Brand New Country Star

by Jimmy Buffett

from the album Living and Dying in 3/4 Time


Lyrics

Well, he out grew his sequin suit
Sold his Trailway bus
Let his hair get a little too long
Duck tails bit the dust
His custom made, pearl inlayed guitar
slipped from his hands
And in it’s place a new electrical one
He had flown in from Japan

`Cause he’s a cheeseburger eatin’
Abandoned Sunday meetin’
Brand new country star
He rides around in a Lincoln Continental
No steer horns on his car
Oh the record man say he’s the livin’ end
They’re gonna spin him right to the top
Yea, he’s a hot roman candle from the Texas panhandle
He can either go country or pop

Got a good ole’ friend name of Texas Ben
Tells him all the spots to play
And a sweet little lady, he calls her sexy Saddie
She’s with the boy night and day
They’re gonna open up a chain of fancy bowling lanes
The first one in his old home town
And on ribbon cutting day they’ll come from miles away
The folks will all gather round and sing

He’s a cheeseburger eatin’
Abandoned Sunday meetin’
Brand new country star
He rides around in a Lincoln Continental
No steer horns on his car
Oh the record man say he’s the livin’ end
They’re gonna spin him right to the top
Yea, he’s a hot roman candle from the Texas panhandle
He can either go country or pop
