Tucumcari also features in the Lowell George song Willin':

Words and Music by Lowell George
As recorded by Little Feat on "Sailin' Shoes" (1972)

1. I've been warped by the rain, driven by the snow.
I'm drunk and dirty, don't you know,
And I'm still willin'.
And I was out on the road late at night,
I seen my pretty Alice in every headlight.
Alice, Dallas Alice.

CHORUS: And I've been from Tucson to Tucumcari,
Tahachapi to Tournapaw.
Driven every kind of rig that's ever been made,
Driven the back roads so I woudn't get weighed.
And if you give me weed, whites and wine
And you show me a sign,
I'll be willin' to be movin'.

2. Well, I've been kicked by the wind, robbed by the sleet,
had my head stoved in but I'm still on my feet,
And I'm still willin'.
Smuggled some smokes and folks from Mexico,
Baked by the sun every time I go to Mexico,
And I'm still--CHORUS
