If you see me walkin' down the line
with my fav'rite honky tonk in mind,
well, I'll be here around suppertime
with my can of dinner and a bunch of fine.

Beer drinkers and hell raisers, yeah.
Uh-huh-huh, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

The crowd gets loud when the band gets right,
steel guitar cryin' through the night.
Yeah, try'n to cover up the corner fight
but ev'rything's cool 'cause they's just tight.
Beer drinkers and hell raisers, yeah.
Huh, baby, don't you wanna come with me?
Ah, play it boy.

The joint was jumpin' like a cat on hot tin.
Lord, I thought the floor was gonna give in.
Soundin' a lot like a House Congressional
'cause we're experimental and professional.

Beer drinkers, hell raisers, yeah.
Well, baby, don't you wanna come with me?

Recording Notes from Frank Hannon
"We felt that we couldn’t come down to the Texas border and record without blazin’ out some ZZ Top. Rumor had it that Billy Gibbons might be comin’ down to the studio so we burned down this one in a few takes in case he shows up. Of course if he does show up we’d ask him to jam the song with us, but in the meantime I’ll go ahead and blaze the solo in Billy style; long and slinky."
