Lubbock (On Everything) is a 1979 double album by Texas singer, songwriter and piano player Terry Allen, released on Fate Records. It was reissued on compact disc in 1995 by Sugar Hill Records.[4] and reissued again on CD and LP in October 2016 by Paradise of Bachelors. The 2016 LP reissue comes with a high quality 28 page LP booklet.

It was recorded in 1978 at Caldwell Studios in Lubbock, Texas, and was engineered and mastered by Don Caldwell and Lloyd Maines, who also played pedal steel and other instruments on the record. "Amarillo Highway" was later covered by Robert Earl Keen, and "Truckload Of Art" by Cracker. Little Feat released a version of "New Delhi Freight Train" on their 1977 album, Time Loves a Hero - two years before Terry Allen recorded it for the Lubbock (On Everything) album.
