Song Description

Leave 'em too long and they'll be gone!

Lyrics

Sad Cowboy
(c) Matthews/Naismith

V1
I was a young mand once
and I looked the part
Wore my shirt wide open so
all the boys and girls could see my heart
I drove the road and I worked the land
Did my best to touch the world witha steady hand

So I dropped my coat at the bunk house door
Left my worries and my troubles in
a place I don't see no more
And I met this girl, didn't know my name
but she got to know me pretty good all the same

Pre-ch
this time I passed she had a bed for me
so I told this girl this is what I'll be

Ch
Gonna be your sad cowboy
gonna be the one who leaves his boots outside your door
gonna be your sad cowboy for sure.

V2
So I'm an old man now but my memory's good
and I know the things I never said that I know I should
and I travelled far and travelled long
and I took the risk that some other guy would come along

And sure enough, back in '85
at the end of some old dust track stupid little cattle drive
I was passing by and I lost my key
the pair of boots sitting at the door don't belong to me

Pre ch
Next time I passed she wasn't there for me
so I told that girl
don't wait for me

Ch
