Lonesome Cowboys was shot in January 1968 in Old Tucson and Rancho Linda Vista Dude Ranch in Oracle, Arizona on a budget of $3,000. The film features Warhol superstars Viva, Taylor Mead, Eric Emerson and Joe Dallesandro. The plot is loosely based on Romeo and Juliet, hence the names Julian and Ramona of the two leads.

Warhol initially planned to title the film Fuck, then The Glory of the Fuck. Warhol and Morrisey settled on Lonesome Cowboys while Warhol was convalescing following the attempt on his life by Valerie Solanas. John Schlesinger was filming Midnight Cowboy, which featured several members of Warhol's entourage, including Viva and Ultra Violet who, with Morrisey, shot a separate short film during shooting of Midnight Cowboy's elaborate party scene. Warhol initially endorsed the participation of his people but grew resentful at what he perceived as Schlesinger's poaching of Warhol's scene. Warhol decided to undercut Schlesinger by naming this film Lonesome Cowboys as a reference to Midnight Cowboy.
