Story Behind The Song

Written for my son, Cabe.

Song Length 4:00 Genre Folk - Country, Country - Cowboy
Tempo Tempo Undefined Lead Vocal Male Vocal
Mood Endearing, Cool


He stands there so noble
such a handsome young cowboy
a champion of virtue
defiant and strong
Adventure and danger
are his constant companions
He lives by the law of his gun

Now the ladies stand waiting
for their hero to save
so calls quick to Ol' Broomstick
and answers their call
then races off to places
of more rustlers and bandits
As the ladies stand watching
the last bad man falls

But now the song on the prairie
is softly and faintly
playing the Sleepy Cowboy Waltz
singing hey cowboy it's time to come home
(repeat above)

get along there little dogie get along
they've played out that last round-up call
Tomorrow, tomorrow
will bring a new day
so hey cowboy let's hightail it home
