I grew up a-dreamin' of bein' a cowboy
Pursuin' the life of my high ridin' heroes

Don't you hold on to nothin' too long
With the words of a sad country song
My heroes have always been cowboys
Sadly, in search of, but one step in back of

From being alone too long
Knowin' well that your best days are gone
Pickin' up hookers instead of my pen
Old worn-out saddles, and old worn-out memories

And they still are, it seems
Themselves and their slow movin' dreams
Themselves and their slow movin' dreams.
