Cowboy, you've been all alone
For so long.
You're out on the range
On your own.
You're living in the saddle
And sleeping in the cold,
Who's going to keep you company
When you're old?

You once were, woah,
A fun-lovin' kid,
A smile and a joke
Were all you'd ever known.
Now you spend your time
On the trail all alone
Who's going to pay attention
When you're old?

You ride the hills
For weeks at a time,
With your horse
For company.
But, you're always moving
And traveling on,
Come back, come back home.

Insstrumental break

Cowboy, don't fret on the
Things you've done wrong.
We all make mistakes
When we're young.
Come back to the country
And the ones you
Know and love.
You just can't live your life away
On the run.

You ride the hills
For weeks at a time,
With your horse
For company.
But, you're always moving
And traveling on,
Won't you come back,
Please come back
Come back home.

I really enjoyed listening to this song. The presentation was very well done, from the instrumentation, vocals, and overall production. The lyrics told a story, which is what a Country song is all about. I think this song has great potential and definitely needs to find a home. Nicely done.

"Cowboy" really takes me on a marvelous with the memorable melody and lyric.
