As Texas Standard has reported many, many, many times over the past few months, oil prices have been all over the place lately.
That was Typewriter Rodeo’s Jodi Edgerton’s inspiration this week.
Prices at the pump rebound
High, then lower, twistin’
All across the Texas lands
You’ll spot the moving piston
Of the pumpjack, horsehead beam
Nodding Donkey too
Pulling oil from the ground
Coverting it from crude
So fill your tank up and go for a ride
And give a cheer, or three
To the hometown underground liquid gold
Barrels of Texas Tea
