Lyrics

Are You A Real Cowboy

She watched him take a barstool
In a worn out Stetson hat
His old Durango boots
Still had some mud caked on the heels
his faded denim jacket
gave off one authentic feel
She couldn't help herself
She had to see if he was real
So she said..

Chorus
Are you a real cowboy
Can you really rope and ride
Or do you just look good in that hat
Are you a real cowboy
ever led a cattle drive
Or watched a shooting star from a sleeping bag
Now tell me the truth ...
Are you a real cowboy
Are you a real cowboy ?

Verse

She'd grown so disillusioned
With boys who played at being men
But couldn't treat a lady
Like she was more than just a friend
Is he really standing here
Somewhere beyond the silver screen
Is he a neon apparition
Or a figment from her dreams

Chorus

Are you a real cowboy
Can you really rope and ride
Or do you just look good in that hat
Are you a real cowboy
Have you ever led a cattle drive
Or watched a shooting star from a sleeping bag
Or fix a broken heart like the one I have
Now tell me the truth ...
Are you a real cowboy
Are you a real cowboy
Are you real cowboy

Loved this song. The vocals were perfect all the way through and the harmonies were great. The instrumentation was nice and simple but the vocals complimented very well! I think you may have created a new country genre....Country/Tranquil. :) It was nice and smooth sounding (relaxing) Good job. I'd love to hear more!
