Cowboy

 

Always wanted to be a cowboy 

That's why I moved to Tennessee 

When I crossed the Smokey Mountains 

That's where I thought I'd want to be 

I was looking to be lonesome 

I was looking to leave home 

I was looking for some freedom 

I was looking for the road 

Got a cloud of dust behind the Mustang 

I told my boy in Carolina I won't be back 

I'll ride like the wind 

I'll just pretend that I'm happy and free 

Like a cowboy's supposed to be 

Seen the dirt up in the cities 

It's piling up on people's souls 

Makes them sick till they are coughing 

With a sadness dark as coal 

Seen vacant signs in motel windows 

Vacant signs in sorry eyes 

Swore I'd always be a cowboy 

Riding free till the day I die 

Got a cloud of dust behind the Mustang 

I told my boy in Carolina I won't be back 

I'll ride like the wind 

I'll just pretend that I'm happy and free 

Like a cowboy's supposed to be 

Some are born to find a husband 

Some are born to find a wife 

I was born to roam the country 

In a solitary life 

Got a cloud of dust behind the Mustang 

I told my boy in Carolina I won't be back 

I'll ride like the wind 

I'll just pretend that I'm happy and free 

Like a cowboy's supposed to be 

Supposed to be happy, supposed to be free 

Supposed to be happy, supposed to be free
