Lyrics

VERSE 1
From boardrooms to bedrooms
And egos with no headroom
She thinks she?s losing her mind
While making the climb
From deadlines to headlines
And fat slobs with fine wine
She?s sick of the grind,
She works nine to nine
So she longs for her pillow
As she stares out the window
And dreams of a time when living was fine

CHORUS
And she?s cryin? cowboy, cowboy
Where the hell is my cowboy?
I sure could use a guitar man tonight
She?s cryin? cowboy, cowboy
Where the hell is my cowboy?
I just need a good man to make me right

VERSE 2
From dashboards to dartboards
And bums holding cardboard
He?s looking for a sign
While driving the line
From zip codes to bar codes
And dead ends on side roads
He wants to go home
To get rid of his load
So he longs for his pillow
As he stares out the window
And dreams of a time when living was fine

CHORUS
And he?s cryin? cowgirl, cowgirl
Where the hell is my cowgirl?
I sure could use a guitar gal tonight
He?s cryin? cowgirl, cowgirl
Where the hell is my cowgirl?
I just need a good gal to get me right

BRIDGE
They said it was fate driving I-ninety-eight
When she crossed the line and he stopped just in time
Avoiding collision with angelic precision

CHORUS
And she?s cryin? cowboy, cowboy
Where the hell is my cowboy?
I sure could use a guitar man tonight
She?s cryin? cowboy, cowboy
Where the hell is my cowboy?
I just need a good man to make me right
