Song Description

Reflections of a boyhood spent fascinated by Western Films and Cowboys and Indians.

Story Behind the Song

As a youngster I was completely fascinated by western films and what I imagined was the cowboy lifestyle. This song is autobiographical of my time growing up in Dublin, where I even saw Roy Rogers and Trigger........... This version is shortened by about a minute and is still longer than is ideal.

I like it. I'm old enough to have grown up playing cowboys and Indians. Well done and well played.

    - Marc S. Pate

It's a good story, with lots of good imagery. The singer does a good job of painting the picture. All of us who grew up playing games like this - not video games - can sure relate to what a wonderful, imaginative childhood we shared.

    - Rick McGee
Lyrics

COWBOYS & INDIANS
© 2013 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley

Verse One:
Growing up as a young boy his life could be tough
But just being a cowboy was always enough
He carried a sixgun, and he never felt strange
An imaginary horse on a make believe range

Chorus:
Hey Mr Cowboy, so quick on the draw
The finest gunslinger your street ever saw
Amigos around you, some young as eight
The Cowboys and Indians of the Springfield Estate

Verse Two:
Each Saturday morning he breathed every scene
As he sat in the movies eyes glued to the screen
He lived every moment, in the flickering light
And he hoped he would dream of his heroes at night

Bridge:
High Noons and bar rooms and men hard as nails
Wagon trains rolling down old dusty trails
Tumbleweed blown through the streets of some town
Shane riding out with the sun going down

Verse Three:
Though the years have gone by, as he sits in the shade
He recalls very clearly the games that they played
They rode through the school yards, they rode through the park
Through the badlands and the prairies, until it grew dark

Chorus:
So Mr Cowboy, you can hang up your gun
Relax on the front porch your work is all done
The frontier is safe now, your legend is great
Amongst the Cowboys and Indians of the Springfield Estate
