My Heros Have Always Been Cowboys

I grew up a-dreamin’ of bein’ a cowboy
And lovin’ the cowboy ways
Pursuin’ the life of my high-ridin’ heroes
I burned up my childhood days
I learned all the rules of a modern-day drifter
Don’t you hold on to nothin’ too long
Just take what you need from the ladies, then leave them
With the words of a sad country song
My heroes have always been cowboys
And they still are, it seems
Sadly, in search of, but one step in back of
Themselves and their slow-movin’ dreams…

*****

Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery
From bein’ alone too long
You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightman
Knowin’ well that your best days are gone
Pickin’ up hookers instead of my pen
I let the words of my youth fade away
Old worn-out saddles, and old worn-out memories
With no one and no place to stay…

*****

My heroes have always been cowboys
And they still are, it seems
Sadly, in search of, and one step in back of
Themselves and their slow-movin’ dreams

Sadly, in search of, and one step in back of
Themselves and their slow-movin’ dreams…

I grew up dreaming of being a cowboy

Cowboys are special with their own brand of misery

And loving the cowboy ways.

From being alone too long.

Pursuing the life of my high riding heroes

You could die from the cold in the arms of a nightmare

I burned up my childhood days.

Knowing well that your best days are gone

I learned all the rules of a moder day drifter

Picking up hookers instead of my pen

Donot you hold on to nothing too long

I let the words of my youth fade away.

Just take what you need from the ladies and leave them

Old worn out saddles and old worm out memories

With the words of a sad country song.

With no one and no place to stay.

My heroes have always been cowboys

And they still are it seems

Sadly in search of and one step in back of

Themselves and their slow moving dreams.
