Parody Song Title:
"Did Tex Pull Town Names From A Barrel?"
The migrants move on to "Amarillo"  cow town.
From where waves break on Old "Corpus Christi". 
"Pancake"  it is said, was once, but now dead,
Did they name them some towns while on whiskey?
But the towns we adore, less 6,000 no more,
Must have been named by men, heads full empty.
Once with folks unglued, came the town "Cut and Shoot", 
One young male, quite remembered shot early.
Each fight has two sides, how the land they divide,
They were loud and were shrill and were cussin'.
Where a hedge stand did grow, our young lad did he post,
And let flew with some peppered shells seasoned.
Including a worm in tequila 'stilled urns,
It can get fully loaded these Texans.
On tequila they're tight, the Bell county gang,
May it be that "Ding Dong"  seemed appealing?
It's been long retired, take on "Medicine Mound", 
Nothing saved, 'cept gas pumps now failing.
A mile or two, mounds on high you can view,
For the sick do they render their healing?
When Juan rose late, soon his breakfast he ate,
Later smells from his ender came gassing.
The gas strewn methane, when the wheezing came,
Named the place called "Frijole"  from Juan's wind.
A nevermind name, some old coot gave no heck,
Saying town name, now why would we need ya?
No one did weigh in, so attached name waived then,
So it's "Nameless"  this town shall we know ya.
Some chappin' styled men. smelled bad water riding in,
Like a dung pit, pee yew, what a smell hole.
Old "Big Stinking Creek"  it so reeks that knees go week,
Did Tex pull town names from a barrel?
Does anyone know how the town of "Odds"  rose?
If a card turns, we win it, it's ours?
I searched night and day, for that town called "Noonday" 
Found no sunbeam was night did I find her.
Is "Nickel"  bankrupt and there's tight wad "Cheapside" 
Is "Squeezepenny"  broke - short of dollars?
They're all so inane all these places with strange names,
Are the lives lived in "Dime Box"  of squalor?
Names here on roads, mysterial things,
Towns in ruins as their names brought their mashin'.
There's Mexican themes, with towns named for beans,
Near "Highlands"  a motel the "Bateman". 
Down near Mexico, you'll find old "Del Rio", 
Take care in what bars you attend there.
And the iron brands glow, near the town of "Echo", 
On the trails signs 'No Enter' mean send there.
In the dusty town "Wall"  employed making hay,
All have very fine balers for feed stalls.
In "Turpentine",  they drank 99 wines,
Poured each man drawn 'til ended the barrel.
In Big Bend they're fond for a sip of draw in town
Eat a big steak in small, "Chillicothe". 
'Imperial Filet', river grill on the Red,
And the mail's late as ever in "Early".
