Terry Allen – Flatland Boogie lyrics

Hey Up on the Caprock
Me and my baby ride
Goin a hundred miles an hour
Cause this old Ford can still fly
Got Four Roses in a sack
An we ain抰 lookinback tonight

Some top 40 Shorty抯
Singin on the radio
An there抯 cotton fields forever
On both sides of the road
It抯 till the Flatland Boogie
But where did the Wolfman go

Old photographs turn yellow
Times they come and go
But we can still do the boogie
From the High Plains to Mexico
Some old Angel from Amarillo
Must be helpin us to hold it on the road
Moonlight抯 a fallin
Look at that caliche glow
An old coyote抯 a howlin

Doesn抰 know he抯 too old
Headlights a shinin
On all we ever need to know

Cross the Llano Estacado
Baby抯 till by my side
Ain抰 no reason to stop
An there ain抰 no place to hide
You want to Flatland Boogie
Better flat out come and ride

Repeat chorus
