And then she closed the door
And I guess I'll never really know
How come she left me for

Tell me why it makes a difference
If I look like what I'm not
I don't need to be authentic
As long as I look hot

I can drink from the long neck bottles
And talk that western sh**
There may be some pieces missing
But I've got the most of it

Nobody knows what's real or not
And don't nobody care
I can squint like Willie Nelson does
I got Lyle Lovett's hair

You only have to look the part
It's just like in DC
Where they went and made a president
From a cowboy just like me

And Tonight I'm flying to Las Vegas
Into the wind and on my way
I'm gonna dance like there is no tomorrow
'cause my pick-up truck got pregnant
And my wife got towed away

CHORUS
Oh my pickup truck is pregnant
Riding real low to the ground
And now my wife is missing
Sure, I checked the lost and found
The last thing she said was "bull sh** !"
And then she closed the door
And I guess I'll never really know
How come she left me for
