Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song a number of years ago during a particularly dark time in my life. Also I was watching the HBO series Deadwood, hence the cowboy inspiration. I wrote it for all who have endured hardships as children, especially abuse and neglect, and the struggle to break free from that self-limiting story woven since childhood and destructive patterns of behavior. It is about the feelings of loneliness and helplessness that come with feeling trapped in the story, destined to forever repeat the same mistakes. And of course always searching for love and belonging, and self-love is sometimes the hardest to find.

This song is right out of the Far Cry 5 video game. And I mean that in the best complimentary way. A credit to it's authentic sound

Lyrics

I'm a Black-hearted Cowboy sittin' all alone
With no horse to ride and nowhere to roam
The moon sits high and the whiskey has run dry
I'm wonderin' what the hell I'm gonna do with my life

When I was a boy my daddy beat me down
He said 'Son you better learn to pick yourself up off the ground'
Whiskey on his breath and the Devil in his eye
Momma in the corner tryin' not to cry

Black-hearted Cowboy
I'm just lookin' for love
But every time the mornin comes
It all turns to dust
Black-hearted Cowboy

Well it takes a lot of doin' to make a boy cold
But that's what happens when you've got no one to hold
Ya now I'm tough like a broken glass shard
Hard and jagged and shattered and scarred

I'm a Black-hearted Cowboy sittin' all alone
With no horse to ride and nowhere to roam
The moon sits high and the whiskey runnin dry
I'm wonderin what the hell I'm gonna do with my life

Black-hearted Cowboy
I'm just lookin' for love
But every time the mornin comes
It all turns to dust
Black-hearted Cowboy
