The Cowboy Song

The Cowboy Song
(Tim Wallace)

(Ccowboy sings)
I was ridin' along on the prairie when one day I happened upon
Some boys ridin herd into Denver, and the Trail Boss hired me on
They all seemed like regular fella's, we laughed and we joked and we swore
Then I noticed a mare with no rider, and I asked the boss "What that for?"

(Boss Replies in deep voice)
Well its a lonely life on the prarie, when the women are so far away
And old Buttercup sure comes in handy, whenever we need a good lay-dee-odle-ay

Well me, I'm an old fashioned cowboy, but I never learned that one in school
Here I was stuck on the prarie with a whole bunch of horsef---ing fools
But as time went on I got lonesome, and nature was takin its course
It wasn't too long till I found out that I was in love with a wonderful horse

I lead her away from the campfire, just me and my sweet Buttercup
I stood on top of an old barrel cactus and proceeded to hitch myself up
The trail boss heard the commotion, and found me a-humpin away
He stood there and laughed his fool head off, and this is what he had to say

(Boss) Well a man's gotta do what he has to,
       And son I aint puttin you down
       But when me an the fellas start feelin that way,
       We usually just ride her to town.
