I'm looking for the lyrics to a 1964 song by Johnny Mac, recorded in Australia and composed by Peter Hiscock. The only lines I know are from the chorus:

Takes more than a big sombrero, takes more than a fancy hat
To change a city slicker boy into a country cat

Many thanks for any information.

The song entitled "It Takes More than a Big Sombrero" was the B-side to the 45 rpm release of "Pink Champagne and a Room of Roses" in 1964. I've not located lyrics or a video of the song.

I've found the song entitled "It Takes More Than a Sombrero", but still no luck with a recording online or the lyrics. Perhaps someone out there has the record and could supply some info. Sorry I can't be of more help.

There was an American square dance titled Big Sombrero that came out at almost the same time and had the same word-for-word first chorus and only slightly different second. Can't be a coincidence. 'Composer' was Beryl Main.

Instrumental side sample here: Wagon Wheel 304
