Cowboy Song

© McEwan / Matthews 2003

It's true what they tell you, that life on the road can be hard
Sitting in truck stop cafes, no idea where you are
Sipping a coffee and spinning the jukebox alone
Thinking of you and quiety wishing for home

After the dust has settled
When the trailers are packed up and gone
I'll give you more than mere affection
More than a cowboy song
When the lights and the smoke have faded
And the road home don't seem quite so long
I'll give you more than mere affection
More than a Cowboy song

I'm tired of not sleepingin motels and trailers and cars
Playin' night after night in sweat stained honky tonk bars
Strummin gmy guitar and singing the heataches of life
'bout a tired old man and his lonely wife

After the dust has settled
When the trailers are packed up and gone
I'll give you more than mere affection
More than a cowboy song
When the lights and the smoke have faded
And the road home don't seem quite so long
I'll give you more than mere affection
More than a Cowboy song

They say finding comfort with strangers will bring you no shame
But after a while those puckered up smiles
all start to look the same

So I'm telling the cowboys and honky tonks I need some rest
They asked for some years and I know that I gave them my best
But the road's reached an end and there's only one thing left to do
So I'm packing my guitar and heading home to you

After the dust has settled
When the trailers are packed up and gone
I'll give you more than mere affection
More than a cowboy song
When the lights and the smoke have faded
And the road home don't seem quite so long
I'll give you more than mere affection
More than a Cowboy song
