Lyrics

"JUST LIKE HIM"
(c) JC Tubbs 1978/2003

VERSE 1
This morning when I put on my coat and tie
I had to stop and wonder why
I thought about my granddaddy roaming the range
And riding herd on the old South Plains
The only tie he knew was on a railroad track
And he wore a coat to keep the wind of his back
I want to be a cowboy JUST LIKE HIM

CHORUS
I want to be a cowboy JUST LIKE HIM
And be as tough as the West Texas wind
I want to be a cowboy JUST LIKE HIM
And start living my life again
Start living my life again
VERSE 2
He'd work hard all week and then for fun
He?d ride the rodeo and sometimes he won
He was really good a roping steers
And making those pretty cowgirls cheer
I want to be a cowboy JUST LIKE HIM

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
On Saturday night he and the boys
Would go to town, make a little noise
Shoot their pistols at the midnight sun
Ol' granddaddy was a son-of-a-gun
I want to be a cowboy JUST LIKE HIM

REPEAT CHORUS
