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 being alone too long.
You could die from the cold, in the arms of a nightmare,
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,
But 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.
