lyrics

COWBOY

I used to ride on the plains,
and go roam any place I’d choose.
Oh, I could herd from the hills,
a hundred head with the skill known to few.

But nothing feels quite the same.
My trail is been replaced,
by a highway so black and tame.

I’m a cowboy without a west,
lost, looking for what’s left.
I’m a cowboy without a west to roam.

These days I ride city streets
'round a maze of concrete towered high.
Lights tell when to go and to stop
and I still have not seen the stars night.

There’s not much to my name.
a little out of touch these days,
like a ruin in a modern age.

I’m a cowboy without a west,
lost, looking for what’s left,
I’m a cowboy without a west to roam,
looking for any trace of home.

I follow the setting sun.
I follow the setting sun.
I follow the setting sun.

I’m a cowboy without a west,
lost, looking for what’s left,
I’m a cowboy without a west to roam,
looking for any trace of home.
Am I still wild even though
I’ve got no west to roam?
