Howdy there, I'm Oedipus Tex

You may have heard of my brother, Rex

Yeah, I'm Oedipus Tex, that's what I said

But my friends just call me Ed

I had some trouble coming into town

There are things a man cannot take lyin' down

I was riding through the gulch which ain't too big

When I met some fellers in a double-rig

They said, "Step aside!" and I said, "How 'bout you?"

Ain't no one tells this cowboy what to do

So me, I wouldn't budge and they just sat

Until I shot 'em all and that was that

Well, howdy there, I'm Oedipus Tex

You may have heard of my brother, Rex

Yeah, I'm Oedipus Tex, that's what I said

But my friends just call me Ed

When I came into this town

There was a bigfoot hangin' 'round

He'd hit you with a riddle and here's the deal:

If you didn't get it right you were his meal

So I went out and found him in his spot

And I said, "OK, bigfoot, give me your best shot."

"What starts out on four legs then goes 'round on two

And finally walks on three before it's through?"

"Well a baby then a man," I said, "that's plain

And finally an old geezer with his cane"

Now bigfoot all he did was kind of wince

And you'd better believe he ain't been heard from since

Well, howdy there, I'm Oedipus Tex

I'm a hero!

You may have heard of my brother, Rex

Yeah, I'm Oedipus Tex, that's what I said

You heard me

But my friends just call me Ed

Oft at night when the coyotes are callin' my name

Makes me wonder if it's time to travel on

Oft at night when the moon is a shinin'

I wonder if my heart is sayin', "Saddle up at dawn"

Lately seems like my thoughts turn to ladies

Now please don't get me wrong

I love my pony best of all

But oft at night when the coyotes are whinin'

The moon is a-shinin' and everything is still

I hear that old familiar call

But you know, I kind of like this town

Think I'll find me a woman and settle down

Good folks, plenty of space

Besides it's nice to be in a place

Where everybody knows old Oedipus Tex

The brother of the legendary Rex

Yeah, I'm Oedipus Tex, that's what I said

but you know my friends just call me Ed

Well, you know me, I'm Oedipus Tex

I'm just as ornery as my brother Rex

Yeah, I'm Oedipus Tex, that's what I said

but you know my friends just call me Ed

Well, howdy, howdy, howdy, howdy, howdy, howdy, I'm Oedipus Tex

Some day I'd kind of like to know whatever happened to my older brother Rex

Yeah, I'm Oedipus, Oedipus, Oedipus, Oedipus that's what I said

but my friends just call me Ed
