Texas Talking


Here in Texas, everything IS bigger and better! We even have own own vocabulary called: Texas Talkin'

Here's what the heck we mean in the Lone Star State...

  • The engine's runnin' but ain't nobody driving = Not too smart

  • As welcome as a skunk at a lawn party = An unwelcome person

  • Tighter than bark on a tree = Stingy

  • Big hat, no cattle = All talk, no action

  • We've howdied but we ain't shook yet = We've met, but haven't been formally introduced

  • He thinks the sun come up just to hear him crow = He thinks his s#%! doesn't stink

  • She's got tongue enough for ten rows of teeth = She's a talker

  • It's so dry the trees are bribin' the dogs = Rain would be nice

  • Just because a chicken has wings doesn't mean it can fly = Appearances can be deceiving

  • This ain't my first rodeo = I've been around the block

  • He looks like the dog's been keepin' him under the porch = U-G-L-Y

  • They ate supper before they said grace = They're living in sin

  • Time to paint your butt white and run with the antelope = Stop arguing and do as you're told

  • As full of wind as a corn-eating horse = A braggart

  • You can put your boots in the oven, but that doesn't make them biscuits = You can say whatever you want, but that doesn't change a thing
