Lyrics

The Cowboy I Know
Here’s a new country song
Like the old west
It’s dust in the mouth
With an old buck skin vest
I’ve been down the off-roads
And I’ve yet to find
Too many real cowboys in these modern times
But the cowboy I know he’s a lonely old loser
A victim of love lost a broken down boozer
His horse is silver and two-door with rust-stains
His holdout is Lucky’s and old bar just off main
No gun fights at high noon no roping young cattle
Just ladies and liquor are is only battle
And he speaks like an outlaw who’s only done wrong
That outlaw is singing this song
Some folks say he’s as free as the wind
But his wind blows cold and storms on without end
Through the school of the hard knocks
While the names on the jukebox
They are his gang just a small world of friends
And the day when his cowgirl would be moving on
It was whiskey till midnight and tears until dawn
So he’d saddle up next to some brother in arms
And they’d talk of what few living cowboys there are
But the cowboy I know he’s a lonely old loser
A victim of love lost a broken down boozer
His horse is silver and two-door with rust-stains
His holdout is Lucky’s and old bar just off main
No gun fights at high noon no roping young cattle
Just ladies and liquor are is only battle
And he speaks like an outlaw who’s only done wrong
That outlaw is singing this song
