The Cowboy Song lyrics

GARTH BROOKS The Cowboy Song Lyrics
Roy Robinson)

Pushin horns weren`t easy like the movie said it was
And I don`t recall no dance hall girls
Or hotel rooms with rugs
You worked hot and tired and nasty
Rode your pony`s head too low
There were all the nights you couldn`t sleep
`Cause it was too damn cold
And you`d sing `Strawberry Roan` and `Little Joe`

Like the time we hit the river
And the rains began to fall
And the water was risin` so damn fast
We thought it`d drown us all
We lost a lot of steers that day
And four to five good mounts
But when all the boys rode into camp
We knew that`s what counts
And we sang, yippie ti yi yay and `Amazing Grace`

Or the night they broke behind us
And then took us by surprise
I whistled out to Bonner, I seen the terror in his
And he rode for all his horse would ride
And I know he done his best
But he crossed over Jordan ridin` Dunny to his death
And we sang `Bringing in the Sheaves` and `The Rugged
So when you see the cowboy, he`s not ragged by his
He never meant to bow them legs
Or put that gravel in his voice
He`s just chasin` what he really loves
And what`s burnin` in his soul
Wishin` to God that he`d benn born a hundred years
Still singin` `Strawberry Roan` and `Little Joe
