Hey,

I am looking for a singer/songwriter or band who gigs in Texas and wants to do the music for this song? I've got a rough a cappella melody, if you want something to get you started. But you can take it anywhere you want to go with it. I think it would be a fun song to sing live in and around Austin and the rest of Texas.

VERSE 1
Hey, Owen Wilson, come on over
We’re havin’ a party today
Bring all your old Austin friends
like (that) Matthew McConaughey

We’ll all get naked and bang his drum
Ann Richards says it’s OK
The police ain’t invited
and ‘The Georges’ are lookin’ the other way

PRECHORUS (or part of Chorus)
Richard Linklater (ya) better film this thing
If you don’t Rob Rod will
We need more than photographs
‘Cause Texas Characters don’t stand still

CHORUS
Texas Characters edges are rough
Texas Characters cuss a little fuss
A Texas Character: you might be one
Tonight the Characters are out for fun
We seek big thrills. We don’t stand still
We’re Texas Characters just like Hank Hill

VERSE 2
Hey, Ricky Williams, don't be too shy
We’re up for your Marley good times
Bring your Longhorn football friends
Earl and Darrell should fit just fine

We’ll pass the reefer and dred our hair
Coach Mac Brown digs the reggae
No Sooners get invited
and the Ags are burnin’ weed bonfires today

PRECHORUS
CHORUS 2
Texas Characters edges are rough
Texas Characters cuss a little fuss
A Texas Character: you might be one
Tonight the Characters are out for fun
We’re on a quest, party dressed
We’re Texas Characters just like Big Tex

BRIDGE
Willie will bring his Holy holey guitar
and get us all off to a Luckenbach start
Bevo will dance with Reveille
as Molly Ivins swings with the ghost of Stevie

Butch and Joe and Jimmy Dale
that Tejas trio of yodel and wail
(Edie and Lyle, Robert Earl Keen,
Sara’s Equal Scary People all make the scene)
They’ll keep us movin’ right along
and everybody sings at least one Kinky song

PRECHORUS
CHORUS 1 (or 2)

END
