You can watch old westerns or you kin move to west Texas. Midland/Odessa or Crawford might work. Problem with Crawford is that local boy has started importen a bunch a yankees.

IIRC somebody posted a link to a page that would morph normal languange into slangs like these in MD some while back.

Not sure what Sunitha's trying to say, but Googling around for "cowboy language" and "cowboy lingo" does turn up some useful pages. Here's a book that looks really useful.
