1198. Name that book

A Texas man, well-known for quipping,
Found his date on the rag, she was dripping.
He said with a quiver,
"I'll wade the Red River
But I ain't about to try sipping."

I thought I remembered the line, "I'll wade in the Red River but I won't drink from it" as being from Semi-Tough.  However, a (specious?) Google search yielded North Dallas Forty as the source.  Comment if you know for sure.
